Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright has seen his production decline a great deal from a season ago. After putting up 94 receptions for nearly 1,100 yards last year, the former first-round pick has tallied just 43 receptions through 10 games this season.
But don’t expect Wright to pull a Dez Bryant and lose it on the field during the game (via The Tennessean).
All I can do is go to work and do what the coaches ask me,” he said. “It’s not like I am go to go Dez Bryant and throw a couple of tantrums and ask for the ball. If I don’t get it, I don’t get it. Yeah, that is part of the frustration, but I’ll get over it.
It surely is nice to know that Wright isn’t worried about his lack of production. And anyone who has watched the Titans play this season knows full well that his dip in receptions is mostly due to what has been substandard quarterback play.
As it relates to Bryant, no one could look at Wright and compare the two. Tennessee’s leading receiver since joining the team in 2012 has been pretty darn good team player. We haven’t heard a lot of chirping about a lack of red-zone opportunities and it seems he’s more upset about the team’s 2-8 start to the season.
Some other unnamed receivers might want to take notes here.
