Brock Wright, TE (DET)

Scores on trick play

Wright caught two of two targets for 51 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 37-30 win over Green Bay.

Wright returned from a week off due to COVID protocols and again logged over 70 percent of the offensive snaps while serving as a top tight end in the absence of T.J. Hockenson (finger). While most of his production came on a flea flicker in the third quarter when the tight end sneaked behind the defense for a 36-yard touchdown, the Notre Dame product is continuing to show that he can be a little more than a blocker at the pro level. In total, he will finish the 2021 campaign with 12 catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns on 17 targets despite not seeing regular action until the second half of the year. Considering he will now be an exclusive-rights free agent at the end of the year, Wright is a strong candidate to return to Detroit in 2022 as a depth option behind Hockenson.
