Here's the statement Bears safety Major Wright released through his agent, Mitch Frankel.


"I want to set the record straight in reference to news reports on my involvement at an event that took place on May 20 in Miami, Fla., at Club Play. I authorized my name and likeness to be used in conjunction with other NFL players at a party I believed to be hosted by other NFL players. I had no knowledge and never would have given authority for my name or likeness to be associated with Exotica Expo 2011. I am deeply disappointed that my name and likeness was manipulated by the promoters of this event. The use of my picture in a Chicago Bear uniform was never discussed or approved. It is unfortunate that this incident has occurred and I would like to let the Bears organization, our fans, my teammates, family and friends know that I am truly sorry. I have learned a valuable lesson and will use more prudent judgement with people I associated myself with in the future."
