    I appreciate your interest in my life but I don't go back to college until tomorrow evening. Am spending a couple days at home with the family for spring break after spending most of the week at the beach with friends. I can link you to my facebook if you need to know anything else. ;)

    Here's my issue:
    1) Not recently. He got injured and hasn't been the same since. He was the least effective WR in football last year.
    2) While true, his amazing start to the year in 2011 that people always cite came after Fisher was fired.
    3) Possibly but I don't really feel like we have a lot of veteran leadership in our locker-room. This is a pretty young team. And there's potential there for Britt to be a bad influence on our young guys.

    I agree with everything you said Minus number 3. If our guys as adults, can't make their own decisions and are willing to jeopardize their careers because Kenny Britt influenced them we have far bigger issues. At the end of the day "bad influences" are everywhere, especially when your a 20 something year old millionaire with a high profile job they will be influenced to make poor choices at some point regardless and it will be up to them and them alone to proceed.

    That being said, everyone of your points is valid, it is entirely possible he's done, he's still a head case, etc.. but it is also entirely possible he's matured, fisher knows how to use him, etc... the potential is there, he's shown flashes of it, what he choses to do with it/what happens next is up in the air. And as i mentioned before, that kenny britt that looked so promising a few years ago would be the best WR on our team

    and that brings us full circle, if both scenarios are entirely plausible, and the cost of seeing the outcome is very low, why would you oppose such a move?

    The Nashville Tennessean's Jim Wyatt believes free agent Kenny Britt "still has a chance to make an impact in the NFL," and still "definitely has the skills" if his knees cooperate.
    Wyatt has covered Britt his entire career, and we've never seen him give rose-colored or phony analysis. Wyatt also says Britt is "a good guy," and not the bad seed "some think he is." Britt obviously lacked confidence and concentration last year, but there aren't many players more worth a cheap, one-year "prove-it" flier. Britt's talent hasn't evaporated and he's still only 25.

    As Jrry32 said, if we're going to roll the dice on a guy with potential and bad knees, might as well get DX back. At least he doesn't have off the field issues too.

    I would rather see Nicks in for a tryout than Britt. Britt had a knee problem and has not been the same since. In addition to that his off field problems are more headaches why risk his bad influence over other fringe players?

    in 2011 basically got 300 yards and 3 tds in 2 games before injuring his knee in the 3rd game of the season.
    2012 - as do many players, couldn't get going first year back from knee injury
    2013 - both britt and the team gave up on each other.

    this has all the makings of the moss to patriots scenario. i can understand why the rams are having a look.

    ^I like where this is going.

    Not a thing wrong with a low risk high reward scenario as long as we're not betting the farm it'll turn out well. We are obviously not counting on Britt, we're just hoping and observing. His contract won't be much so it's all good.

    Jrry talking to a girl, "You're logic is flawed... And you're breast size to hip ratio is totally off!... Jesus, do you actually think pink nail polish matches that blouse?!?..." It goes on and on until the poor girl has no more self confidence to speak of. He then intimates he has beer in his dorm room...

    No. No. No. Wasn't saying he was gay. I was just imagining how his analytical prowess translates over into picking up girls. The example given is taken from "neg" theory. Yes, there are theories around this stuff. That said, I'm sure he's doing fine. Following a linear progression. (And for the record; negs do not work.)
