Bills Cornerback Goes on Uber Journey
File this under the 'Whaaaaat?' category. Buffalo Bills cornerback Shareece Wright took an Uber from Chicago to Buffalo just so he could attend voluntary OTA's. Talk about committed! If you are trying to break a 17 year playoff curse this is a great way to start!
Now this isn't something I would recommend doing, because at the end of the day this cost him about $1,000. The drive was $632.08, and with the $300 tip, Shareece wasn't messing around. Never has there been a man so determined to come to Buffalo.
Shareece has been in the league a few years now (2011), so even with the league minimum he is still a millionaire. The money isn't the impressive part, it's that he did all of this to make sure he made a practice that he didn't even need to be at. His flight was cancelled, he could have called the coaches and said he would be there the next day.
Who would have had a problem with that? Airlines are not the best, and we have all been there before. But this is a guy fighting for a roster spot on a team that needs help at cornerback. You want to stand out? You make it to voluntary practice...in style. If you have the funds to do it you really have no excuse.
The only way this could get topped is if someone flies in on a chopper and lands on the logo at the 50 yard line. Get your popcorn ready, you know that's coming.
