NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Kendall Wright is on the move for the Tennessee Titans with coach Ken Whisenhunt calling the plays.
The slithery receiver has worked so much from the slot his first two seasons in Tennessee that his speed has been overlooked.
Clocked running a 4.6-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, Wright disputes that number. He says his best recorded time is 4.36, and he’s confident if given a chance to sprint against anyone running a 4.4 or 4.3. He claims he’s just as fast as teammate Justin Hunter.
Wright says this season he plans on breaking more tackles while trying to score and showing off his speed.
