NFL Player Shareece Wright Spends $932 on Uber Ride to Practice

One of the biggest perks of being an NFL player is having more disposable income than the average person. In June 2017, former Buffalo Bills cornerback Shareece Wright took full advantage of this after his flight was canceled when he took an Uber from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport to the team’s practice facility in Orchard Park, New York. That’s about a 550-mile and over eight-hour trip.

Wright ended up spending $932.08 after tipping $300 on top of his $632.08 bill.

During the journey, Wright connected with his driver, Hadi Abdollahian on a personal level, who was a refugee that fled violence in his home country.

Hopefully, the Bills expense transportation.
