Trade Target: David Wright?

Ladies and gentlemen almost a decade ago the Chicago Cubs traded for a young 3B down on his luck/game. He wasn't fielding the ball well, and was never considered a great glove at third anyway. He wasn't hitting as well as he had done at a younger age, and many had ducked out on this young 3B. Upon arrival that young 3B turned his career around and became one of the better 3B in baseball for a 5 or so year stretch. 

There is now another 3B who needs to be freed from the restraints of a broken franchise. He is a little older than Aramis was when the Cubs traded for him, but at 28 isn't so old that 5-6 years old good baseball can't be ahead. I know I said differently about 28 year old Geovany Soto in another thread, but a catcher who hasn't played 110 games in a season since '08 is a different story. Wright's got plenty of baseball at 3B left, and just a couple of years ago was one of the best players in baseball.

Is he a worthy target to fill one of the big corner infield spots for a contending run? Is there hope for him to find his game again?
