When the Tennessee Titans took Kenny Britt in the 2009 NFL Draft at No. 30 overall, it appeared to be the perfect fit for an up-and-coming offense.
From the highlight tapes, I was enamored with his skill set. Matched with Vince Young (of Kerry Collins or Matt Hasselbeck) and Chris Johnson, Britt was a complimentary piece to what could become a boom-or-bust offense.
Standing at 6’3″, 215, Britt was a monster in his rookie season, notching 701 yards as a rookie, then 775 in his sophomore campaign.
He managed to record 289 yards and three touchdowns in just three games before tearing his ACL in 2011. A combination of injuries and off-the-field issues derailed his career, but Britt has landed with the St. Louis Rams with an opportunity to turn his career around.
STL HC Jeff Fisher on Rams WR Kenny Britt: “He could potentially return to where he was a very productive receiver.”

As far as being a fan, I can only hope Britt not only returns to being a productive receiver, but that he lives a healthy off-the-field life.
