Britt still on for Pats visit, then heading to Washington

AP

A once-promising receiver is finding plenty of interest during his first shot at free agency.

Titans receiver Kenny Britt currently has three visits set up, and possibly more to come.  He’s been to St. Louis, where the coach who drafted him (Jeff Fisher) runs the Rams.  Britt continues to have a Monday visit set for the Patriots, who have interest despite re-signing Julian Edelman and adding Brandon LaFell.

Per a league source, the next visit after New England will be to Washington.  The Redskins expressed interest in Britt early in free agency, and the interest currently remains.

Britt is considering other visits in addition to the three listed above.  He has matured considerably off the field in recent years; if he can recapture the skill displayed before he tore an ACL in Week Three of the 2011 season, he could become one of the top bargains in free agency.

  1. this guy should feel lucky to still have a chance in the NFL, if he does sign with pats, he’ll be battling Kenbrell Thompkins for a roster spot

  2. Seems like Carolina should be giving him a call. Their best talent on offense, aside from Cam, appears to be Greg Olson…so…ya…

  3. If he ends up in New England, it won’t be for big money. Pats are loading up on wideouts. If they sign him, he’ll be battling the rookies from last year for a roster spot.

  4. Sounds like it could turn into a bidding war for someone who has the potential to be great. The team more in need of receivers will probably snag him, but they might end up having to spend more than they would like to spend on a player who still has a lot to prove.

  5. Andy Dalton would be considered the best QB in the league if he had some decent talent around him. Wake up Mike Brown!!

  6. It’s hard to tell with the Pats. Their wr signing either blow up or fizzle out.

    I bet signs with NE but IF he can get his act together he could help the Skins.

  7. Can he stay outta trouble? That’s the big question, isn’t it? I vote no, don’t sign him…. I know my vote don’t count, but I’m just sayin’….. Redskins should have had their fill of pot smokers & troubled children by now.

  8. Players come to the Patriots to repair their reputations and for their next contract. They have had success to differing degrees but the opportunity is great. It worked great for Rodney Harrison, Corey Dillion, Antwan Smith, Mark Anderson, Aquib Talib, Randy Moss (before his relapse), but not so good for Chad Ochocinco and Albert Haynsworth.

  9. I wonder if Belichick’s affinity for Rutgers players will lead him to bring in Britt or even lead Britt to feel like the best chance to get his career back on track is with the Patriots.

    For a while Britt looked like he was going to be pretty good and then he just fell off a cliff. If he has anything left he’ll be worth a look.

  10. Only about two or three seasons ago, I felt Kenny Britt was on par with Demaryius Thomas as the two WRs I would most want to build an offense around. Britt has had some spectacular games, and does possess the raw ability to be as great as he wants to be. Age-old problem of a million dollar body stuck with a ten cent brain. He has self-destructed his career but there is still time to pull it out of the dumpster, if his legs are sound and his maturity has improved. I still believe the right coaches can make a star out of him, assuming the surgeries have not changed him beyond repair.

  11. In all honesty, this isn’t even close. Patriots or Redskins? Ummm, not much to contemplate here. Patriots.

  12. The deep receiver spot in New England is wide open for anyone to take

    Britt has as good a shot as anyone to claim a starting position

    If he does, playing opposite Brady and giving the Pats a deep threat, he’s looking at a HUGE payday in 2015

    If he’s smart he signs with NE even for less money than he could get elsewhere

  13. I disagree with the phrase “He has matured considerably off the field in recent years”. It’s been less than 2 years since his DUI arrest July 2012. It’s a shame our legal system let him walk on that one. He should be kicked out of the NFL after being involved with police 9 times. Maybe the 10th one will do it.

  14. This guy has a lot of potential and looked really good at times in the past. I remember one game vs the Eagles…he was killing it. He had 200+ yds and 3 TD’s that game. He basically was unstoppable. But injuries, along with off the field arrests slowed him down. I mean the guy was trying to drive onto a military base drunk!! Last yr was looking really promising, but way too many dropped passes, and holding penalties caused him to drop down the depth chart. But I feel the Titans could’ve gave up on him along time ago but they didn’t. They really wanted to see him succeed. But maybe with a new team and place he will be able to pull it together and become the wideout that he once was projected. I wish you the best Kenny!!

