Buffalo Bills: Free agent wide receivers who could help right away
The former first-round pick of the Titans, Wright has quietly had a solid career since being drafted in 2012. Wright was with Tennessee from 2012-16 before signing on with the Chicago Bears last season. He was with Minnesota during training camp before being released.
Wright was once the top target in Tennessee and posted his best season in year two of his NFL tenure. He hauled in 94 catches for 1,079 yards and two touchdowns. However, in 2014, Wright set a career high with six touchdowns.
Last season with the Bears, Wright was the team’s top pass catching option amongst a poor group of receivers. He made 59 catches for 614 yards and one touchdown. He went through a similar situation as the Bills are going through as Mitchell Trubisky, a then rookie, was getting acclimated with NFL action.
At 5-foot-10 and 185 pounds, Wright symbolizes more of what the team had in fellow Baylor alum Corey Coleman. Wright isn’t quite as fast, but his hands and route running are more polished.
It appears as Wright is another player that could be had for cheap as he has been brought in by Arizona and New England, but neither has signed the former No. 20 overall pick. The talent, experience and previous production are all there for Wright. He can play in the slot or on the outside and would be the most experienced receiver on the roster.
