Donald Penn not happy with Bucs' trade of Eric Wright

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers washed their hands of Eric Wright on Friday, trading the cornerback to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a conditional 2014 late-round draft pick.

Wright did his best to book himself out of town, as poor play, a driving under the influence arrest, suspension for performance-enhancing drug use and, finally, a second arrest greased the skids for his exit after one disappointing season.

At least one prominent veteran teammate was unhappy with the Bucs' decision.

As a Pro Bowl offensive tackle and six-year veteran, Donald Penn figures to have a voice in the Bucs' locker room. Don't be surprised if Bucs coach Greg Schiano tells Penn to keep it down when players report to training camp.

UPDATE: Penn followed up his remarks on Twitter with praise for Bucs general manager Mark Dominik.
