In April, Rams coach Jeff Fisher said that the team was expecting more from wide receiver Kenny Britt after re-signing him to a two-year deal this offseason.
Britt’s comfortable with that expectation. After years with the Titans that were marked as much or more by off-field trouble and injuries than they were by sparkling play on the field, Britt caught 48 passes for 748 yards in his most productive season since 2010. That wasn’t enough to make him feel like he lived up to his potential, however.
“There’s definitely more I feel like I can give because there’s more that I want to give and there’s more that I want to do in my career,” Britt said, via ESPN.com. “I’m going into my seventh year, I feel I let myself down the last six years. I have a chip on my shoulder this year and I’ve got a lot to prove.”
Britt praised new Rams quarterback Nick Foles’s ability to throw the deep ball last week and more precision there would go a long way toward Britt reaching new heights. The Rams connected on 10-of-25 throws of 20 or more yards to Britt last season and even a marginal increase in that accuracy would bear a lot of fruit for the St. Louis offense.
