Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt is entering his fifth season in the NFL, so I guess this is a story about "better late than never."
From the Tennessean's Jim Wyatt: "By all accounts, Britt got serious this offseason. After a squabble with police in his native New Jersey, he trained in California and showed up for the start of the offseason program in good shape, impressing coaches and teammates. After multiple knee surgeries last offseason, Britt avoided the knife this offseason. If he's healthy and motivated -- which he should be in a contract year -- this could be a launching pad for a big season."
We know what Britt can do when healthy and not in trouble with the law. Just look at his injury-shortened seasons in 2010 and 2011. Small sample size, yes, but Britt's talent is undeniable. Britt has his doubters since he really hasn't done much on the field in 20 months. One of those doubters might be his own team as the Titans appear to be planning for Britt's exit as they have spent high-round picks on wide receivers in the last two drafts. Britt better have a big chip on his shoulder this year, and he could be a great value pick on fantasy draft day. He should be selected as a WR3, but expectations should be higher.
