Kendall Wright emphatically closes door on return to the Titans

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’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.
