Lions trade for TE Tim Wright - [Full Article]

The Detroit Lions have swung yet another preseason trade, although this one wasn't for a draft pick.

Detroit acquired tight end Tim Wright in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to NFL Network. There is no word yet on what it has given up.

That means Wright's addition casts some uncertainty of Joseph Fauria's future with Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: 

The move is an interesting one because Wright is a pass-catching tight end, with 80 receptions for 830 yards and 11 touchdowns the past two years, according to the story. And Detroit already has two pass-catching tight ends in Eric Ebron and Fauria, plus blocking tight end Brandon Pettigrew. The story said Ebron and Pettigrew, both former first-round picks, aren't going anywhere.
