Will Witherspoon: Kenny Britt will be a star with Rams

The St. Louis Rams took turns showering praise on free-agent acquisition Kenny Britt during offseason practices.

It should come as no surprise, then, that former Rams linebacker Will Witherspoon believes Britt will finally produce his long-awaited breakout season in 2014.

"I think the addition of Kenny Britt will be a huge boost for the Rams offense," Witherspoon told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Thursday. "I expect him to blossom into a star."

Witherspoon no longer plays for the Rams. He didn't witness Britt's offseason work. It's worth noting, though, that Witherspoon played with Britt in Tennessee and presumably holds close ties to coach Jeff Fisher after following him from Nashville to St. Louis.

Early in Britt's career, he showed glimpses of All-Pro potential. Since undergoing multiple knee operations, though, his game film has been among the least impressive in the league.

Still just 25 years old, Britt is certainly capable of breathing life into his NFL career if his speed and cutting ability have truly returned to 2010 levels. His fresh start with the Rams will be one of the stories for fantasy footballers to track in training camp and preseason action next month.
