Kendall Wright Ties Franchise Mark, Approaching Another

Posted by Gary Glenn on December 26, 2013 – 3:25 pm

Kendall WrightLast week Kendall Wright totaled four receptions against the Jaguars. The second-year wide receiver now has 153 career catches since being picked 20th overall in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Wright’s 2013 totals include 89 receptions, which ranks seventh in the NFL and fifth in the AFC. With one game remaining, he is 12 catches shy of Charlie Hennigan’s single-season franchise record of 101 catches, set in 1964.

While Wright may or may not seize the single-season record from Hennigan, the second-year receiver last week equaled Hennigan for another rare feat. He matched Hennigan by reaching the 150-reception mark in only his 30th career game. Hennigan accomplished the feat in 1961, and since that time, the closest player to tying the mark was Webster Slaughter, who needed 35 games from 1992 to 1993 to get to 150 receptions in an Oilers uniform. Slaughter, unlike Hennigan and Wright, did not begin his career with the Titans/Oilers but joined the club after six seasons in Cleveland.

Wright has played in all 15 games this season after missing one contest as a rookie due to injury. His 153 career receptions have produced 1,655 yards and six touchdowns.

Fewest games needed to reach 150 receptions, franchise history:

30 – Kendall Wright (2012-13)
30 – Charlie Hennigan (1960-61)
35 – Webster Slaughter* (1992-93)

* Slaughter had six previous years of NFL experience with Cleveland prior to his time with the Oilers. Hennigan and Wright played their first two NFL seasons with the Oilers/Titans.

    Man hope we keep Kendal and he stays healthy,talent,and has all the tools,not sure of what happen to Kenny Britt but I thoght he would be better than michael irvin,and Randy Moss,with Kendal and Kenny producing the kinda stats and catches that Kendal makes and Kenny at his best (at one time) along with Washington to add to the mix, this WR core would have been unstoppable,hope it works out for my team and Kendall should win the best hands award in the league

    no one wants to play for the volunteer titans, it’s better to just hope manning stays healthy for the broncos playoff run, because the teams in the playoffs are much better than this one
