Moss was asked to comment on Britt’s habit of finding himself in off-field trouble, and Moss declined to comment on that. But Moss did say he thinks Britt can be one of the best receivers in the league if he can keep all of the other stuff from holding him back.
“I can’t really speak about it because I have been into trouble off the field myself,” Moss said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “But from what I have seen Kenny Britt do, man, if he gets his mind right, Kenny Britt can get up in elite class very quickly. I am a big fan of his. Kenny Britt is a young receiver who can get in that A.J. Green, Julio Jones mix if he wants to, and does the things to make it happen. But his is more mental than it is physical. I hope it works out for him because he is quite a talent. That guy could be special.”
Through four years of his career, however, Britt hasn’t shown that he can be special. Although he has shown flashes of great talent, he’s never caught more than 45 passes in a season, or gained more than 775 yards. At age 24 there’s still time for Britt to prove he can be special, but so far in his career he’s made more headlines off the field than on it. That’s something no one ever said about Moss.
