    Kenny Britt and Jeff Fisher will reunite in St. Louis.

    Britt, the free agent wide receiver who has played his entire five-year career in Tennessee, has agreed to a contract with the Rams, a league source tells PFT. It’s a one-year contract.

    Fisher, the Rams’ head coach, was the head coach of the Titans when they selected Britt in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft, and coached Britt for two years. Britt has had his share of off-field problems, but Fisher clearly believes that Britt’s talent outweighs those concerns.

    Last season the Titans largely phased Britt out of their offense, and he caught just 11 passes for 96 yards. But Britt had more than 700 receiving yards in both of his seasons playing for Fisher, and the Rams would love to see Britt provide that kind of production again.

    .

    Great move. Hopefully Fisher can get his head on straight because he's a beast when he puts his mind to it.

    I never did care much for him. But applaud the Rams for trying to upgrade the team anyway they can. Either It works or it doesn't. Got to have some faith in the front office.

    Now; if he sticks... Who's the odd man out? Or do we carry 6?

    Austin
    Quick
    Bailey
    Givens
    Pettis

    Me; I think we carry 6.

    And... I suspect we might still draft another.

    If he fails, what does it hurt? He has great potential and is barely older than Quick. Hope his knee isn't toast though.

    $550k guaranteed is a good deal for the Rams. Puts a lot of pressure on Britt to perform and stay clean.

    Are you saying you wouldn't root for this underdog?

    I think if Fisher wants to give it a go this is a club friendly contract that could be terminated and not have a huge affect on the bottom line. I don't know what it might mean for the team in terms of draft and how many they carry into regular season. If Britt makes it how do they get another high level rookie in with the other guys? Cut Pettis? Tough decisions but should lead to an improved team.
