Kenny Britt has found a new home.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the wide receiver has agreed to a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the St. Louis Rams, according to a source involved in the deal. The contract has a maximum value of $2.9 million if all incentives are met.
ESPN's Adam Schefter and ProFootballTalk first reported the agreement.
Britt represents one of the great curiosities of free agency. The wide receiver showed flashes of All-Pro ability in 2010 and 2011 with the Tennessee Titans, but knee problems and off-the-field issues have taken center stage in recent years.
Britt's modest deal with the Rams represents that uncertainty, but also gives him an opportunity to rebuild his brand in a new setting. The Rams have a crowded depth chart at wideout, with Chris Givens, Tavon Austin, Brian Quick, Austin Pettis and Stedman Bailey all in the mix. Britt and Quick are most likely to be competing for a role this summer.
Consider this a low risk/high upside signing for the Rams. Britt was a disappointment for the Titans, but is just 25 years old and blessed with undeniable ability. If he knees hold up and his head is screwed on straight, he could represent an offseason steal for Snead.
