In 2010, wide receiver Kenny Britt burst onto the scene with the Tennessee Titans catching 42 passes for 775 yards and nine touchdowns.
The future appeared to be bright for Britt with the Rutgers product becoming one of the best young receivers in the NFL. Few questioned the fact that Britt would ultimately become an elite receiver in the NFL and would help the Titans becoming a perennial playoff contention in the AFC, but it hasn’t exactly turned out that way with off-the-field incidents plaguing the promising receiver’s career.
Although Britt has been a problem off-the-field for the Titans and injuries have also taken their toll on the 24-year-old, veteran and former teammate Randy Moss believes Britt is a special player and could easily become one of the league’s elite if he can get it together via Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean:
“I can’t really speak about it because I have been into trouble off the field myself,” Moss said. “But from what I have seen Kenny Britt do, man, if he gets his mind right, Kenny Britt can get up in elite class very quickly. I am a big fan of his.
“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.”
As for Moss, the future remains uncertain after a somewhat successful season with the San Francisco 49ers. Moss was originally retired from the game after a disappointing stint alongside Britt with the Titans in 2010 before deciding to make a comeback with the 49ers in 2012.
Moss will become a free agent next month with head coach Jim Harbaugh hoping he’ll return for at least one more season in San Francisco.
