NFL Free Agency Rumors: Carolina Panthers still interested in Kenny Britt


The Carolina Panthers purged themselves of all their valuable targets for Cam Newton and are finding the rebuilding of their receiving corps to be very difficult. The Panthers haven’t had much luck signing big names, and their interest in Kenny Britt seems to highlight that.

A bust in Tennessee, Britt seems to be the best option at the moment for the Panthers which is why it’s not surprising that they remain interested in signing him.

 

The Bills entering the equation is new, but nothing seems to be imminent with Britt. He’s had visiting in Washington, St. Louis and New England and hasn’t found deal yet.

He has character issues and is a problem off the field, but the Panthers may find no one better on the market and might have to take a shot with him out of sheer necessity.

    seems like all of this could have been avoided by just keeping Steve Smith.

      We were 29th in passing last year, there isn’t much lower we can go. Why not purge and get young, fast recievers? Gettleman has a plan, just gotta keep pounding!

        I whole hardheartedly agree. Why get someone you will have off the field issues with.

      If Steve Smith was the answer, then why was our passing attack so bad last year? This writer makes the Panthers seem more desperate than they are, they’ve already replaced LaFell and Ginn and still have a handful of options who can at worst case scenario give us the numbers Smith did last year, plus there are trade rumors floating around and a very, very deep class of WRs in the draft. I think they can emerge as a much better group than weve had in years
