Titans receiver Kenny Britt was the NFL’s biggest off-field troublemaker during the offseason, and his multiple run-ins with the law have one teammate saying it’s time for Britt to shape up.
“Kenny knows what he needs to do,” Titans guard Jake Scott said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “He needs to grow up. He has done some dumb things, but he’ll get it figured out.”
For his part, Britt says he is growing up.
“Wrong place, wrong time, you could say that’s that,” Britt said. “I am maturing, [becoming] a young man and going through changes.”
But while Britt says he’s maturing, he hasn’t reached the point where he’s willing to address his off-field trouble head-on. Britt bristled at questions from reporters about his legal troubles.
“The past is the past,” Britt said. “Let’s focus on what’s ahead, man. I’m not worried about all that stuff.”
As reporters continued to ask, Britt continued to evade.
“We are not going to talk about none of that, boss,” Britt said. “You keep going back into the past. We are trying to go into the future.”
Whether Britt has much of a future will depend on whether he follows Scott’s advice and grows up.
