What did Shawn Jefferson have to say:
“He seems to be one of Marcus Mariota’s guys. He is definitely getting a vibe with Mariota during camp. Kendall has dropped weight, and what Kendall has done this offseason is he got into the playbook and he is really understanding the fine details of the playbook and how important it is for him to be at the right place at the right time. Because we have a young quarterback that is really accurate and will get him the ball.”
It looks like Wright has responded well to criticism from the coaching staff about running correct routes and being at the right spot on every play. From all reports, Marcus Mariota loves going to him, and he is a sneaky threat to get a lot of attention in goal line situations.
I imagine that the Tennessee Titans will have a variety of looks in that area, but if DGB and Justin Hunter can play up to their potential, that would be a lethal trio of receivers in the redzone, especially combined with Delanie Walker.
