The once-promising career of Kenny Britt has come to a disappointing standstill as the Tennessee Titans wide receiver is poised to hit free agency with the arrow on his career pointing downward after another poor season marked by drops, poor blocking, lazy route-running and a general lack of awareness.
Despite the troubles Britt has experienced on and off-the-field over the past couple years which includes ACL surgery, Britt remains confident that he can fulfill the potential he displayed coming out of Rutgers as a first round pick and thinks he’s going to be a major contributor next year, it just won’t be in Tennessee.
“I am going to be a No. 1 receiver somewhere else if I am not here next year, and that is guaranteed,” Britt told The Tennessean at the end of the season. “I am definitely going to be a receiver that makes plays on Sundays and makes something happen for a team.”
Britt is likely to find offers for him to be of the one-year variety with a low amount of guaranteed money, but loaded with incentives if he meets certain statistical marks as a team looks to roll the dice on a player who has the potential to be a No. 1 receiver even if he hasn’t demonstrated that in recent years.
