The St. Louis Rams have been searching for a goto #1 receiver for years. Not since they had the likes of Tory Holt and Isaac Bruce have they been able to keep a top-flight receiver on the field. And now, for a mere $1.4 million dollars, they bring in former Tennessee Titan WR Kenny Britt.
Britt, who played for now Rams head coach Jeff Fisher, has a chance to make up to $2.9 million with bonuses. The one-year deal is a tryout for himself and really shows that no team was willing to give him much. His best bet was in St. Louis to reunite with Fisher for a chance at big money the next off season.
Kenny has shown flashes of brilliance in his much maligned career and could be a team’s number one if he put forth the effort it takes to be THE guy. We’ll see if this situation can also help make the Ram’s offense more dynamic. With Sam Bradford coming back healthy and Tavon Austin‘s big play ability, the offense could have sleeper potential in fantasy leagues.
Just don’t count on Britt giving you any more than he has in the past. He has a tendency to disappoint his owners at every single possible moment.
