Receiver Kenny Britt remains a free agent. He may not be a free agent for much longer.
The chatter at the league meetings indicates Britt could pick his next team within the next 48 hours. In an interview with PFT, Rams G.M. Les Snead pegged Britt’s chances of landing in St. Louis at “better than 50 percent.”
A first-round pick of the Titans in 2009, Britt’s rookie contract has expired. With the Titans (as G.M. Ruston Webster confirmed to PFT earlier in the day) clearly not in the mix to keep Britt, he needs a new home.
The former Rutgers receiver has visited the Rams, Redskins, Patriots, and Bills. In St. Louis, Britt would be reunited with coach Jeff Fisher, who drafted Britt in Tennessee.
Britt’s play has fallen off in recent years. After a great start to the 2011 season, Britt tore an ACL. He has struggled ever since then to regain the form he was beginning to display.
