Titans' Mike Munchak says he is proud of Kenny Britt

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt was demoted from the starting line up after dropping several passes early in the summer. Things got worse and he was demoted even further down the depth chart and played a total of two snaps in Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. There were rumors that he was on the trade block.

“We have no plans to (trade him),” Titans head coach Mike Munchak said, according to the Tennessean. “Obviously, anything can happen. But we he needs to help us win games, and hopefully that will be this weekend.”

Britt’s actions and behavior during this situation gained him some respect and admiration from his coach.

“Kenny has handled a tough situation very well, and I’m proud of him for that,” Munchak said. “It is not easy, and it is frustrating for him, I’m sure. I am sure he is hearing it from a lot of people. I know his expectations are so high. But he is handling himself really well.”

Britt is also out of the doghouse and could see a bump in playing time.

“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.”

On the season, Britt has 7 catches for 59 yards.
