Kenny Britt on his career: We don’t count Cleveland

Kenny Britt‘s teams went 5-13 this season, including two wins in the postseason. Yet, the wide receiver has made it to the Super Bowl.

It’s no wonder Britt considers himself the luckiest man in the world this week, though the Patriots likely make him inactive for a third consecutive postseason game.

“I’m pretty sure everybody else would [consider me that],” Britt said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “My wife does. I’m glad to get the opportunity to be in a place where I’m well respected and the guys are glad for me to be here.”

The Browns cut Britt after 12 games, 18 catches, 233 yards and $10.5 million. Five days later, Britt signed a two-year deal with New England.

“To tell you the truth, I really don’t think about those times when I was Cleveland,” Britt said. “Too busy getting ready for games. We’re still playing.”

Britt said he wasn’t surprised the Browns went 0-16 and admits he tries to forget his brief stay in Cleveland. When he said he has played for four teams, a reporter corrected him that he played for five.

“We don’t count Cleveland,” Britt said.

  1. “Too busy getting ready for games. We’re still playing.”

    If you haven’t caught a pass since Christmas Eve, you aren’t really playing…

  2. He won’t be wearing a uniform on Sunday.

    WRs – Cooks, Amendola, Hogan, Dorsett (don’t count Slater as he special teams).

    Next year will be tougher when Edelman and Mitchell are playing. Can’t see Britt making the team.

  3. “Too busy getting ready for games. We’re still playing.” said the man who is inactive and isn’t actually playing.

    Here is a freaky stat: Kenny Britt has as many 2017/2018 postseason receptions as all of the Cleveland Brown’s wide receivers, Jerry Rice, Michael Irvin, Babe Ruth and my grandmother COMBINED! What a stud! Play on, Player. Well cheer on, cheerleader would be more appropriate.

  4. Maybe he said 4 teams because he played for the Titans, Rams, Browns, and Patriots, which is 4 teams.

  5. “There is always one Patriot that has been quiet all year that plays the game of their life in the Superbowl, he could be this years sleeper!’

    He won’t be active.

    St. Louis Rams and L.A. Rams. They are counting the Rams twice because technically it was 2 different teams. So it is 5 teams. I was confused about that as well.

  7. kenny britt is a bum. he’s gonna drop the game winning touchdown when the eagles slap them guys silly. dilly dilly!

  8. This is an amusing story, but Britt has no credibility to talk down on Cleveland. He did absolutely nothing positive as a Brown. You never watched a Browns game and thought, “Well, at least Kenny Britt came to play today.” Quite the contrary — you watched the games and considered Britt’s terrible play as representative of the entire team.

  9. Keep running those practice routes. Mimicking the opposition in practice is an unsung endeavor. Every little bit helps. Go Pats!

  10. The reporter that corrected him was wrong. Britt HAS played for 4 teams, the Titans, Rams, Browns & Pats. The Rams going from St Louis to LA doesn’t qualify them as a different team. Firing Fisher sort of made them a different team but that’s a whole ‘nother subject.

    I really hate being the one to point this out to another Pats fan (or heaven forbid raise the level of discussion) but there’s no guarantee Amendola is back next year (FA) or that Mitchell will be ready to go. Dorsett hasn’t exactly torn it up and he and Britt have eerily similar (and affordable) cap numbers. I know Belichick thinks very highly of Dola and he has taken less to stay here the last couple of years but at 32 no one should hold it against him if he feels the need to cash in on a money contract. Like any Pats fan I love the guy and hope he’s here but we need to accept reality and respect whatever way he goes with what would be a very difficult decision for him.

  12. Its bad enough when players that have been on the team for 3 years walk around with puffy chests talking smack because Brady is under center covering up their short comings. But know we have guys that have been on the team for 3 minutes doing it.

  13. Trust me, when he is looking for a team to latch onto next season these comments will not fall on deaf ears. Dude is a scout team receiver and has the stones to badmouth a team that gave him a nice contract to be their #1. Britt has consistently shown he is perpetually 13 years old. Finally, what does it say when the Browns cut you during the season?

  14. Gronk is the only tall receiver we have so maybe he gets activated for the Super Bowl for his height in the red zone. It would be more entertaining though to see Bernard Reedy, the guy that drives the disabled van in the activated at five foot eight, and have him come into the Super Bowl and catch three touchdown passes and be the MVP LOL.

  15. Can you count his time in Cleveland or New England as “playing”? I’d say he only played for 2 teams. He got paid to exercise in Cleveland and he’s a cheerleader for New England.

  16. Took Cleveland`s money, put forth minimal effort and now wants to badmouth? Give me a break. Reminds me of Roger Dorn in Major League.
