Bucs Q&A: What are the differences among NFL team physicals?

Q: What are the differences between the physicals for various NFL teams? A couple weeks ago Eric Wright was cut because he was sent back to the Bucs after failing his 49rs physical.

A: Team physicals can be a little subjective in the NFL. An issue that will cause one team to fail a player may not be deemed an issue at all by another. Keep in mind that a team does not have to provide a reason for failing a player on a physical and in the case of the 49ers they did not provide an answer for failing Wright. So why did Eric Wright not pass the 49ers physical? Hard to know. Only the 49ers or Eric Wright can speak to that.
