Kenny Britt knows he’s falling behind

Wide receiver Kenny Britt joined the Patriots late last season and caught two passes for 23 yards before embarking on an offseason he hoped would land him a role in the team’s offense this year.

With a couple of key departures from the receiving corps, the chances of Britt doing that were discussed often over the last few months. A hamstring injury has gotten in the way of that happening, however.

Britt is no longer on the physically unable to perform list, but he isn’t practicing fully as the Patriots move toward their third preseason game. Britt knows that his unavailability isn’t doing him any favors.

“I definitely feel like I’m behind because I’m not out there with the guys getting the chemistry that I need with the quarterbacks and just with everybody on the same page with what we do,” Britt said, via the Providence Journal.

Julian Edelman‘s four-game suspension may leave a spot open at receiver that wouldn’t otherwise be there, but it won’t do Britt any good if he continues to do his work on a side field rather than the main one.

  1. As long as there’s no white receivers available in FA or by trade, his spot on the bench should be safe. I think one of the most underrated stories of the offseason was Jordy Nelson choosing Gruden over BB. Speaks volumes.

  2. .
    Britt is in competition with Cordarelle Patterson, among others. While Patterson was making big plays in each of the first two games, Britt was chilling out on the beach.

    But the Patriots homers told me he was going to be Randy Moss 2.0! How can this be?
    —————————————————
    You’re as bad as the press….. just throwing things out there & hoping it sticks……NOBODY compared Britt to Moss as far as ability…… they MAY, if there was even a comment made, have been comparing how BRADY COULD do as much to bring out the best in Britt like he did with Moss…..

    Jordy never had a choice….BB didn’t want him. If he did, Jordy would be a Patriot right now. No one in their right mind chooses anyone over BB unless its for the almighty dollar.

    Im sure Nelson’s decision was influnced by how Gruden wanted him and Belichick didn’t.

  7. “As long as there’s no white receivers available in FA or by trade, his spot on the bench should be safe. ”

    Ah the lie about Belichick and racism again.

    The following is a list of the African American receivers Belichick has had on the Pats –

    Sam Aiken
    Deion Branch
    Vincent Brisby
    Troy Brown
    Reche Caldwell
    Brandon Childress
    Ben Coates
    Doug Gabriel
    Jabar Gaffney
    Joey Galloway
    David Givens
    Daniel Graham
    Donald Hayes
    Chad Jackson
    Bethel Johnson
    Chad Johnson
    Brandon Lloyd
    Randy Moss
    David Patten
    PK Sam
    Matthew Slater
    Donte Stallworth
    JJ Stokes
    Kelley Washington
    Ben Watson
    Jermaine Wiggins

    That doesn’t include the numerous African American Belichick has employed at other positions.

    You don’t like Bill or the Pats fine, but telling a blatant lie about something like this is just plain sad.

  8. Guys guys guys…why do you even WASTE your time & energy responding to the moronic & totally fabricated comments that the jealous & envious Patriot detractors post?? They are so dejected about the lousy teams that the follow they have nothing better to do than run to every Patriots thread & rant t about SOMETHING, ANYTHING that will help them try to get over the fact that they have NOTHING to look forward to AGAIN THIS SEASON while WE, THE FORTUNATE ONES, Get to watch our WICKED AWESOME PATRIOTS kick butt AGAIN!!!
    Let’s just enjoy the tears of the downtrodden non Patriot fans as much as the Patriots WINS!!!!!
    Go Pats!!!

  9. Belichick can’t do anything right..

    He has only been to 3 of the last 4 Super Bowls and won 2 of them.

    With a performance record like that he should resign…

    Isn’t that right trolls, haters, losers???? How many Super Bowls your team been too in the last 4 years?
