At his peak, Kendall Wright was a top NFL receiver, pulling in 94 catches for 1,079 yards in 2013.
He’s moved steadily downhill since then and the 20th pick of the 2012 draft was a healthy scratch for the Tennessee Titans in their finale, which he seems certain was his last game with the franchise.
His 29 catches ranked fifth on the team and were the fewest of his career.
The current Titans regime saw Wright as a slot receiver, but the team used three wide receivers on fewer snaps than any team in the NFL. The story pointed out Wright is likeable guy who can make some electric plays as he did for the Titans in the wins over the Browns and Jaguars. But he can be complicated and it all came to seem like too much work to make things go with him heavily involved.

Kendall Wright is tired of answering the questions, and tired of watching from the sideline.
The Titans receiver is ready to return to action.
It sounds like this could be the week.
“I think there's no limitations on (Kendall) come Wednesday,’’ Titans coach Mike Mularkey said on Monday.
Wright hasn't played because of a hamstring injury from early in camp. The story said he was a star of the offseason. He's expected to work out of the slot which should give a boost to the struggling passing game.

Wright has missed the entire preseason with a left hamstring injury that he re-injured Monday during his first practice back. Afterward, he said he planned to be ready to play in the season opener Sept. 11 against the Vikings.
“It’s not in doubt,” Wright said. “I think I’ll be able to play in it.”
