Despite rumors swirling that the Titans want to trade receiver Kenny Britt, coach Mike Munchak says Britt is very much in the team’s plans.
Munchak said “we have no plans” to trade Britt, although the Titans have fielded calls from other teams about him, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.
“Obviously, anything can happen,” Munchak said. “But he needs to help us win games, and hopefully that will be this weekend.”
Britt isn’t going to help the Titans win games by playing two snaps a game, as he did on Sunday. Munchak said he expects Britt’s playing time to increase.
“He needs to play more. He needs to get 20 snaps,” Munchak said. “I’d like to give him opportunities to make plays. Maybe he’s not starting, and maybe he’s not in the starting groups. But he needs to be in the mix, because the guy still has talent. We still believe in him, and want to give him opportunities even if he has dropped some balls. But we need to play him more, and I think he’ll rise up to the occasion.”
Britt and Munchak may not always see eye to eye, but Munchak sounds like he’s trying to make the best of the situation for the rest of the season.
