Reports had swirled that the NFL might take it easy on Titans wideout Kenny Britt when it came to discipline and it appears that's the case as he's been suspended just a single game by Roger Goodell, CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora confirms.
La Canfora also reports that Britt is unlikely to appeal the suspension although a final decision has yet to be made. Britt wasn't a guarantee to participate in the first week's game to begin with.
The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt originally reported the news and, frankly, it's borderline shocking. Britt was recently activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list but has spent the past two offseasons getting pegged for arrest after arrest.
Britt picked up eight (EIGHT) arrests since the Titans took him in the 2009 NFL Draft. He was the poster child during the lockout for misbehaving athletes before the 2011 season but escaped punishment because there was no CBA.
Then Britt was arrested for DUI this offseason and seemed destined for a hammer job from Park Avenue. Instead, he's been suspended just a single game and suddenly could be a major factor for the Titans early on, provided he's healthy.
Fantasy owners who rolled the dice on the red-flag-covered wideout are likely rejoicing as well.
Kenny Britt just became the best Draft Day bargain for anyone who drafted prior to today! Bang!— Jamey Eisenberg (@JameyEisenberg) August 30, 2012
Jamey's spot on: Britt was treated like the plague in every fantasy draft I've taken part in because he's not healthy and he stood to miss around four games. Or so we thought.
When he's healthy (if he's healthy?) Britt is big-time deep threat and a serious playmaker. With rookie Kendall Wright, Nate Washington, Chris Johnson vertical tight end Jared Cook, Britt combines to give Jake Locker some serious weapons on offense.
