Titans | Kenny Britt's role to increase?
Thu, 17 Oct 2013 10:55:07 -0700
Despite playing just two snaps in the team's Week 6 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt could be in line for more work after head coach Mike Munchak said he's proud of the receiver. Britt has just seven catches for 59 yards on the season after being demoted for dropped passes and sloppy play last month. "He needs to play more. He needs to get 20 snaps," Munchak said. "I'd like to give him opportunities to make plays. Maybe he's not starting, and maybe he's not in the starting groups. But he needs to be in the mix, because the guy still has talent. We still believe in him, and want to give him opportunities even if he has dropped some balls. But we need to play him more, and I think he'll rise up to the occasion." The Titans have fielded trade offers for Britt, but Munchak said "we have no plans" to trade him before the deadline Oct. 29.
Britt probably doesn't deserve to be owned on any rosters outside of the deepest leagues, but there is still hope down the road. Perhaps Britt regains some value with more PT and when Jake Locker returns after the bye week in Week 9.
