Tennessee Titans Football

Hasselbeck: Addition of Wright will Help Titans Offense

Posted by Gary Glenn on April 30, 2012 – 5:15 pm

Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck isn’t all that familiar with his new teammate — wide receiver Kendall Wright out of Baylor. But he knows adding another explosive weapon can only help Tennessee’s offense in 2012.

“When you defend a team knowing they have multiple guys that can be inside, outside, in the slot — whether it be Kenny (Britt), Nate (Washington), Hawk (Lavelle Hawkins), Damian (Williams) or whoever, I think it just gives us more leeway,” Hasselbeck said shortly after his arrival on Monday to a Titans Caravan stop in White House, Tenn. “It should help the passing game and the running game. We’ll find out.”

Despite some draft analysts showing concern the Titans didn’t take a defensive player with the 20th overall pick, Hasselbeck said he’s learned over the years to never be surprised by what might happen on draft day.

“Just knowing how the draft really goes, you hear GMs and scouts say ‘we just take the best available on our boards,’ so I’m never surprised. Now if they would have drafted a quarterback, I probably would have been surprised,” he joked.

“I don’t know a whole lot about the kid we drafted in the first round, but from what I’ve heard he’s very explosive with the ball in his hands,” Hasselbeck said. “Obviously, Baylor had kind of a resurgence with the explosion they had on offense this year. What we do know is that we have guys that are explosive and can make plays and help your fantasy football team out.”

    I thank they have a playoff shot.If everyone stays healthy.But CJ and Ringer has to get the yards this year.They cannot be last in the NFL.That will keep the pressure off the QB.And the DEF is a big question mark.There is a lot of new faces.There is a lot of 2nd and 3rd stings from last year.And the rookies you dont know nothing about into they play some games.Sure they were good in college but the NFL is whole lot different.But I thank they do well.I guess will see after 10-12 games then you can judged about a playoff team.But they just missed the playoffs last year.Maybe we got the team this year.

    @ Jay PittsburgTX – We can’t wait to unleash that monster on the NFL world bro!!! I’m think Wright has a good shot at being the most productive rookie WR of this draft class. Michael Floyd could have a shot since he’ll be playiong opposite Larry Fitzgerald, Wright will be playing opposite Kenny Britt, but I have a feeling that professionally speaking, Justin Blackmon will shrivel up and die in Jacksonville.

    YA YOU SAW REACTION GOING TO JAGS ,I THINK YOUR RIGHT . OUR RUNNING GAME WILL BE BACK THIS YEAR . FULL OFF SEASON, YEAR UNDER NEW COACH’S NOT TO MENTION A PISSED OFF CJ @ # 100 AND A NASTY O-LINE. I LIKE THE PICK THE MORE I SEE OF WRIGHT. HE KNOWS WHAT TO DO AFTER THE CATCH.PROGRESS!!! TITANTUDE DEFENSE

    GREAT draft again , Never think much of the TV talk shows opinon most of thier picks are based on TV ratings ! Locker, Cj2k and Britt/Wright should make the TITANS a scoring machine for many years ahead . Can’t leave out the whole Defence got a real good feeling !!!!

    Are they going to run Wright on the outside? He is pretty small 5-10 under 200lb… sounds like a slot receiver to me.
