    Dolphins rookie Wright cries during practice

    July 26, 2005
    CBS wire reports

    DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins rookie Manuel Wright apparently is having a difficult time adjusting to the NFL, and was in tears Tuesday.

    The 6-foot-6, 290-pound defensive tackle from Southern California -- the only pick in this month's supplemental draft -- broke down during an afternoon practice session.

    Exactly why Wright lost his composure was unclear. Team policy does not allow reporters access to players following a midday interview period.

    "As you well know, young players need to develop the kind of mental toughness and attitude that they need to be professionals," coach Nick Saban said. "So we are trying to help him with that, too, which may be why we need to get on him a little at times."

    Wright was eligible for the supplemental draft because he is three years out of high school. As a sophomore at USC last season, he had 23 tackles, including six for losses, and recovered two fumbles.

    Saban said the rookie has struggled a bit so far with muscle soreness and other issues, and believes Wright is "probably not in as good of shape as he needs to be in."

    Wright was able to finish the workout, Miami's third of this year's training camp.

    "I got on him about what we wanted him to try to do at least today, to try
    and work himself through it, and he responded well to it," Saban said.
