Kenny Britt will reportedly leave the Los Angeles Rams and join the Cleveland Browns on a four-year, $32.5 million deal.
Despite becoming the team’s first 1,000-yard receiver since 2007 last year, all signs pointed to the Los Angeles Rams parting ways with wide receiver Kenny Britt once free agency officially got underway. Now, it appears the former Rams receiver will be joining a team that finished with a 1-15 record during the 2016 season in the Cleveland Browns.
Even though deals can’t officially be announced until late Thursday when the new NFL league year begins, early reports indicate that Britt is heading to the Browns on a deal that will pay the wide receiver $32.5 million over the next four years. When considering early signs pointed to Britt joining the Philadelphia Eagles, this move came as quite the surprise, as it’s safe to say the hefty amount of money obviously played a key role in his decision.
After winning one game all of last year, there was no question the Browns needed help at wide receiver, but to pay Britt this type of money comes as a huge surprise when looking at all of the issues at quarterback. As for Los Angeles, this decision by Britt was easier to deal with since it’s been expected for a while now since he was considered one of “Jeff Fisher‘s guys” that joined the team three years ago.

Of course, with Britt officially out of the picture, that means it’s time for the Rams to make some moves of their own in the passing game to help provide Jared Goff with more reliable weapons heading into his sophomore season. With all of the top wide receivers quickly finding new homes, here’s to hoping Los Angeles makes some sort of big move at wide receiver by the end of the day.
