Titans receiver Kenny Britt, who had an eventful offseason for all the wrong reasons, possibly has made the preseason even more eventful for his coaching staff.
Despite a clear prohibition from the league office against teams contacting players during the lockout, Britt told 104.5 the Zone’s 3 Hour Lunch in Nashville that he regularly heard from Titans receivers coach Dave Ragone.
The hosts didn’t even have to pose the question directly. Instead, they simply asked whether Britt became nervous when his phone rang during the offseason, given that he possibly will be suspended for multiple brushes with the law since the 2010 season ended.
“No, not at all,” Britt said, “because I don’t answer no phone calls that I don’t know the area code. You can even ask my Coach [Raggone] about that, he’s been calling me all summer long. I told him, he’s got to send me a text before I’ll answer it.”
In the Titans’ defense, we suspect that every team at some point or another broke the no-contact rule. But every other player and coach has been discreet.
