Britt drawing interest, taking time

Britt AP

In the early weeks of the 2011 season, it appeared that Kenny Britt was destined to become one of the best receivers in the game.  With 136 receiving yards in Week One and 135 in Week Two, Britt was on his way.

And then an ACL tear killed Kenny.  Or at least his career.

A Pacman-style slew of off-field incidents didn’t help matters.  Even though Britt has matured, his game hasn’t recovered.  Lost and forgotten in 2013, Britt caught 11 passes for 96 yards — for the entire season.

He’s now a free agent, and the expectation is that he’ll take his time in selecting a new team.  Per a league source, four or five franchises are interested.

The Redskins reportedly are keen on Kenny.  The coach who drafted him in Tennessee, Jeff Fisher, currently runs the Rams — and needs receivers.

Then there are the Patriots, who have developed a pipeline to Piscataway in recent years, gobbling up former Rutgers players.  Britt played for Bill Belichick’s BFF at Rutgers, which would attract New England’s interest.

It nevertheless remains a buyer’s market for wideouts, which doesn’t bode well for a guy who hasn’t played well in three years.

    It’s a buyer market for WR’s.

    Nice South Park reference.

    Another 49ers reclamation project? This one I wouldn’t mind seeing.

    Patriots need a deep threat….

    I would hope the Panthers are interested, since Marvin McNutt is now our most accomplished wide receiver.

    Giants almost took him in the draft, settled for Hakeem. Wonder if they’re still curious…

    Kenny Britt’s 2013: 11 catches, 13 drops, 6 penalties. Titans fans mock cheered anytime he actually caught the ball. If he was playing in a big market, he would have been written off as a bust already.

    If this guy goes to the right team he will surprise everyone.

    Needs to do a 1 year deal with Denver, then cash in next year, you know he will have the numbers.

    Try not to think about what might have been, ’cause that was then…

    Much as Britt bears responsibility for sabotaging his prospects with the Titans, the vast majority of his off-field issues never felt nearly as scary as most of Pacman’s. Britt was more of a nonviolent juvenile delinquent, most of the time.

    Won’t miss the aggravation he caused in TN, but it wouldn’t shock me to see Britt resurrect his career elsewhere. If he can stay healthy (big if). And grow up, finally. That might be easier if he actually heads away from his Jersey hometown, not closer to it.

    This photo of Kenny Britt indicates he either just dropped a catchable ball or a cop just snuck up from behind.

  15. VondyP says: Mar 13, 2014 7:22 PM

    Last season he would come in for a few plays, drop a few passes, cuss out a few defenders and then the Titans would have to pull him back to the sidelines for fear of penalty.

    Who in their right mind would want that on their team? Kids a joke.

    This guy could be perfect fit for pats. But he is a train wreck!

    As much as I can’t stand Kenny Britt, he does have talent. Any team that gets him will get him on the CHEAP. He’s totally worth taking a chance on because of how cheap he will come & the potential that’s there. I don’t ever think he will live up to his talent but it’s worth a shot for a WR needy team with a strong foundation. The Patriots make WAY too much sense here. But that’s what tells me he won’t go there.
