Wright signed a one-year deal worth up to $4 million Saturday with the Bears, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wright is the latest wide receiver to sign with the Bears, whose receiving corps is currently being revamped after the departure of Alshon Jeffery to the Eagles. Wright is coming off a poor season in Tennessee where he essentially played himself out of the lineup and finished with a career-low 29 catches for 216 yards and three touchdowns. Wright will have the opportunity early on to prove he's a capable wide receiver while competing with newcomer Markus Wheaton for a shot at potentially being the team's third wideout behind Cameron Meredith and Kevin White (fibula).

Wright is listed as inactive Sunday against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Wright has accumulated just 27 offensive snaps in back-to-back weeks, catching a combined four passes for 40 yards over two contests against Kansas City and Jacksonville. It won't be the first time Wright has been inactive for non-injury related reasons this season, leaving his any good standing with coach Mike Mularkey in question heading into 2017. In his stead, Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe will be in line for their regular roles, while Harry Douglas could see some more action in three wide receiver sets.

Wright had two catches for 21 yards on four targets Saturday in Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

Both of Wright's receptions came after Matt Cassel replaced injured starter Marcus Mariota (fibula) under center in the second half. The slot receiver has been a non-factor since the bye, with just four catches for 40 yards over the past three weeks.

Wright caught both of his targets for 19 yards Sunday in Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Wright was benched for Week 14 against the Broncos, and didn't impress much in his return to the lineup. Fellow wideout Rishard Matthews and tight end Delanie Walker are the only options quarterback Marcus Mariota trusts with consistent targets on a weekly basis. Wright has compiled just 27 receptions for 395 yards while working as more of a bit player during an injury-plagued campaign.

Wright (coach's decision) will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wright's productivity had already been on the downswing after he failed to record a reception on his lone target in the team's last game Nov. 27 against the Bears, but he'll be excluded from the game plan entirely this week after missing team meetings Saturday, according to Wyatt. The absence of Wright could end up translating to a more extensive role for Harry Douglas, who caught two passes for 60 yards in the game against the Bears.

Wright failed to come down with his lone target Sunday in Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Wright was a non-factor after topping 50 yards in three of his previous four games. The slot receiver has eclipsed four catches only once this season, and his lack of volume makes it hard to rely on Wright for consistent production.

Wright secured four of six targets for 52 yards Sunday in Indianapolis.

EDGE Analysis

Wright tied for third on the team in targets behind Rishard Matthews (13) and Tajae Sharpe (seven). The slot receiver played only 38 of 71 snaps (54 percent) on offense, and his lack of consistent usage should continue to cap Wright's value the rest of the way.

Wright caught two of three targets for eight yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 47-5 win over the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Wright did a great job stretching for the pylon on his six-yard touchdown in the third quarter. The slot receiver gets a few opportunities every week, but quarterback Marcus Mariota spreads the ball around too much for Wright to consistently find pay dirt.

Wright caught two of five targets for a team-leading 64 yards Sunday in San Diego.

EDGE Analysis

Wright finished with one more yard than Rishard Matthews, but the fellow wide receiver outpaced him in catches (five), targets (10) and touchdowns (two). The slot receiver once again showed off his big-play ability by hauling in a 48-yard reception, but his lack of volume means he has to rely on long gains to maintain value.

Head coach Mike Mularkey is pleased with the way Wright's playing time is being handled, ESPN's Paul Kuharsky reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wright missed Tennessee's first three games due to a hamstring injury and has played just under 40 percent of the team's offensive plays since returning. While Wright went for 84 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's win over the Jaguars, which marked his second big game over the Titans' last three tilts, coach Mike Mularkey is satisfied with his role for the time being. That means Rishard Mathews and Tajae Sharpe should continue in their usual allotment of snaps, with Wright mixing in from his favored slot position, where he's been increasingly effective lately.
