Britt's visit with the Redskins didn't result in a contract, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Coming off an ugly 2017 campaign followed by a season out of the league, Britt is looking at a difficult path back to NFL relevance. He'll turn 31 in September and doesn't have much experience playing special teams.
Britt is visiting the Redskins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Britt spent the 2018 campaign out of football after the Patriots released him Aug. 22 due to persistent issues with his hamstring. Seemingly back to full strength, the 30-year-old will need to battle for a roster spot wherever he signs, even if it's a team like Washington with an incredibly weak depth chart at wide receiver. Britt previously played with Redskins quarterback Case Keenum for the 2016 Rams during the lone 1,000-yard season of the wideout's career.
Britt (hamstring) scheduled a workout with the Patriots on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Patriots released Britt on Aug. 22 with an injury designation, but the team's decision to welcome him back for a workout suggests he's now reasonably healthy. With the team seemingly not fully comfortable with its existing depth wideouts, Britt might be viewed as an upgrade over No. 5 receiver Corey Coleman, who signed with the team last week. However, any hope for a reunion between Britt and the Patriots may have been extinguished after Rapoport reported Monday that the team is nearing a deal with the Browns to acquire Josh Gordon.
The Patriots plan to release Britt (hamstring), Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The purge of injured wideouts continues in New England, with Britt following the same path Jordan Matthews (hamstring) and Malcolm Mitchell (knee) did earlier this summer. The 29-year-old was expected to be in the mix for a key role during Julian Edelman's four-game suspension to begin the season, but a hamstring injury has made it impossible for Britt to put forth his case. Phillip Dorsett seems to have a solid grasp on the starting job opposite Chris Hogan, at least until Edelman is reinstated.
Britt (hamstring) is not on track to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Britt displayed some flashes in OTAs, but he's been slowed in training camp, stalling what could have turned into a modest hype train in the wake of the departure of both Jordan Matthews and Malcolm Mitchell. Look for Britt to make a push for a key role in the Patriots offense during the last two-plus weeks of the team's preparation in advance of regular-season action. Given that Julian Edelman is suspended for the first four weeks of the season, Chris Hogan is the only New England wideout locked into a starting job. Britt, if healthy, thus has a chance to make a mark out of the gate, though at this stage, the likes of Phillip Dorsett, Eric Decker and Cordarrelle Patterson are also jostling for slotting on the team's WR depth chart.
