Rams sign Kenny Britt

ESPN - [Full Article]

The St. Louis Rams have signed former Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt to a one-year, $1.4M deal, including $550,000 guaranteed, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The maximum value of the deal is $2.9 million, the source said.

Drafted 30th overall in the 2009 draft, Britt wowed the Titans with his ability to get off the press at the line of scrimmage. He caught 42 passes in each of his first two seasons, with nine touchdown catches in 2010.

But he's spiraled downward from there, suffering a torn ACL early in 2010. He has also caused the Titans headaches with multiple off-field incidents that drew police attention.

He looked primed for a big contract year with a solid training camp in 2013, but with early drops and penalty issues he became a non-factor, playing little once he lost his confidence and not dressing for three of the final four games.

Fantasy Impact:

It's a deal that's been rumored for a while. Britt has fantasy sleeper potential this season, but most owners have likely grown tired of waiting for that by now. Still, he could very well lead the Ram WRs this year if things work out. As the story points out, since 2010 he suffered a torn ACL, had multiple off-field incidents that drew police attention and last year had early drops and penalty issues which eventually moved him down the Titans depth chart.

Patriots still looking to upgrade at receiver
Tuesday, March 18, 2014, 10:51am

Boston Globe - [Full Article]

Even by bringing Julian Edelman back and adding Brandon LaFell, the Patriots probably aren’t done adding bodies at receiver. They still brought in former Titan Kenny Britt for a visit on Monday, a source told the Globe, and have checked out names such as Jason Avant and Lance Moore in the past week.

Edelman is a roster lock, while Danny Amendola, who just had $2 million in base salary guaranteed last week, and Aaron Dobson, last year’s second-round pick, should be safe, while LaFell (6-2, 210) gives the Patriots a big presence in the slot.

Meanwhile, it looks like the Patriots want to hold a derby for the fifth receiver spot between fourth-round pick Josh Boyce, who was inactive for seven games and only caught nine passes last year, undrafted rookie Kenbrell Thompkins, who did not catch a pass in the team’s final six games of the season, a veteran such as Britt, and perhaps a few rookies.

Fantasy Impact:

It's interesting that beat writer Ben Volin believes that LaFell will play in the slot, even with Edelman and Amendola in the fold. Dobson is coming off of foot surgery, but figures to start outside if he's healthy. It sounds as if Thompkins or Boyce may be on the chopping block if the team adds another receiver in free agency or the draft.

Kenny Britt says he doesn't think he got a fair shake this year in Tennessee. Says other WRs dropped balls, so he thought there was double standard.

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

Kenny Britt might feel like throwing a tantrum, but he promises he won’t, no matter how frustrated he is with a lack of playing time.

“I am definitely surprised with me not playing. I really don’t know the reason, and I don’t ask the reason why, I just go out there and do my job,” the Titans wide receiver said on Wednesday. “Since I have been benched I have been working 10 times harder … to show what I can do.

“It is definitely frustrating, but I try not to show it. I don’t want to show it because it is not about me. But I can promise you I am definitely going to keep fighting until the end.”

Britt lost his place in the starting lineup earlier this season, and lately he’s rarely been on the field.

Fantasy Impact:

Britt is a pending free agent and won't be back in 2014. He'll draw some interest on the free agent market but didn't show much explosion this season. He's averaging just 8.4 YPR on eight catches.

Mario Manningham, the 49ers’ second-leading wide receiver last season, will likely begin practicing after sustaining torn knee ligaments Dec. 23 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact:

The 9ers could really use the help at WR, and have been linked to trade-bait names like Kenny Britt, Josh Gordon and Hakeem Nicks. Manningham's fantasy value is likely in deeper leagues, where he could be worth the add if you're hurting at the position.
