Kenny Britt still evaluating his options

Kenny Britt AP

On Tuesday, Rams G.M. Les Snead expressed optimism regarding his team’s ability to land veteran receiver Kenny Britt, putting the chances at more than 50 percent.  Snead also suggested that a decision could be made within 48 hours.

The 48-hour window has come and gone, and no decision has been made.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Britt is still evaluating his options.  The source says that the Rams are “certainly” in the hunt.

Britt has visited the Rams, Redskins, Patriots, and Bills.  The Panthers also reportedly have interest in Britt, but no visit has occurred.

The 2009 first-round pick of the Titans has overcome a smattering of off-field incidents in recent years.  The biggest question is whether he’ll overcome a dip in production that dates back to the ACL tear he suffered in Week Three of the 2011 season.

    Britt looked like an emerging star before the injury. If he’s healthy again he could be a good weapon, but there are not only the on the field health risks with this guy.

    Ravens philosophy has been “right player, right price.”

    For some, he would definitely fit the right player. He can be a weapon at wideout.

    The latter might be the issue. What kind of financial risk does some team want to take?

    britt would afford the rams the possible luxury of going in another direction with an early draft pick but i will not lose sleep if we do not sign him!!

    He

  4. barsfordays says: Mar 27, 2014 7:22 PM

    He would shine with the Panthers….

  5. jollyjoker2 says: Mar 27, 2014 7:23 PM

    lot of talent …just don’t take him on your fantasy team even as a backup.

  6. astrategyexpert says: Mar 27, 2014 7:25 PM

    Go through a thorough evaluation process. Don’t jump in to any major decision without thinking about all the different aspects.

  7. thevikesarebest says: Mar 27, 2014 7:26 PM

    He’s a perfect packer with all those off field problems and lack of play.

    Welcome to Charlotte … just kidding. Too tall, too fast and … not old enough? Hair too short …?

    Funny how even the most useless players can have their 15 seconds in FA. Hurry up and pick a team so you can fade back into the background as a non-factor.

    Kenny Britt was an emerging star before his knee injury in 2011, but has showed no flashes of stardom since. He struggled catching the ball last year. Even if he did catch it he would bobble the football first. Maybe it was something mental. We’ll see if a change of scenery will help him.

    Bills could really use this guy and bump SJ to the Slot where he should really be playing. I’m a lifelong Bills fan, and have hated watching Stevie play. Woods is a legit #2, runs great intermediate and long routes. Stevie runs great short routes. We need someone to stretch the field as Graham can’t run routes or catch, and Goodwin just can’t run routes. I’d be fine with signing Britt and passing on Evans at 9 if it meant we could get a Mack, Gilbert, etc.

    Kenny Britt’s options are mainly comprised of the following :

    1) Probation Violations/Prison
    2) NFL Suspensions

    quickly followed by
    3) Bankruptcy
    4) Joining Concussion Lawsuits
    5) Suing former agents

    So he’s still at VY’s place waiting for advice? Or is he in Colorado?

  14. woodfarmer1 says: Mar 27, 2014 8:32 PM

    That’s the look with that smile he has when dropping easy catches

  15. campcouch says: Mar 27, 2014 8:47 PM

    If the Rams, Redskins, Patriots, Panthers and Bills are the only teams offering you a steak dinner,you’ve vastly over valued yourself bro.

  16. redskinspatronum says: Mar 27, 2014 8:55 PM

    Hope the skins don’t win this one. Doesn’t matter how talented he is. He can’t play a full season.

  17. zachebers says: Mar 27, 2014 8:56 PM

    Britt could be a good upside, depth addition for my St. Louis Rams.
    Honestly, I am not crazy about Britt, but he won’t cost much so it could be worth a signing.
    Either way, he won’t immediately step in as the alpha dog aka clear cut #1 WR.
    However, there is somebody out there who could be, Sammy number 2 overall pick baby!!!

  18. clownsfan says: Mar 27, 2014 9:09 PM

    When Kenny says he’s “evaluating his options” it means he’s thinkin’ “should I get the half-oz or just splurge on the whole oz?” Decisions decisions.

  19. rams757 says: Mar 27, 2014 9:15 PM

    He think he Calvin Johnson or somebody..?

    Pick a damn team.

  20. thegreatgabbert says: Mar 27, 2014 9:18 PM

    The options are “take it” or “leave it”.

  21. rams757 says: Mar 27, 2014 9:25 PM

    Waiting out his what.!?

    He already know his options.. Pick a damn team and move on.

  22. grogansheroes says: Mar 27, 2014 9:46 PM

    Headline should read, “No one wants to give Kenny Britt anything more than a veteran minimum.”

  23. doe22us says: Mar 27, 2014 9:49 PM

    They are all probably offering him the same 1 yr contract..

  24. bonerznpudz says: Mar 27, 2014 9:55 PM

    Awww man!

  25. overdrawnagain says: Mar 27, 2014 9:56 PM

    How bad is this for the Rams? this guy hasn’t produced in over 3yrs, he would easily be the main guy amongst the Rams receivers, and Fisher embraces players with “punk” attitudes who don’t perform….and Kenny would still rather go elsewhere

  26. rcali says: Mar 27, 2014 10:01 PM

    Some team wasn’t paying attention and he’ll soon be their problem.

  27. titansbro says: Mar 27, 2014 11:19 PM

    Amazing the market for this guy seems to be so big. I thought some team would get him on the way cheap. He’s oozing with talent, but is a malcontent & always injured. He’s worth it on a short term low money prove if deal but it seems he may get more than that. Crazy.

  28. kansacity88 says: Mar 28, 2014 1:07 AM

    He needs to drop some braces on those teeth!

  29. VondyP says: Mar 28, 2014 1:25 AM

    who cares, he drops every pass thrown his way, if you want him on your team, please take him. even brady cant fix that

  30. rohrerj10 says: Mar 28, 2014 3:09 AM

    HAHAHAHAHA at that Jagsfan comment

  31. razzlejag says: Mar 28, 2014 6:48 AM

    The Patriots, obviously, will not touch this guy after the Aaron Hernandez mess. Seems like the Panthers could use him with an incentive laden deal which includes behavioral clauses.

  32. jimfix says: Mar 28, 2014 9:14 AM

    we are asking if this guy can come back from an injury that by the time the season starts will have happened almost four years ago? add in that he hasn’t played because of off the field issues and when he has played he hasn’t been very good on a bad team.

    he’s done. i don’t know why anyone would want him, unless they are desperate.

  33. ireadpftforthecomments says: Mar 28, 2014 9:17 AM

    Bob Kraft has already come out and said the Patriots aren’t signing him.

    They can be removed from the list.

  34. bencoates57 says: Mar 28, 2014 9:24 AM

    Yes, we’re all holding our breath there, smile boy

  35. truninerfan49 says: Mar 28, 2014 10:01 AM

    It is hard to choose between the CFL and the Arena league

  36. bleedgrn76 says: Mar 28, 2014 10:31 AM

    Still evaluating his options? LOL….what options? Seriously nobody wants this chump!!

  37. baddegg says: Mar 28, 2014 11:31 AM

    Is he going to have a televised special to announce his decision like LeBron? Geeze.

  38. theclink12 says: Mar 28, 2014 11:38 AM

    “Kenny Britt still evaluating his options”

    Translation: nobody really wants him because they know he isn’t that good.

  39. footballfather says: Mar 28, 2014 12:22 PM

    He’s “still evaluating his options,” huh? Is being a mature adult still one of them?

  40. fantom21 says: Mar 28, 2014 1:20 PM

    Better hurry up, DeSean Jackson just hit the market
