Report: Titans WR Kenny Britt rips his punishment from team for missing rehab
If Titans receiver Kenny Britt was worried about visiting Roger Goodell's office twice in one year after he continues to have a tough time staying out of trouble off the field, perhaps he also should be concerned about using social media to blast his team.

If Titans receiver Kenny Britt was worried about visiting Roger Goodell’s office twice in one year after he continues to have a tough time staying out of trouble off the field, perhaps he also should be concerned about using social media to blast his team.

Apparently, that thought didn’t cross Britt’s mind Wednesday when he complained on Instagram about getting fined by his team for missing a rehab workout. So, to recap: Britt supposedly missed a rehab workout, drawing the ire of the Titans. The team fined him $9,915. And Britt took to the Inter-tubes to write this (via the Tennessean):
“Yu gotta be (expletive) kidding me.. walk back to dis.. Don’t dey know I have kids .. I’m tired of did (expletive).”
Which has to be somewhat infuriating for the team, especially considering it seems like Britt STILL doesn’t get it (even after eight legal entanglements since he joined the team in 2009, including a DUI last month).
Britt, who’s working back from offseason arthroscopic knee surgery, apparently missed the rehab workout Tuesday.
This is what he told the Tennessean on Wednesday when asked about his meeting with Goodell.
“It was a personal meeting and I would rather just wait and see what happens," Britt said. "I am a man about what I did and I will take it on the chin on whatever he decides and move forward.
"What is my gut telling me? I really don't know. He didn't really give me any body language on what is going to happen. He just wasn't really pleased about seeing me in there. No person would like to see a player in their office twice in one year."
And no team wants to see a player complaining about what seems like a perfectly legit punishment for missing a rehab assignment.
