Kendall Wright’s deal with Titans is done

Tuesday started with Kendall Wright on the verge of a finalized contract with the Titans and it will end with him celebrating a deal.

Multiple sources are reporting that Wright and the Titans have agreed to terms on a four-year contract that is worth in the neighborhood of $8.2 million. We don’t have all the details of the contract regarding guarantees and offsets, but Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com reports that the Titans “made significant moves” to get the deal done right now. It’s not surprising that they felt some pressure to get Wright done sooner rather than later.

With Kenny Britt’s status uncertain, the Titans need Wright to settle in across from Nate Washington to keep their offense moving. Regardless of who is at quarterback, the Titans want to be aggressive throwing the ball this season and Wright is a big part of their plan on that front.

Wright, the 20th overall pick in April, has missed three days of training camp already with the team set to practice for the fourth time on Tuesday afternoon. Wright might not be able to work in that practice, but there are plenty of practices to come for a player who needs to get up to speed as soon as possible. If Wright proves to be a quick study, anything the Titans get from Britt will be a bonus.

The deal leaves Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon as the only remaining unsigned first-round pick

    They need all the WR help they can get since their “star” RB talks as much as rex ryan does and produces at around the same ratio.

    I am a diehard titans fan and I don’t recall Chris Johnson predicting superbowls and refusing to kiss rings.

    I am a diehard Titans fan and fan follower of the team since the 1978 Houston Oilers. I haven’t seen many wide receiver high draft picks pan out for the team over the years. I hope and pray this pick of Kendall Wright turns out to be a good quality pick at Wide Receiver. There seems to be more busts than anything at that position. Today is my birthday, so this is a great gift to see my team FINALLY sign their 1st round pick 3 days into training camp. Kendall Wright better play like he did in college, because the Titans sure need it! With the last 1st round wide receiver for the Titans Kenny Britt always either injured or in trouble with the law.
