Three months ago, the Baltimore Ravens terminated Shareece Wright’s contract with the Baltimore Ravens. He then signed with the Buffalo Bills, on May 1, 2017.

While he’s no longer a Raven, his dedication to whatever team he’s signed with, remains clear. According to Twitter, Shareece Wright took an eight hour Uber ride from Chicago to Buffalo, for a voluntary practice with his new team.

Shareece Wright did retweet the post from Tamerat Berhe. He hasn’t responded to fans asking how much the ride cost though. Hopefully it wasn’t on surge pricing.
