When Randy Moss tells a wideout to shape up his act, it's a sign something has gone seriously askew.
Moss, freely admitting his own missteps, said of Britt:
Kenny Britt is a young receiver who can get in that A.J. Green, Julio Jones mix if he wants to, and does the things to make it happen. But his is more mental than it is physical. I hope it works out for him because he is quite a talent. That guy could be special.
Moss' comments about Britt were entirely positive, calling himself "a big fan of his," but the fact that they were even necessary highlights the unpleasant roller-coaster of off-field incidents that has marred Britt's tenure in Tennessee.
The problem with potential-laden head cases is that eventually teams get tired of waiting on the promise of unrealized production and are forced to focus on the headaches that come with them.
Moss knows that all too well. He was perhaps the most dominant offensive weapon in NFL history when he wanted to be, but all too often, he was disinterested in reaching his full potential. That forced him to five different teams in what should have been his prime.
Britt has only worn one jersey, but if he doesn't pull it together soon, he'll find himself in new colors as well.
