Kendall Wright, a former 2013 first-round draft pick and impending free agent, had choice words to say following his last game as a Tennessee Titan.
“I saw the 2017 Tennessee Titans, and I am not a part of the 2017 Tennessee Titans,” Wright said Monday, via the team’s official website. “It is what it is. I respect everybody in the building.
“But they have something good here, and I think they’ll win a lot of games. For me, I feel like it is time for me to grind.”
Wright went on to further say that he finally feels “free,” and that he’s eager to make a team fall in love with him and what he knows he can do.
Wright, dealing with a lingering hamstring injury and also having cycled through multiple offensive coordinators in his time in Nashville, was very cynical of how his time in a Titan uniform played out.
“I guess I didn’t fit the many systems that came through,” Wright offered, per ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky.
Wright, who thrived on freelancing as a top target, had been relegated to a backup role on a team that rarely used more than two wide receivers at a time.
