Dolphins | M. Wright faces obstacles to return to team

Thu, 17 Aug 2006 11:31:50 -0700

Armando Salguero, of the Miami Herald, reports Miami Dolphins DL Manuel Wright will face a tough road if he wants to return to the team after leaving because of emotional issues. The team has offered to help Wright through counseling after admitting he was clinically depressed. He must also gain acceptance from the rest of the team, who has remained in training camp to prepare for the 2006 season. DL Vonnie Holliday said, "Out there, it's kind of cut and dried. You're either with us, or you're not; you're either going to work with us, or you're not. Aside from that, here's a guy who obviously has a problem, and hopefully he gets it worked out for his own personal benefit and his family and so he can be a productive person in society. But the bottom line is the bottom line." DL Jason Taylor added, "It's not that we're tough on them or beating them down mentally. It's a standard that we've set . . . and every weekend when we go play, if you can't play up to that standard, you're going to have a hard time getting along or making it with this group."

Dolphins | Saban upset with handling of Wright story

Wed, 16 Aug 2006 15:11:22 -0700

MiamiDolphins.com reports Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban was unhappy with the way the media reported the story about him meeting with Dolphins DT Manuel Wright. "When we have medical issues of players, they are confidential. You get this information from other sources. I don't really think that's good for our club, but it's mostly inaccurate. The judgments that you make from the information that you get is totally inaccurate. It's wrong. It is what it is. Because I had a meeting with the guy doesn't mean anything. Does it? It's headlines in the paper today because you are drawing a conclusion to something that you know nothing about nothing. It's bad for our team. It's bad for our fans because they get misinformation. I don't think it says a lot about professionalism either." Saban said he did meet with Wright, but assuming the meeting meant Wright was returning to the team was wrong.

Dolphins | Saban meets with M. Wright

Wed, 16 Aug 2006 05:59:07 -0700

Alex Marvez, of the Sun-Sentinel, reports Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban met with DT Manuel Wright Tuesday, Aug. 15, in what could be a major step toward the defensive tackle rejoining the team. "We're trying to find a way to get all the parties on the same page," agent Peter Schaffer said Tuesday night. "The Dolphins are bending over backward in trying to help Manny out. I think Manny has turned the corner in terms of getting back on his feet and getting ready to play football and moving on with his life." Wright left training camp 1 1/2 weeks ago and asked the Dolphins for his release. Schaffer said he believes Wright's actions stem from a problem with clinical depression and that Saban and general manager Randy Mueller have worked hard to try and assist Wright.

Dolphins | Family encouraging M. Wright to return to the team

Tue, 15 Aug 2006 05:50:04 -0700

Armando Salguero, of the Miami Herald, reports Miami Dolphins DT Manuel Wright is being encouraged by his family to return to the Dolphins after missing the past 10 days with what he has called ''emotional'' issues. Wright's parents visited their son over the weekend, and a family member said they along with others have been trying to convince the player to return to the team. The family is apparently hopeful Wright will accept the help head coach Nick Saban has offered to get for Wright to help treat what has been described as clinical depression.

Dolphins | Saban not willing to let Wright walk away

Thu, 10 Aug 2006 15:03:53 -0700

Associated Press reports Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban isn't about to let troubled DT Manuel Wright just walk away from the team. "We don't have any of this stuff - 'When it doesn't work here, let me go someplace else," Saban said. "This is the real world. It's business. You have a job. You have a responsibility to do." He said the team will determine Wright's fate, not him. Wright, as reported, wants out of Miami because he's unhappy there. The team has been granted a roster exemption for him, so he does not count against their 80-player limit but he also cannot practice with them. He left training camp less than a week into.

Dolphins | M. Wright dealing with depression

Wed, 09 Aug 2006 20:13:57 -0700

Jeff Darlington, of the Palm Beach Post, reports Miami Dolphins DT Manuel Wright said Wednesday, Aug. 9, that he is struggling with depression and has asked head coach Nick Saban to trade or waive him so he can make a fresh start with another NFL team. Asked if he plans to play for the Dolphins again, Wright said: "I don't think so." "It's my choice. Like I told coach Saban, I don't want to cause any problems for the team," Wright said outside the home of his cousins, where he was visiting. "I didn't want to give him any bad press, so I have just kept to myself. They have a real good team and I think they're going to do great things this year. But me, personally, I just need a fresh start." Wright said Saban and the Dolphins have been supportive. Wright said he is struggling financially. Until last month, he had been living in a $1,500-a-month condominium in Pembroke Pines. Wednesday, his landlord, Mini Bernal, said he had missed three months' rent. Bernal said she eventually contacted the Dolphins, who paid the rent for him.
