Titans will 'have to reassess everything' on receiver Kenny Britt

Kenny Britt, selected No. 30 overall in the 2009 draft, was supposed to be the Titans No. 1 receiver of the future. But after numerous legal run-ins and some mediocre play on the field, it's unclear what Tennessee will do next with him.

But it doesn't sound like the team is accepting of what Britt is providing this season, especially since Kendall Wright and Nate Washington (and tight end Delanie Walker) have passed him in receiving importance in Tennessee's offense.

On the season, Britt has six catches for 52 yards, both stats rank him sixth on the team. Neither total reflects great on a receiver who's in the middle of a contract year.

“We're gonna have to reassess everything at this point. We'll evaluate after we watch the tape,” Tennessee offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said, via the Titans Insider. “Obviously, I'm not gonna hide anything. He had probably three drops in the game. The one that bothered me most was when it was 17-13, and you've got third and 2, and you've got to make that play. We dropped the ball, and it puts you in a tough spot. We were moving the football. We had kind of flipped the field again, and that hurt us.”

On the day, Britt was targeted six times by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. He made one catch for nine yards. But what about his potential?

“Potential just means you haven't done anything,” Loggains said.

For his part, Britt probably hasn't helped his case, especially when intimating on Twitter that he'll be gone from the team after this season. But at this point, that might be what the team actually wants, especially since the the Titans reportedly have fielded trade offers for him.

Unfortunately for Britt, it might not be that easy to find a trade partner who wants to accept a player who's had plenty of off-the-field issues but who doesn't do much when he's actually on the field.
