Panthers free agency rumors: Carolina trying to swoop in and sign Kenny Britt?

Wide receiver Kenny Britt, for all of his career struggles and the fact that he was a couple no-show in 2013, finds himself a hot commodity on the free agent market.

Britt was in New England for a visit this week and now he is on his way to see the Washington Redskins. That might not be the end of the process for him, however, as Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Of those listed as additional interested teams, the Panthers are certainly the most desperate. They have lost both Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell with no replacements to speak of. Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk notes the potential wrench that Carolina could throw into Britt’s situation:

With the Panthers losing their top three wide receivers from 2013 and other viable options (Hakeem NicksJames Jones) landing elsewhere, Carolina suddenly has interest in the eventually-to-be-former Titan.”

Britt can be a tough guy to root for, but things appear to have aligned nicely for him here as a desperate team like the Panthers could really drive up his market.
