Wide receiver Kenny Britt’s offseason got off on the wrong foot thanks to his initial unwillingness to participate in a police investigation of a shooting and stabbing, an unwelcome reminder to the Titans of how often Britt finds himself in hot water with law enforcement.
Britt’s also been injured a lot during his four years with the Titans, a combination that makes it hard to commit to him for the long-term as he enters the final year of his contract. That’s led Titans General Manager Ruston Webster to make the determination that a lot of other people have probably made about Britt’s status for the 2013 season.
“We expect all our guys to take care of themselves off the field and do the right things in those situations, plus on the field get themselves ready to play,” Webster said, via Terry McCormick of TitansInsider.com. “Kenny had a tough year just bouncing back from injuries but I think he is on the spot to produce this year.”
You can’t argue with that take on the situation and Britt will have plenty of company on that spot. Webster, coach Mike Munchak and plenty of other members of the Titans organization are going to risk losing their jobs if they don’t step things up in 2013.
