Rams’ Kenny Britt Expected to Earn $6-$8 Million Per Season For Next Contract

Kenny Britt gave the Los Angeles Rams their first 1,000-yard receiver since 2007 last season.
Last year, the offense of the Los Angeles Rams ranked at the bottom of the league after only averaging 14 points per game, but one of the few highlights was the fact that Kenny Britt gave the team their first 1,000-yard receiver since Torry Holt during the 2007 season. Despite this achievement, all signs point to Britt finding a new home for the 2017 season since the wide receiver will most likely be asking for more money than the Rams are willing to pay him.

Plus, Britt was always considered one of “Jeff Fisher‘s guys” after bringing the wideout on board three years ago. And after Los Angeles parted ways with their former head coach before the end of last season, moving on from Britt may seem like the best option for both parties.
With the start of NFL free agency just a few days away, it will be interesting to see where Britt ends up, and what kind of money he ends up making with his new team, assuming he and Rams do end up parting ways. For now, at least Los Angeles fans have some clue over what type of money Britt could be making with his new deal, courtesy of Yahoo’s Charles Robinson.
Britt may be coming off one of his best NFL seasons, but the verdict is still out there when it comes to whether he would be worth this kind of money. With Britt turning 29 next September, it’s tough not to wonder how many effective years he actually has left in him, especially since last year marked the first time in his career he broke the 1,000-yard receiving mark.

No matter what ends up happening with Britt when it comes to the possibility of joining a new team, at least his new deal won’t even come close to being as ridiculous as the one Los Angeles gave Tavon Austin prior to last season.
