    Why pay him more than the market rate? They have to cover themselves just in case he can't get out of his funk. But they're hoping he returns to the form he showed the last time he played for Fisher. At worst he can show quick how to use his frame to his advantage.

    This is what I was talking about in another thread when I had said that Britt's issues go beyond effort. His knees have taken away his explosiveness. He's slow out of his breaks, he's slow off the line, and he wasn't leaping like he did before the injuries.

    Fisher can fix the effort, but I have my doubts that physically Kenny Britt will ever come close to reaching his potential.

    Funny, I watched that movie last night.

    We need to see a little luck in the receiver department. Guys have break-out, comebacks, step up, make a name, get-it every frickin year.

    The Rams are due!

    Givens is going to have a monster year. Britt just around for vet leadership and to push Pettis IMO

    Hope you're right, as I told X it's money I'm more than happy to give up if Quick has a fantastic season.

    Just to be clear we are talking ROD money not really money?

    Yup. If the move to "smash mouth" began at the Jacksonville game, his numbers from that point on were 34 catches for 431 yards and 3 td
    I'd think that the upgrade to Bradford for a full season with him would improve that, but not by too much

    I think Britt is just around to give Fisher one of "his guys" with the WR core. Cook shoulda been that guy last year but the spread was abysmal. If Britt makes the team, its not for straight up better play on the field IMO. He'd have to be offering leadership of some variety. That said, keep sleeping on Givens. I say he's gonna be a beast this year

    If he doubles his career high in catches, he'd finish with 36. On one hand, some would say doubling your career high is a "breakout" on the other hand....

    Britt's deal is only one year and only 550K is guaranteed, the rest of the 1.4 mil is incentives. So two things come to mind.....

    They knew Bailey was going to get suspended and bought a cheap insurance policy AND/OR they figured he was worth having as a bridge while the younger guys come on this year.

    Low risk signing for sure and if he gets cut a couple of weeks after Bailey is back no great loss. If he is playing well then it's a big bonus.

    Personally I think Britt needs to start fast and look good in camp from day one, or he's gone. Fish isn't going to mess around with him. As some have noted he probably was brought in to make up for Bailey's suspension, but the problem with him is he isn't going to make a difference on special teams. So I don't see the Rams keeping him around for long unless he wins a spot higher vice lower on that depth chart.

    I want to see him get out-competed by Quick and Givens both having monster camps. I just don't like being in a position where we are counting on Britt. No thanks.

    Agreed. And I think this will happen. I have a good feeling about both of those guys this year (Quick and Givens). I see the starters towards the middle or end of the season being Tavon, Quick, Givens/Bailey. Bailey could interchange with Tavon or Givens, but I really do think Quick is gonna step it up this year.
