Last year the Titans’ decision to draft wide receiver Kenny Britt paid off nicely, as Britt led the team with 701 receiving yards.
But this year Britt has been dropping more than his share of passes in minicamps and organized team activities, and he’s the first to acknowledge that he isn’t making the kind of progress he’d like to make as his second NFL season approaches.
“It has been horrible,” Britt said, per Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “I am disappointed in myself. I know I have to get better. They expect me to get better. And that’s what I plan on doing.”
Britt acknowledges that he showed up out of shape to the team’s April minicamp, and he said the coaches’ decision to sit him during that minicamp was a wake-up call. Now he says he’s going to use the month off before training camp to turn his offseason around.
“I can’t be dropping balls out there for no reason. I know I have to focus a lot better,” Britt said. “So I am disappointed in myself, but I am not getting down, I am getting on myself to get better, and that is going to be on my mind the whole month of July. Even though everyone is going to be on vacation, this has to be my grinding time. I want to be the guy everyone can count on.”
