TAMPA -

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Eric Wright filed a grievance against the teamís decision to void the guarantee on his $7.75 million salary for 2013.

A ruling could come as soon as today, with free agency to begin at 4 p.m.

The void went into effect after Wright was suspended four games for violating the leagueís policy on performance enhancing substances. Wright said he used Adderall, which is banned without a prescription approved by the league.

The Bucs declined to comment on the grievance.
