Rams bringing back Kenny Britt on two-year deal

The St. Louis Rams will hang on to free-agent receiver Kenny Britt.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that the receiver is staying with the Rams on a two-year, $9.125 million deal worth up to $14 million, per a source informed of the situation. Britt receives $4.3 million guaranteed.

NFL Media columnist Michael Silver first reported Wednesday that the team was expected to re-sign the 26-year-old pass-catcher.

Keeping Britt adds some semblance of consistency after a bevy of offseason changes on the offensive side of the ball. The Rams added a new offensive coordinator in Frank Cignetti before the team swappedSam Bradford for Nick Foles on Tuesday.

The enigmatic Britt set a career high with 48 catches to go along with 748 yards and three touchdown snags in 2014 -- the second-best statistical year of his career. However, he topped 70 yards in just two contests.

The Rams will take another spin with the one-two combination of Tavon Austin and the 6-foot-3 Britt -- No. 51 on Around The NFL's top 101 free agents list -- for at least another year. Jeff Fisher could be in the market to add another wideout in a deep draft.

The Rams also announced they re-signed free agent tight end Lance Kendricks.
