Titans make a deal with rookie WR Wright

NASHVILLE (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have agreed to a four-year deal with first-round draft pick Kendall Wright.

A person familiar with the deal says it's worth $8.2 million, with a signing bonus of $4.47 million. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the terms had not been announced.

A wide receiver out of Baylor, Wright is expected to play a big role in the Tennessee offense.

Starting receiver Kenny Britt is on the physically unable to perform list with knee problems and also may be facing discipline from the league regarding a DUI arrest in Kentucky earlier this month.

Wright starred at Baylor as the primary target for Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III, and was the 20th pick overall in the draft.
