Kendall Wright Likes Kenny Britt’s Return, Justin Hunter’s Arrival

Kendall Wright said Tuesday that Titans receivers have displayed an intense focus on the field and in their meeting rooms during the offseason workout program.

Tennessee is in Week 5 of its nine-week program. The Titans have reached the part where they are allowed to meet with coaches inside Baptist Sports Park and receive on-field instruction during workouts and drills.

Wright, a first-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, said he’s enjoyed working with Nate Washington, Damian Williams, a healthy Marc Mariani, free agent Kevin Walter and 2013 second-round draft pick Justin Hunter.

The best part, however, may be the way 2009 first-rounder Kenny Britt has returned to action more than a year removed from tearing his ACL and MCL in the third game of 2011.

“Oh yeah, he looks way different,” Wright said. “If you’re out there watching him, you can tell. He’s a whole different Kenny. He took his offseason serious and went and got his knee better.”

Britt underwent multiple surgeries before the 2012 season but started 11 of 14 games in 2012. He recorded 45 catches for 589 yards and had moments where he showed the big-play potential that tormented defensive backs prior to his injury.

Wright thinks Britt and Hunter will provide the Titans with vertical threats in the passing game that will create space for other players.

“Justin is real good from what I’ve seen so far,” Wright said. “He’s only going to get better if he keeps listening to the older guys like Nate, Kenny, Damian, Marc and Kevin. If he keeps listening to those guys and pays attention to what they say, he’ll be even better.”

    During the Jeff Fisher era, the Titans always used a running back coach, Fred Greaves, to coach the WRs. Finally, the Titans are using a real WR coach, Shawn Jefferson, to teach everyone how to take it to the next level on the field. This will be an explosive offense this year.

    i haven’t been this excited about a Titans team since I lost faith in Vince Young. i really hope Jake steps up this year. everything else is in place. Munchak has really done a great job of bringing in players to push and compete with some of the vets who have takin a step back. i hope Tommie Campell reads this because corner is our biggest hole and he has the potential to fix that, while pushing McCourty to step up on the other side. Now it’s up to Webster to keep this young team together.

    If Kenny Britt can stay healthy and out of trouble, we will have the most deadly WR trio in the NFL. With Britt, Wright, Hunter and our reloaded O line, we should be SERIOUS contenders. Can the season PLEASE get started already? LOL

    Locker’s definitely got the weapons, but can he use them effectively?…I think the offense is going to be productive; they’re not gonna ask Locker to do too much–think Steve McNair ’99-’01 with way better receivers. My big question is will we have a good enough defense to cushion a run first offense?

    there is noooo way the 99-01 recievers were better than this group of recievers.it may not be this year but within 2 years maybe the best receiving group in the history of football. Kenny britt has that ability to be a very special player and so does Kendall wright and now im extremely impressed with Justin hunter.just watch.if jake locker cant hit them Fitzpatrick can.

    I certainly wasn’t writing the 99-01 receivers were better–I was making the point that they weren’t better; that this current offense would resemble McNair’s offense and the way he ran the offense but in the here and now we’ve got much better receivers. This is the first year we’ve had good receivers across the board since this organizations has been in Nashville.
