Jim Wyatt of Tennessean.com says that second-year pro Kenny Britt has not exactly established himself as the No. 1 receiver in Tennessee this offseason. Britt, who led the team in receiving yards as a first-round pick last season, has had trouble with dropped passes.
Wyatt strikes a harsh note against Britt, and Britt basically backs him up:
He's gone backwards, leading to questions about his ability to become the playmaker the Titans envisioned when they picked him in the first round of the draft last year.
"It has been horrible,'' Britt said. “I am disappointed in myself. I know I have to get better. They expect me to get better. And that's what I plan on doing.''
Britt is a well-sculpted athlete (think skinnier Terrell Owens) who improved as a route runner last season. His strength and field-stretching speed (which isn’t top class but certainly effective) makes him a tough one-on-one matchup. But the Titans won’t hesitate to start Nate Washington and Justin Gage if Britt’s problems continue.
