Kenny Britt claims a starting spot on first St. Louis depth chart

AP

Lost and forgotten in a contract year that made Hakeem Nicks look like Randy Moss circa 2007, receiver Kenny Britt left the Titans in the offseason for a reunion with Jeff Fisher.

So far, so good.

Britt appears as a starter on the team’s first depth chart of camp, across from Tavon Austin and ahead of Brian Quick.

A first-round pick in 2009, Britt was breaking out in 2011 before a Week Three torn ACL threw his career off course even more than a rash of early-career run-ins with the law.  Last year, he caught 11 passes for 96 yards in 12 appearances and three starts.

Elsewhere, Zac Stacy is listed as the top running back.  Third-round rookie Tre Mason is listed at the top of the fourth-string-at-best “other” category.

Defensively, seventh-round rookie Michael Sam appears as the third-string right defensive end, behind Robert Quinn and Eugene Sims.  First-round defensive tackle Aaron Donald shows up on the second team, behind Michael Brockers.

  1. Strictly on paper, the Rams are putting together quite a talented team. Can that translate to wins in a brutally tough division? Stay tuned.

    I do know that if I were the Seahawks — and even more so the Niners — I wouldn’t go to sleep on these guys.

  2. Dude can ball when his head is on straight. Keep him out of Jersey; his lack of intelligence and/or ‘friends’ land him in trouble there.

  3. Even if the Seahawks and Niners are awake, the Rams still can’t let them feel like it’s a walk in the park. What they really need to do is make it so those teams dread going to sleep only to be haunted by rams that pack a punch and are surprisingly agile.

    I can see the next day conversations in the locker room, “OMG we had the same dream, and we have to warn others!!”

  4. No one questioned his talent. It’s the injuries and being a knucklehead off the field. Signing him to a 1 year vet min deal is the epitomy of “low risk high reward”.

  5. He’s doing fine as long as he stays in Missouri. But the Rams should have added a provision in his contract that prevents him from going to Joysey. Seems like whenever he goes there, he reverts back to stupid!

  6. As a longtime Titans fan, I was a big Kenny Britt supporter since he entered the league….but watching him play last year, it was hard to believe he had ever earned a roster spot in the NFL.

    We’re not just talking about a couple bad games here and there; he was so bad, he would hurt the team virtually every time he stepped on the field with numerous drops, mind-numbing penalties, and utterly undisciplined play.

    It reached a point where he literally couldn’t go more than a few plays without some sort of major screw-up or setback…..and the coaches finally stopped putting him on the field at all. There were games where he played only one or two snaps, and he was a healthy scratch more than once down the stretch.

    Kenny always came across as a nice-but-goofy kid who had loads of talent but had a habit of making dumb choices off the field. But last year, that talent was nowhere to be found. Once he started making those same type of boneheaded mistakes ON the field…and the Titans couldn’t get rid of him fast enough.

    I wish him luck in St. Louis. I can’t remember ever seeing an NFL player rebound from a performance as bad as Britt’s horrendous 2013 season….but hey, miracles can happen, right?

  7. kinda funny how that guy said “until his next assault charge” when he doesnt even have an assault charge at all… where are the facts? an assault investigation is completely different from being CHARGED with assault.. Kenny Britt was never charged with a crime.

  8. Now that the self proclaimed cheaters can’t cheat anymore since they are going to actually enforce a rule that was there last year though jolly Roger instructed the refs not to call it on them helping them all the way to a sb*,the rams should be right there in the end fighting for this division with the cards and niners, rams are stout on defense, Bunch of studs.

  9. Was at camp today Britt had a few nice catches. Also had his helmet ripped off by Joyner, who later got in alittle fight with Pettis. Looks like the RAMS are fired up. Can’t wait for season to start. All qbs look out the gates of hell are opening , and the RAMS are coming for you.

  10. As a fan of the Rams, I’m cautiously optimistic. This guy is a punk. But we have no WR’s. And Fish seems to like underperforming punks who trash talk (finnegan, Jenkins). Here’s hoping he actually manages to ‘mature-up.’ And quit making bad porn videos

  11. Greg Williams D will also help this team out alot. Stacy will improve, Just have to wait and see which Bradford shows up… the usual Sam or the injury prone Jason Campbell clone… oh wait

  12. Pro Football Focus ranks the Rams as somehow having the third-worst roster in the league. Bleacher Report lists the Rams’ coaching staff as #32 – dead last – in the NFL.

    Over the course of the next few months, these so-called experts will be forced to choke down a steady diet of crow.

  13. If he gets his off-field stuff behind him he could turn out to be nice option across from Austin catching balls from Bradford! Specially in Redzone. Keeping track of this For FF!
