Despite being a healthy inactive for multiple games, putting up a career-low 29 catches, and not being offered a new contract, Wright believes he was the Titans’ best pass-catcher in 2016.
Now a member of the Chicago Bears, he says that belief is fueling him to succeed.
“What motivates me the most is I probably was the best receiver on the Titans’ roster last year and I was playing like 10 plays a game,” Wright said following Tuesday’s minicamp practice, according to Kevin Fishbain of Pro Football Weekly. “That’s how it goes.”
When asked to explain why he wasn’t featured more prominently, Wright directed reporters to the Titans.
“That’s a question I can’t (answer),” he said. “Ask them. They’ll feel it after this year.”
Wright, the Titans’ first-round pick in 2012, may have to ask for extra playing time if he wants to exact revenge against his former team, as the Bears only play the Titans in the preseason this year.
