Kendall Wright got something he was unfamiliar with when he joined the Tennessee Titans rookie orientation for his first practices as a pro on Friday - a playbook. Wright told TitanInsider.com he never had a playbook in Baylor coach Art Briles' no-huddle spread offense, led by Heisman winner Robert Griffin III, but that signals were used to send plays during games. Wright said that sometimes new plays would be drawn up and then run on the practice field. "At Baylor we didn't huddle. Everything we did was coming off of signals and off the sideline, Wright said. We didn't huddle at Baylor and we didn't have a playbook. If we had a new play or something, we'd just draw it and go out there and run it. Plays had names, but the signals from the sideline were the cue, not the code word name of the play. Overall, Wright estimates that he memorized about 300 plays by the time the variations to the plays were counted in. I think I memorized over 300 plays at Baylor.
We had a lot of plays. We just didn't have a playbook. Coach Briles is a very smart man, Wright said. It was the same system. We were in that system for four years. It's kind of a different kind of learning deal. We'd see it visually and we'd just go run it. It just sticks with us when we keep running it a lot. We'd watch film and go over a lot of it in our meetings that we had. We'd have a lot of plays on the board, and have different signals. Whatever the signal was would tell us the play.
