The Titans haven’t made any secret about their dissatisfaction with wide receiver Kenny Britt’s performance this season.
They’ve benched him during games, dropped him down the depth chart and, according to various reports, have been trying to trade the impending free agent before the trade deadline. Jason La Canfora of CBS reported Sunday that the Titans are seeking a third-round pick or combination of picks in return for Britt’s services, a price that has found no buyers. Per the report, something closer to a fifth-round pick might generate more interest.
The Titans didn’t do much to showcase Britt on Sunday. The former first-round pick played two snaps and caught one ball in the loss to the Seahawks and suggested after the game that the Titans have given up on him.
“Me, I never give up on myself. I guess they did, I am not too sure,” Britt said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “But I am going to work as hard as I have since Day 1. I am going to come back and work as hard as I can until my last day here.”
Wyatt reports that no deal is considered imminent, so Britt’s last day may not be right around the corner. Based on current trends, though, Britt may not be a factor in Tennessee again even if he remains on the roster all year.
