ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Wide receiver Kenny Britt will be in St. Louis for two more years. According to ESPN, Britt and the St. Louis Rams have agreed to terms on a 2-year/$14 million contract, $4.3 million guaranteed.
Britt was the Rams leading receiver last year with 748 yards, the second-most of his career. He also produced 748 receiving yards, the second-highest of his career and the first time he has had over 700 receiving yards since 2010, when he played for the Tennessee Titans. During his time with the Titans, Britt declined after the 2010 season. Poor on-the-field performances coupled with off-the-field issues made it hard for Britt to prove he could have a better start with a new team once he became a free agent after the 2013 season.
Head Coach Jeff Fisher, who was the Titans head coach during most of Britt’s time there, gave Britt a second chance with a one year “prove it” contract. Britt had a slow start last season, only catching one pass in the first two games. But Britt became a much bigger threat to opposing defenses after Week 2, hauling in 19 catches over the following three games.
