Kenny Britt open to the idea of a trade today

Most times when a player gets named in trade rumors, he makes a show of saying he doesn’t want to go anywhere.

But Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt seemed to be open to the idea of moving on, if the Titans could find a taker for him before today’s 4 p.m. deadline

“It would be great to stay, as long as they’re giving me opportunities that I should get, especially since I’ve been working hard and doing the right things out there,” Britt said, via John Glennon of the Tennesseean. “Going somewhere else and having a fresh start, it would be good also. But where my mind is right now is just probably staying here because everything is here — my family is here and stuff like that.”

For a guy in a contract year, Britt hasn’t exactly performed. He’s caught eight passes in six games, and lost his starting job and most of the targets that went with it.

He’s played just 22 snaps the last two weeks, and the pressure is getting to him. He was flagged for unnecessary roughness for retaliating with 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown.

“Mainly at the end of the game it was just frustrating, not getting in there and not getting to play enough time,” Britt said. “You know you’ve been doing everything you can to get out there and they’re telling you you’re going to get some more plays than you do.

“Then you get aggravated — when you’re already frustrated — when some guy takes a cheap shot at you. Most guys out there, if they take a cheap shot at you, they’re going to react, and usually the second guy gets caught.”

Britt said no one from the team has mentioned trade talks to him, but he also knows that doesn’t mean much.

    Maybe Kenny needs a little Schiano, I mean, discipline in his life. Greg Schiano was his coach in college and the Bucs just lost Williams to IR.

    .

    The only question is whether Britt ends up in Rutgers North or Rutgers South.

    I wonder if he’s open to the idea of getting what he’s worth in return, which is to say not much…

    OH, he’s “OPEN” to it is he? Well, A) what Choice or Say does he have in the matter, and B) what makes him think any team is interested in him or CARES if he is “OPEN” to it? What a meathead!

    he’s not getting reps b/c he’s not very good. In the history of sports has a trouble maker/ bad attitude player w/ talent been forced out of the line up?

    I’d like to see him gone but I doubt anyone’s giving up anything of value since the Titans can get a higher pick by keeping him & letting him walk as a FA in the offseason.

    Watch the Patriots trade for him and he turns into Jerry Rice.

    Britt needs psychiatric therapy…not a trade. That dude is done.

    Kenny Britt is not a bad player. He has HUGE potential. his problem is all mental. he’s immature, thinks too much and now he has a confidence problem. Look at how he played before he tore his ACL. he would’ve been MVP if he kept that pace up. well MVP is exaggerated, but he would’ve been great. If he gets his confidence up by getting thrown to, I bet he turns things around!

    The same thing could be said with Vince Young.
