WR Kenny Britt got his wake-up call. Now the Titans want the receiver to do what they drafted him to do — take ownership of a place in the starting lineup and become a star.
The Rutgers product and first-round pick started six games as a rookie last season, had two 100-yard games and led the team in receiving yards. He made the Titans' biggest catch of the season — a game-winner against the Cardinals as time expired.
He got off to a rocky start this offseason, however, by being lackadaisical. He was sometimes absent during the early stages of the offseason program and admitted to being distracted when he should have been working out.
Coaches left him on the sideline when the Titans held their first round of practices in April, but he will be on the field this week when veterans and rookies are together for the first time.
"I have my eyes on doing anything possible,'' Britt said. "Whatever coaches ask me to do, I'll do. It is not what I did last year or what can I do, it is what coaches ask me to do.''
Britt has a chance to be an impact fantasy player this season if he takes the right steps, and that's a bold statement considering its the Titans passing offense. He's definitely a guy to get as late as you can in the draft because he could prove to be a great value.
