Despite re-signing Julian Edelman while also reaching an agreement with Brandon LaFell, it appears the New England Patriots are still in an arms race with the Denver Broncos and are looking at adding another wide receiver. According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, that receiver could be free agent Kenny Britt, who is still visiting the Patriots this week.
After his visit on Monday with the Patriots, Florio reports that Britt will then hop over to Washington to talk with the Redskins about joining Robert Griffin III.
Per a league source, the next visit after New England will be to Washington. The Redskins expressed interest in Britt early in free agency, and the interest currently remains.
If the Patriots are serious about signing Britt — which inviting him in for a visits despite signing two receivers seems to indicate — then they’re going to want to make sure he doesn’t leave without a contract. As Emmanuel Sanders proved, they’ll want to make sure it’s a signed contract as we’ll.
Britt hasn’t been the best of threats in his career, but Tom Brady is one of the best quarterbacks and if there’s a guy who can get talent out of Britt, it’s Brady.
