Unlike yesterday, today brings some good news to the Titans. They have reportedly agreed to terms with first-round selection wide receiver Kendall Wright.
The primary holdup on Wright’s deal was likely the amount of fourth-year guarantee, but that hurdle and any others have apparently been overcome. The CBA’s participation rules mean he likely won’t be a full participant in training camp until Saturday, but barring an unexpected snag he’ll be there for Thursday’s practice after the Titans are off Wednesday on a limited basis. We’re still waiting on full details of the contract, but multiple media reports indicate the Titans gave Wright a higher fourth-year guarantee than the previous pick, Bears DE Shea McClellin received, and the second- and third-year money is partially in the form of bonuses.
It was mildly disappointing not to see Wright available for the full duration of camp, and I was starting to get mildly concerned about the practice time he missed. Now that he’s signed and it’s not even August yet, plus that he participated in offseason workouts, he should have enough time to work on the playbook, develop a rapport with Matt Hasselbeck and/or Jake Locker, and get himself ready to be the kind of contributor I think both the Titans and I are anticipating he’ll be this year.
