Player Spotlight: Kenny Britt


Standing at 6-3, 223 pounds, Kenny Britt is arguably the best wide receiver the St. Louis Rams have. The 26-year-old is entering into his seventh NFL season and is looking to take his game to place it has never been.

Coming out of high school, Britt was ranked a 4-star recruit and choose to play his ball at Rutgers University. Britt played three years at Rutgers and compiled two 1,200 yard plus seasons and 17 career touchdowns.

Britt opted to forgo his senior season and entered the 2009 NFL draft, where he was selected with the 30th overall pick in the 1st round by the Tennessee Titans.

While with the Titans, Britt never caught more than 45 passes and never eclipsed the 800-yard mark for a season.

In his third year in the NFL, Britt tore his MCL, causing him to miss 13 games in the 2011 season, and had several off the field incidents involving police spanning into 2012.

In his final season with the Titans, Brit caught just 11 balls for 96 yards before signing a 1-year contract with the Rams in 2014.

In his first year with the Rams, Britt caught a career high 48 passes for 748 yards and three touchdowns.

In reward, the Rams inked Britt to a two-year deal worth upwards of 14 million dollars with 4.3 million guaranteed. Britt will be 29 years old when his contract expires.

So where does this leave Britt heading into the 2015 season? The last good quarterback Britt had to throw him the ball was Vince Young in his first two years in the league. Now, Britt will have Nick Foles to pass him the rock. This bodes well for Britt. He finally has a stable quarterback to give him the ball, and a good supporting cast of receivers around him to keep opposing teams from double teaming him.

It’s safe to say that as long as Britt stays out of trouble, he has a staring wide receiver job with the Rams for the next two years, but the rest is up to him. Will Britt reach the 800-yard mark for the first time in his career? My gut says yes, but only time well tell.

Here is my projected numbers for Britt in 2015 – ( 60 receptions, 850 yards, 6 touchdowns)
