Kendall Wright Upset With Current Role

New, comments

Wright voiced his frustrations with the media after the Titans' loss Sunday.

Kendall Wright made his views on his current offensive role known after the loss to the Bills today.  After recording a three catch performance, Wright unloaded to the media.

Wright received six targets on the day, but fell victim to a very talented Buffalo defense.  The offense sputtered all day, regardless of who Mariota was throwing to.  Wright wasn't done with his comments either.

Wright added, “I haven’t talked to anybody about it. I don’t feel like it’s my place. I feel like I'm supposed to be the number one receiver. I feel like I was supposed to get the targets. But we have a bunch of receivers and we’re all trying to make plays. We’re all fighting to make plays. It’s not just me. Everybody wants the ball. But that’s just how it’s playing out.”

I understand Wright's frustrations, I really do.  He's a competitor and he wants to be as involved in the offense as he possibly can.  However, this is not the way to go about it.  You can't say things like this, especially this early in the year. This could turn the locker room into a toxic place, which is not what you want around your rookie quarterback.

Brighter days are ahead with Marcus Mariota, who took some lumps today against a stiff test.  I know Wright is frustrated, but comments like this are only going to make things worse.
