Put him in coach, he’s come a long way!
Buffalo Bills cornerback Shareece Wright made an expensive, eight-hour Uber trip to New York on Monday just to ensure his presence at a voluntary team practice, according to ESPN.
Wright shared a photo of his receipt to Twitter, which revealed the trip from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport to the team’s facility in upstate New York was around 550 miles, and cost him $632.08.
A man identified by ESPN as a rep for Wright claimed that the athlete also tipped $300 to his driver, making the grand total of his transportation to practice over $900.
It’s unclear why Wright chose to take Uber, but his trip’s starting location lead some to believe it was a canceled flight.
