A couple of years ago, Kenny Britt of the Tennessee Titans appeared to be working his way up as one of the top wide receivers in the NFL, but a knee injury from the 2011 season has put his stock on the decline over the last couple of years. Through the first two games of the 2013 season, Britt has struggled once again as he’s only caught five passes for 45 yards and unfortunately–it looks like the wideout may be preparing for his final season in Tennessee.
Britt posted an interesting message to his Twitter account on Tuesday complaining how the Titans were giving him the “Jared Cook card” over his contract situation. If you remember during the offseason, there were issues surrounding Cook and the Titans about whether he should receive the franchise tag as a tight end or a wide receiver, but none of that mattered as he ended up joining the St. Louis Rams for a lot more money.
Now, it appears Britt is dealing with some frustrations over the organization himself, but the two situations are completely different.

For starters, it would be ridiculous for Britt to ask for a massive contract from the Titans considering not only his lack of production over the last two years, but his history of off-the-field issues as well. It would be one thing to reward Britt for all of the hard work he’s displayed on the football field over the last couple of years, but unless he comes through with a big 2013 season–Tennessee shouldn’t be too concerned with how unhappy their once star wideout is.
