Kenny Britt now says Facebook account was hacked

UPDATE: Prunty tweets that Britt has deleted the offending post citing a "change of heart." Britt then claimed in a subsequent post that his Facebook account was hacked and he has no plans to retire. We believe this is commonly referred to as the "Anthony Weiner defense." Either way, mystery solved. 

Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt has been in the news recently for all the wrong reasons. Between his court appearances and arrests, it's a wonder he has time to post to Facebook. But according to the Twitter feed of the Newark Star-Ledger's Brendan Prunty, this was on Britt's Facebook wall Monday afternoon:

"Retiring from the NFL. F*** You Goddell." So there is that."

It's not clear if Britt was being ironic when he referred to Roger Goodell as "Goddell," or if he just misspelled the NFL commissioner's name.

In any event, Britt still doesn't seem to get it. ESPN's John Clayton thinks Britt "could be facing a one- or two-game suspension [for his legal entanglements] if the player conduct policy is re-established … his continued problems with the law are going to catch up to him."

As might his social media habits. But the Titans say they have no plans to cut ties with Britt, probably because he's the second-most dynamic player on the team after RB Chris Johnson. And rookie QB Jake Locker is going to need all the help he can get.

Still, with every new revelation in the Britt saga, we're reminded of something his father told the Star-Ledger in April.

“I’m worried about [Kenny] all the time. … But my concern is not with Kenny, per se, it’s more with Kenny’s friends, and he knows that," Britt's father said. "He has too many friends with too much free time. He needs to be around more positive people.”

This also reminds us of something Mike Heimerdinger, Britt's former offensive coordinator in Tennessee, said last week. “Kenny can be as good as anybody, but eventually you have to grow up.”

Does the insanity plea work for NFL players?  Or maybe he just has a new form of tourettes that translates to technology.  Either way I am sure there is a logical explanation for Britt's multiple arrests and lude behavior Tongue out

If he admitted to saying Fuck you Goodell I'm sure a lot more people would respect him for 

1. Admitting his anger and manning up
2. It's a respectable thing to say.

I'd say it too if my own mother among other people weren't on Tongue out

I agree in that he should just man up.  These guys are using the account is hacked way too much.  He is a loser and i kinda wish he would retire.

wish he would have just manned up and said " yeah, I told the commish to go F himself". So tired of people saying what they mean and then apologizing for it. Its America damn it, let the free speech fly!!! Im sure theres a lot of players that would like to tell the commis that about now. Doesnt change the fact that Britt is still an undisciplined Ahole that cant get out of his own way and will prolly end up like Chris Henry. There I said it, and Im not gonna apologize for it.
