The St. Louis Rams' chances of landing free-agent WR Kenny Britt (Titans) are 'better than 50 percent,' according to general manager Les Snead. Britt has visited with the Rams, Washington Redskins, New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: The Pats are reportedly now out of the running, but the Skins are said to remain interested in the wideout, who never has had more than 45 receptions or 775 yards in any of his 5 NFL seasons.

Pat Dye Jr., agent for free-agent WR Kenny Britt (Titans), said Britt could meet with the Carolina Panthers at some point.
Huddle Up: With the FA WR market getting slim, the Bills also are reportedly inteterested in Britt, who only has 73 receptions and 7 TDs over the past 3 seasons.

Free-agent WR Kenny Britt (Titans) left his visit with the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, March 18, without a deal. He is being deliberate with selecting his new team, and that is by design.
Huddle Up: Since his hot start (17-289-3 TDs) in the first 3 games of the 2011 season, Britt has only 56 receptions, 685 yards and 4 TDs and has undergone multiple knee surgeries. He has a lot of catch-up work to do wherever he lands before he can be considered a fantasy factor again.

The Tennessee Titans are shopping WR Kenny Britt and aren't asking for a lot in return. No other team appears to want to deal for him.
Huddle Up: Shocking, really, that no other team wants to give up anything for an oft-injured, unproductive wide receiver with tons of off-field baggage who will be a free agent at the end of the season.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said the team is still trying to figure out WR Kenny Britt's role in the offense. Britt was on the field for only two snaps during the team's Week 6 game, and Munchak said Britt needs to make plays to get more playing time.
Huddle Up: He did make a catch on one of those snaps, but things aren't looking good for Britt or his fantasy value as long as he's in Tennessee. Your best bet is to hold onto him and see if he gets traded in the next two weeks.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt played only two snaps in Week 6. The team is believed to be shopping him and are hoping to get a third-round pick for him.
Huddle Up: Tough to see any team spending a third-round pick on an oft-injured, frequently troubled free agent-to-be. But the Titans can hope. And Britt can hope for a fresh start somewhere else, as when healthy (and not bogged down in off-field issues) he can be a productive NFL wideout.

Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said the team will reassess WR Kenny Britt's role after he had just one catch in Week 5. They threw to him six times on the day.
Huddle Up: Don't be surprised if Britt is reassessed right out of Tennessee. He's a free agent after the season, and the Titans have Justin Hunter and Kendall Wright as emerging talents--not to mention all of Britt's injury and off-the-field history. If he's not producing, and not even a factor in the offense, his roster spot can be put to better use.

Tennessee Titans general manager Ruston Webster acknowledged Friday, Oct. 4, that the team has fielded 'a call or two' from teams interested in trading for WR Kenny Britt. However, he added there have been no major discussions. 'We're not making calls,' Webster added.
Huddle Up: Britt no longer has fantasy value in Tennessee. The only way for Britt's fantasy fortunes to change in 2013 is for him to get traded to another team.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt revealed he suffered a fractured rib in Week 3. He expects to practice Thursday, Sept. 26, and play in Week 4.
Huddle Up: See how Britt is playing through pain? Who wouldn't want to pony up a big deal for him this offseason?

The Detroit Lions could look to trade for Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt or Cleveland Browns WRs Josh Gordon or Greg Little after WR Nate Burleson (arm) suffered a broken arm in a car crash.
Huddle Up: Gordon, whose 2013 debut netted 10 receptions for 149 yards and a TD on 19 targets Sunday, would be the clear prize here, but the Browns need to keep some talent around, don't they? Britt, meanwhile, would figure to be available given his rocky Tenn. tenure and the Titans' otherwise deep WR corps but the Lions likely want to steer clear of troubled wideouts having already travelled the route with Titus Young.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt was targeted five times in Week 3 against the San Diego Chargers, but he did not record any receptions.
Huddle Up: He did get injured during the game, but it was a brutal day for Britt, who was outplayed by his fellow receivers.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt was benched in Week 2 for mistakes and lackadaisical blocking. He has two more catches than penalties this season. 'That's two weeks in a row he's had a holding call, so it was more to refocus him,' head coach Mike Munchak said.
Huddle Up: You'd think being in a contract year would be more than enough to refocus Britt, but he has yet to step up this season. Between his lackadaisical effort, competition for looks in the Tennessee passing game, and Jake Locker's inconsistency it will be tough for Britt to mount any sort of salary push.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt hopes to get more involved in the offense moving forward. Britt said it is up the quarterback and the offensive coordinator to get him the ball more.
Huddle Up: He gets a tasty matchup this week, and he was targeted plenty last week. It's only a matter of time.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt (knee) will not play in the team's final preseason game, according to head coach Mike Munchek.
Huddle Up: Britt, who has been dealing with knee swelling, played in the Titans' first 3 exhibition contests and still has the highest ADP (95.16) among the team's WRs.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt sat out for the second straight day Monday, Aug. 12. He has had swelling and soreness in his right knee, but he is expected to play in the preseason game this weekend.
Huddle Up: It had been a banner offseason for Britt: he was healthy, and he hadn't had any brushes with the law. Now his knee is acting up; can an arrest be far behind? Britt is playing for a contract this year, so it would behoove him to get healthy and back on the field as soon as possible.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt missed practice Sunday, Aug. 11, due to a sore knee.
Huddle Up: Britt was healthy and trouble-free in the offseason, so we won't hit the panic button about knee issues resurfacing. As a free agent following the season, Britt has extra motivation to stay on the field--and produce when he's there.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt used a different approach to organized team activities (OTAs) this season. In the past, he viewed OTAs and training camp as opportunities to get in shape, rather than maintaining his fitness away from the team's facilities. This season, he is taking a different approach. "It was in my mind as a young player that I could get in shape (when I got here), instead of being in shape at the start of training camp. I thought I could take this (time) off, and get back into shape in camp," Britt said. "That is not something I want to do any more. I want to be in shape at the start of camp and be ready to go. I don't want to fall behind everybody."
Huddle Up: Funny how Britt's epiphany comes as he enters the final year of his contract. But hey, a motivated and in-shape Britt is something fantasy owners should be happy to capitalize on.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt, who is entering the final season of his five-year contract, appeared to run routes during organized team activities (OTAs) without any signs of struggle. WR Kendall Wright feels Britt is healthy and ready to go. "Kenny is healthy and he's doing good. He looks way different," Wright said. "He took his offseason serious and went and got his knees right."
Huddle Up: You'd like to think the motivation of a big payday would be enough to keep Britt away from the off-field issues that have sidetracked his career; whether that motivation also keeps him healthy, however, is another story entirely. There's plenty of upside to Britt's game, so if you like to play the "contract year" card he's an excellent candidate this year.

Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt has gotten serious this offseason, training in California, and showing up for the start of the offseason program in good shape, impressive coaches and teammates. Britt had multiple knee surgeries last offseason, but he has not had any operations this season, and that could be a springboard to big season.
Huddle Up: A healthy Britt is certainly a big part of the equation; now he needs to stay out of trouble off the field, and he needs Jake Locker to play like a first-round draft pick. If you think lightning can strike three times in the same place, then Britt is the kind of high upside fantasy player you'll want to take a chance on.
