Kenny Britt won’t appeal one-game suspension

He had three business days to make a decision.  He took less than three hours.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that Titans receiver Kenny Britt will not appeal his one-game suspension for multiple violations of the personal-conduct policy.

Both Britt and the team regard the suspension as light, considering the sheer magnitude of run-ins with the law.

Future incidents undoubtedly will result in an even greater suspension.  Also, if Britt ultimately is convicted of or pleads guilty or no contest to the DUI charges that triggered the one-game suspension, further action could be taken against him.

Britt was expected to participate in only 10-15 snaps during the Week One game against the Patriots.  The suspension will presumably allow him to prepare for more extensive duty the following week, against the Chargers in San Diego.

    Goodell knows that law enforcement will ultimately take care of his Kenny Britt problem.

    If he appeals, the suspension might be increased, not reduced. Smart move!

    APPEAL?! This is like the Artful Dodger not objecting to being called “Slick!” This short vacation is certainly not worth even the paperwork that goes with it. The lesson he has been taught is that his enabling by others is in tact and he need not consider changes in his approach to life and/or personal conduct. Were this his first, or possibly even second “stray off the righteous path,” the one game suspension might be appropriate, however, when one’s infractions reach almost double digits, this “consequence” is ludicrous in its severity.

    He’s coming off double-knee problems. His coach already said he was gonna limit Britt to about 15-20 snaps in the 1st game. No sweat for Britt.

    Now hold on while I go check the waiver-wire for my FF league…
