Rams to host Kenny Britt

The Rams are hosting a player whom coach Jeff Fisher knows well.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt is visiting with Rams officials on Friday and Saturday.

In some ways, Britt is one of the more interesting players in free agency.

The Titans’ first-round pick in 2009, Britt (6-3, 223) has caught 157 passes for 2,450 yards and 19 TDs in five NFL seasons, the first two of which were spent with Fisher. He doesn’t turn 26 until September, which could suggest he has some good years left. Moreover, at his best earlier in his career, he was a starter-caliber receiver with major playmaking ability.

However, Britt suffered a serious right knee injury three games into the 2011 season, tearing his ACL and MCL as he appeared on his way to a monster season. He returned for the 2012 season and kept a key role, catching 45 passes for 589 yards and four TDs in 14 games (11 starts).

But in 2013, Britt played a far more limited part in the offense, hauling in 11 passes for 96 yards in 12 games (three starts).

A Britt-Fisher reunion in St. Louis could make some sense for both parties. The team could still use a little more receiving help, and Britt will need to go somewhere else in an attempt to rejuvenate his career.

    Personally, I think Britt is done, he hasnt been relevant since he tore that knee, for every Adrian Peterson there is a Greg Oden, huh?? terrible analogy i know.

    Jeff Fischer has always fancied himself the horse whisperer of knuckleheads….pacman jones, courtland finnegan, Albert haynesworth. And he got production out of some of them.

    Britt’s a good upside value. He should sign for about 1/3 of the annual salary that Golden Tait signed for.

    Britt feels like a one year prove it guy….for the rest of his career.

    This title should be renamed to Kenny Britt signs with Rams.

    The Rams really need to get some new blood in the building, especially offensively or they are guerenteed to finish 4th in the division again…they should definitely sign Britt…I think he will play well with a new start. Sincerely, a Niners fan.

    I wonder if the Rams will ever come close to being the GSOT again.

    Don’t hit him between the numbers with the ball if you want him to catch it

    More drops than a dress on Prom night.

    He is not a good receiver. I have watched him over the years. We already have receivers that are better so that tells you how little upside he has. At least the current receivers on the Rams are young and learning and Britt is suppose to be at his prime and that is not good enough.
