New Buffalo Bills cornerback Shareece Wright waited and waited at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport on Monday.
He got tired of waiting.
The seven-year NFL veteran wanted to make it to Buffalo in time for Monday’s organized team activities.
What did he do?
The San Bernardino native called an Uber to travel from Chicago to Orchard Park, N.Y. Cost: $632.08, not including a $300 tip. In total, $932.08.
Length of the trip: 550 miles in eight hours.
That’s dedication when it’s voluntary OTAs.
No clue if Wright’s flight was canceled, but according to ESPN’s Mike Rodak, Uber is not available in Buffalo until June 29. Wright must’ve appreciated the ride: He rated driver Winny (Hadi) five stars.
Wright started his NFL career with San Diego in 2011 out of USC. He spent four seasons with the Chargers before playing the next two with the Baltimore Ravens.
