The early years of free-agent receiver Kenny Britt’s career were plagued by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Suddenly, he’s in the right place at the right time.
With the Panthers losing their top three wide receivers from 2013 and other viable options (Hakeem Nicks, James Jones) landing elsewhere, Carolina suddenly has interest in the eventually-to-be-former Titan. And Britt has leverage.
A source familiar with Britt’s plan explains to PFT that he could be making other visits after completing his trip to Washington (currently, he’s en route), which follows visits to the Rams and Patriots. One of those visits could be to Carolina.
The safest course of action would be to sign with the Rams, where he’d be reunited with former Titans coach Jeff Fisher. But Britt, who has stayed out of trouble since July 2012, has opted to expand the net in search of other possibilities.
While Britt won’t be rushing to make a decision, there’s a chance he’ll select his next team within the week. If it’s not the Panthers, Carolina will have cause to be even more concerned. The buyer’s market at receiver has seen a lot of buying, with a shrinking supply remaining.
Options include Jerricho Cotchery, Santonio Holmes (who may not be healthy enough to pass a physical), Miles Auston, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Mario Manningham, Robert Meachem, and Josh Morgan.
