Biography

Anthony Lavron Wright (Born February 14, 1976 in Vanceboro, North Carolina) is an NFL quarterback who currently plays for the Cincinnati Bengals, as a back-up quarterback to Carson Palmer.

He attended the University of South Carolina and was signed by the Dallas Cowboys in 2000 as an undrafted free agent, after having made the Pittsburgh Steelers roster in 1999. He has played as a backup for most of his career, but has started many games in most seasons of play. In 2001, when Quincy Carter was demoted after poor performance, Wright became his replacement, but would have a knee injury several weeks later and be replaced by Clint Stoerner.

Dallas coach Dave Campo released Wright from the team at the end of the 2002 offseason following the acquisition of Chad Hutchinson in favor of keeping Stoerner for the third quarterback position, stating that Stoerner was better suited for the job,in light of Wright's ambition to be a starting quarterback. Wright was later signed by the Ravens.

Wright would take over for Kyle Boller at quarterback during the 2003 season when Boller was injured, and posted a 5-2 record, taking the team to the playoffs. However, he was injured for the entirety of the 2004 season. Following another injury to Boller during the first game of the 2005 season, he has been named as the starting quarterback for the Ravens. Prior to the 2005 season, he has a below-average quarterback rating of 62.

With Carson Palmer's former backup QB, Jon Kitna, now signed with the Detroit Lions, Wright signed a one-year deal with the Bengals on Friday, April 21, 2006 [1], even though he'll have to compete with Craig Krenzel and Doug Johnson for the primary backup spot.
