St. Louis Rams Re-Sign Kenny Britt


According to’s Ian Rapoport, wide receiver Kenny Britt is in fact staying with the St. Louis Rams for the 2015 NFL season. Rapoport reports that it is a two-year deal worth $14-million with only $4.3-million guaranteed.

Britt bet on himself per se, and it paid off. However, similar to last year’s one year deal, this is still very team friendly with only $4.3-million guaranteed. While the $14-million is a large number, the chances of Britt seeing all $14-million of it, is very slim.

Britt gives newly acquired quarterback, Nick Foles, a deep threat. The Rams receiver lead the team with 13 receptions of 20+ yards in 2014 and over the last two seasons Nick Foles has 44 deep ball completions.

Britt is a big target for Foles and if the Rams receiver can continue to build some chemistry in his second year as a member of the team, the Rams offense has a shot at greatly improving. The Rams will also feature new offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti, who will run the team’s offense.

Britt set a career high with 48 catches to go along with 748 yards and three touchdowns in 2014, the second-best statistical year of his career. Britt’s 748 yards were also the most since Torry Holt left the team.

The 26-year old receiver also proved to be a mentor to Brian Quick who broke out in 2014 and was on pace for Holt and Bruce-like numbers before suffering a collar-bone injury.

With the signing of Britt the Rams can still draft a wide receiver, but likely won’t have to do so until the second or third rounds. That doesn’t completely rule out the idea of Amari Cooper however. Britt just gives the Rams consistency and depth to an otherwise weak receiving corps.
