With Bills CB Shareece Wright

Buffalo Bills cornerback Shareece Wright made an expensive, eight-hour Uber trip to NY on Monday just to ensure his presence at a voluntary team practice, according to ESPN.

Buffalo Bills cornerback Shareece Wright really wants to make a good impression with his new team, even if it means he has to travel 550 miles to attend a voluntary practice. After all, the driver had to get back to Chicago after the drive to Buffalo.

Wright also added a $300 tip on top of the $632.08 fare, according to his agent, Tamerat Berhe.

He said the release wasn't authorized by managers or owners and the team has taken steps to make sure it wouldn't happen again. The team didn't immediately return phone and email messages from The Associated Press seeking comment.

After landing in Chicago's O'Hare Airport on Sunday afternoon, Wright hopped in an Uber headed toward the west side of New York State. His flight must have been canceled, because he ended up taking an Uber more than eight hours and nearly 550 miles to the Bills' facility.

Twitter users praised Wright's dedication, which has set the bar fairly high for other players.

A cornerback who spent the first four years of his National Football League career in San Diego and the following two in Baltimore, Wright recently signed a contract with the Buffalo Bills.
