Titans Moving Away From Run-First Offense?

Apr 30, 2012 9:47 AM EST

The Titans selected wide receiver Kendall Wright with their first pick last week, perhaps suggesting that the team will feature the pass more in 2012.

Chris Johnson had a disappointing 2011 season after setting the league on fire the previous year.

Tennessee is now a team that wants to throw the football.

"I think [Wright] reminds me of Drew Hill and Ernest Givins that we had back in the run-and-shoot days in Houston," offensive coordinator Chris Palmer said. "He's a guy that also can play outside. He closes the cushion between himself and the defensive back very, very quickly.

"I think he's a guy that will allow us to move him around and complement our other receivers and give us a chance to be more explosive offensively."
