Titans WR Kendall Wright loses 14 pounds to improve play

Bob Levey

Workouts and an improved diet have Wright in better shape heading into 2013.

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright is utilizing the offseason to get himself in better playing shape. The second-year pro weighs 187 pounds now, which is 14 pounds lighter than what he weighed when he first arrived at Tennessee. Some of the loss has to do with his workout regimen, but Wright said in a recent interview with the Titans' official website that changing his diet was also a crucial factor.

"I just started taking care of my body and eating right," Wright said. "I wasn't eating right at all. I was eating a lot of junk food because that's what I like and that's what I'd buy, but I cut down on that and just started eating right."

Following his rookie season, Wright returned to Baylor, his alma mater, where he worked out five days a week under the supervision of assistant athletic director for athletic performance Kaz Kazadi. The workout plan included a lot of running.

Despite the extra weight Wright carried around last season, he was still productive; he finished his rookie year with 64 receptions for 626 yards and four touchdowns.
