Kendall Wright blames Titans for his drop in productivity

Kendall Wright blames the Titans for his drop in productivity, saying it was a lack of opportunity rather than anything to do with him.

“What motivates me the most is I probably was the best receiver on the Titans roster last year, and I was playing like 10 plays a game,” Wright said, via Kevin Fishbain of Pro Football Weekly. “That’s how it goes.”

Actually, Wright played 309 offensive snaps in 13 games, an average of 23.8 per game, but it was only 29.1 percent of the team’s offensive snaps.

Wright, a first-round pick in 2012, doesn’t have an explanation for why he was phased out of the Titans’ lineup.

“That’s a question I can’t (answer),” Wright said. “Ask them. They’ll feel it after this year.”

Wright signed a one-year deal worth up to $4 million with the Bears in March.

He caught 94 passes for 1,079 yards in 2013 and had six touchdowns in 2014, but he made only 65 catches for 824 yards and six touchdowns combined the past two seasons. He insists, though, that he “hasn’t lost a step like people might think.”

Wright averaged a career-best 14.3 yards per catch last season.

    A legend in his own mind. If he was the best receiver he’d still be there, and no they won’t be feeling his loss at all.

    I hope so Kendall, but most offensive coordinators find ways to get their best player the ball.
    Low risk deal w tremendous upside. If Loggains gets “It” out of him, could be a steal.
    I hope so…..

    Hey Kendall…

    Every time you point a finger, three point back at you.

    “If he was the best receiver he’d still be there”

    Football sadly doesn’t always work that way. There are times when players that are better get phased out because of favoritism or round peg-square hole syndrome.

    In that case, I blame not having bigger muscles for the gym being too far from my house!

    “That’s a question I can’t (answer),” Wright said.

    Umm… you weren’t that good.

    New regime comes in stressing toughness and team first attitude and Kendall misses most of training camp with a sore hamstring.

    Staff and teammates didn’t miss him and they are better off without him.

    If Wright was more consistent then the Titans would have used him more… who’s really to blame?

    Or maybe it was cuz you were lazy and were constantly late to meetings. You may have been the most talented on the roster, but you were a selfish diva who only cared about himself

    Meh. If he turns out to be the player Pace thought he was buying in Eddie Royal (albeit this time at a much lower price), the Bears win. If he continues underachieving, they cut him after this season with little lost. The Bears are taking this approach with a lot of veteran borderline starters and even with their terrible history of personnel management the sheer numbers would dictate at least a couple of their moves will work out.

    My guess is his production will drop again since the Bears are one of the worst offenses in the league. That means this time next year he’ll be blaming someone else again on his drop in production only this time it will be the Bears.
