Bio

After two years of waiting patiently, Shareece Wright’s time arrived in 2013. A starter for the first time in his career, Wright led the team in passes defensed during the regular season and the playoffs, and he recorded the first two interceptions of his career, including a pivotal one in the Bolts’ wild card playoff win in Cincinnati.

The second of two third round picks by the Chargers in 2011, Wright appeared on track for a big year in 2012 after appearing in just seven games as a rookie. He was coming off a solid preseason, one that included a performance against Dallas in which he had a 73-yard interception return, a sack and forced fumble, and two passes defensed. But on the first play of the Chargers’ 2012 opener at Oakland, Wright hurt his foot while making a special teams tackle inside the 20 and it sent him to the sidelines for the rest of the night and for the next six games. Once healed, he played in each of the Chargers’ last nine games, but he didn’t make any starts and finished the year with just 14 tackles on defense and seven more on special teams.

A native of Colton, Calif., east of Los Angeles, the Chargers were Wright’s hometown team and they were the team he was hopeful would draft him. He even brought a Chargers hat with him to his 2011 draft party just in case the call came, which it did after Wright’s strong finish to an up-and-down collegiate career at nearby USC.

Wright has a relationship with with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The daughter of his former football coach from Colton High School has the disease and it inspired Wright to work with the foundation to help put a end to diabetes.

In February, Wright became a father himself, celebrating the birth of his son, Elijah James.
