Kenny Britt said his treatment with the Tennessee Titans was not fair, according to a tweet by The Tennessean's John Glennon. We tend to agree.
Like so many wide receivers before him, Britt became known as a diva, falling behind the younger likes of Kendall Wright, Damian Williams (also a free agent) and Justin Hunter on Tennessee's depth chart.
You should not blame the Titans either. They are a rebuilding club that needs to develop young talent as opposed to continuing to pound the pavement with an overconfident and far-too-vocal/sensitive retread.
Britt is still a potential starter, if not star, in this league.
Just ask him.
The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt did:
I am going to be a No. 1 receiver somewhere else if I am not here next year, and that is guaranteed. I am definitely going to be a receiver that makes plays on Sundays and makes something happen for a team. ...
Whatever happens next year, I'm looking forward to it.
Britt's struggles since his sophomore season (775 yards and nine touchdowns) can conceivably be blamed on poor quarterback play. He had reconstructive knee surgery in there, but if he can get his knee, body and mind right, he can emerge as a potential 65-catch, 1,000-yard, 10-touchdown receiver.
Imagine him taking a low-ball, one-year deal with a team like the San Francisco 49ers and working opposite Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis for Colin Kaepernick. Britt has a lot of warts among NFL evaluators, but he could prove to be the steal of the offseason.
