Kenny Britt played a full season for the first time since his rookie year in 2014 and responded with a career high in catches for the Rams while making a team-high 13 catches of at least 20 yards.
That earned him a two-year deal to stay with St. Louis, where he stands at the top of the depth chart at this point in the offseason. Those 48 catches from last season are a modest total for a career high, though, and coach Jeff Fisher says that he believes that Britt is capable of doing more in his second season with the team.
“It didn’t surprise me because obviously I know Kenny, the production didn’t surprise me,” Fisher said, via ESPN.com. “I can kind of share the same issue Kenny does and that’s we think he can be better. I think he can do better. He thinks he can be better. He thinks he can be more productive. He’s looking forward to the offensive changes. I think yeah, we should see a lot more out of Kenny this year.”
Britt’s contract contains incentives that will earn him a lot more money and potentially void the second year of the deal if he hits new highs on the field in 2015. That won’t happen without better quarterback play and pass protection, two things that are going to be vital to whatever hopes St. Louis of making similar improvement as a team.