  15. I am sure Pats fans think that Saint Bill will coach him up with a whole bunch of “do your job”
    and The Patriot Way and turn him into a superstar…just like Albert Haynesworth and Ocho Stinko – right?

    Been what – about 10 yrs now since the greatest coach of all time and the greatest owner and organization and qb have won a superbowl ?

    I’d have to say that those SB’s that you won – A DECADE AGO – are more on account of your former kicker Adam V. (and tuck rule/spygate)
    than anything the alleged greatest coach of all time ever did.

  16. Agent: “Hey Kenny, would you rather have Tom Brady or RGFragileEgo throwing to you ?”

    Britt: “How long do you to keep getting paid as my agent ?”

    Agent: “Brady it is”

    As usual,

    The Redskins are as stupid as a bag of rocks. Why go for Britt instead of James Jones? Doesn’t make any sense.
    ——————————————–
    Cuz James Jones is 30 yrs old and Britt is 26…..you’re the bag of rocks. We dont need another wideout 30+.

  18. Jagsfan1, if your only measure of success is winning the superbowl, there’s 31 “losers” every year. However, if you want to compare the Patriots to your sorry team, I think you’d have to agree the fans here have more to be happy about than you losers who have NEVER won a Superbowl. Looks like you won’t in the near future either with the way that franchise is being run. Meanwhile, the Patriots will continue to be contenders every year, because we have the best run franchise in the league. And Bill Belichick? Well he has five rings and been to a few other superbowls too. He’ll be in the Hall one day.

    Envy is perfectly understandable.

    I mean you are talking about the opinions of inferior fans who cheer for inferior football teams and their take on the team that has won more Super Bowls in the last 20 years than any other team in the NFL.

    It’s like looking up at the luxury penthouse from the dumpster in the alley across the street.

  20. Kenny britt is a waste. He’s stupid and worse, he can’t catch. Only way he could help Brady is for Tom to throw it up and Tom catch it and hand it to britt. #uselesswr

  21. If he’s barely good enough for Pats consideration there is no way he has enough talent to make the JETS.

    “With the 9th pick of the 1995 NFL draft the New York Jets select Kyle Brady, Tight End, Penn State….”

    Still giggle about that one almost 20 years later!

  22. You will be hearing a lot of Brady to Britt next year..Belichicks kind of player,talented,troubled with something to prove..

  23. RGme needs to be gone. He is a wanna be diva. They scaled back the offense his rookie year. .graduate to more complexity and poof his genius is gone. Too small, too fragile for the NFL. He is Vick 2.0.

  24. it seems like everyone’s “next visit” is Washington. they just never make it to said visit.

    translation: “if you don’t pay me, i’m going to visit a team that historically pays free agents well.”

    by the way, i don’t hate the redskins. indifferent. just seems like a pattern.

  25. @jagsfan1

    From 1960 to 1993… The Patriots were the Jacksonville Jaguars of the NFL… America’s doormat, we had pathetic ownership, poor fan attendance and for the most part making the playoffs was cause for celebration and when we did … we got crushed.

    Bud honestly … so what are you going for here?
    Your team stinks, your fans … well …don’t even support your franchise… I know your pain… Perhaps, if you keep supporting your team … they will become the NE Patriots… Stay positive!!!

    It will get better someday!!!

  26. He has matured off the field in recent years?

    April 12, 2011, he leads police on a car chase and is charged with 2 misdemeanors and a felony.

    June 7, 2011, Britt takes a plea bargain.

    June 8, 2012, Britt is charged with resisting arrest.

    January 13, 2013, Britt is with a friend when he is stabbed and refused to give a police report on the incident.

    Since the 2009 draft, Britt has been arrested or a person of interest 9 times in off-the-field incidents. That includes at least 1 time every single year of his rookie contract.

    So, what recent years was it that he matured? I must have Rip Van Winkle’d those years?
