Professional career[edit]

New York Giants[edit]

Drafted by the Giants, Wright did not make it past final cuts for the 2009 season.

First stint with Vikings[edit]

Picked up as a free agent after failing to make the Giants, Wright was signed to the Vikings Practice Squad after the 2009 season got underway. Wright was released by the Vikings as part of final cuts on September 4, 2010 prior to the beginning of the 2010 NFL season.

Cleveland Browns[edit]

The Browns signed Wright to their practice squad before deleting him in the latter half of the 2010 season.

Second Stint With Vikings[edit]

Wright was once again signed to the Vikings Practice Squad late in the season due to the promotion of Marcus Sherels to make up for injuries in their secondary. Wright's practice team contract expired and was not renewed at the end of the 2010 season. DeAndre Wright is now an unrestricted free agent.
