Kenny Britt To The Bills?

The Tennessee Titans are open to trading wide receiver Kenny Britt and with the relationship between the Buffalo Bills and safety Jairus Byrd slowly heading south, a potential trade between the two could be possible.

Kenny Britt is in his 5th year of his NFL career with the Titans but has struggled to catch the ball and make plays due to the big play ability of rookie Justin Hunter and wide receiver Kendall Wright. Britt is not all to blame, especially with Jake Locker’s inability to stay healthy, but outside sources and Britt himself believe his time with the Titans is coming to a close. According to an NFL Network “Around The League” podcast , Britt ” has been plagued by penalties and drops. He’s also failed to consistently separate from man coverage ever since the first of his three knee surgeries starting in 2011.”

Jairus Byrd has been nursing a foot injury since his return but has not played a down since training camp; to be honest it seems that Byrd is milking his injury in hopes of a trade. However, Jairus Byrd is still one of the best safeties in the league and teams like the titans would be wise to add playmakers like Byrd to their defense. With his worth being more than Britt, the Buffalo Bills could gain future picks in next years draft to add to the foundation already established by Doug Marrone and his coaching staff.

The Buffalo Bills could use a veteran at wide receiver alongside Stevie Johnson to help carry the weight of their rookie quarterback EJ Manuel. Manuel has shown some progress in the past four weeks, but he is learning the ropes of being a starting quarterback in the NFL, meaning there will be some rough patches along the way. Britt’s experience and size, at 6-3, 223 pounds make him a huge target in the redzone and a solid blocker for the run game. Due to his performance this season he would also be a cheap addition to the Buffalo Bills, who could pitch for another second and third round pick from the Titans for next year’s draft.  A solid investment for a player who surely does not want any part of the team. What do you think?

    And why exactly would the Bills be dumb enough to trade a Pro Bowl-level talent for a guy who can’t hold onto the ball, and has had three knee surgeries? Do you think you’re dealing with the OLD Bills? Got a flash message for you – YOU’RE NOT. Not any more. THIS team, and THIS coaching staff, aren’t the type to make dumb deals like this any more. And Buffalo doesn’t have a problem with injuries at the WR position; their problem is running out of CBs. But they STILL managed to beat the Ravens – who were in a pretty large game last season called….oh, wait a minute, it’s on the tip of my tongue—oh, yeah: the SUPER BOWL.

    So, let me ask you again; WHY would Buffalo make a dumb trade like this????

  • Zachary Alexander

    First of all, any trade the Buffalo Bills make with Jairus Byrd should allow them to walk away with their pockets fat. Byrd is a young, pro bowl caliber player which means teams would need to give more than just a player in return. They would need to give us draft picks.

    I agree the Buffalo Bills do have a greater need at the cornerback position; however there aren’t any teams out there who are going to trade their top notch receiver for our top 5 safety. No matter where the Bills trade Byrd they will not gain a player of equal caliber. I believe this we can agree upon.

    That being said, the Bills pretty much lose nothing by trading Byrd for Britt; Byrd does not want to be here and we already have a decent wideout situation with Stevie, Woods, Graham, Chandler, and our running game. Britt would be cheap and expendable while his upside is still worth something as it is the only reason why he is still on the Titans.

    If the Bills were to trade for Britt, they should receive draft picks no later than round three. Which would mean we can draft a cornerback, linebacker, or whatever position they deem necessary ON TOP of the picks we have already. If you are a person who watches football regularly than you should know that analysts believe that next years draft will be very deep in talent.

    I agree if the Bills were ever to trade Byrd they would be going after somebody A. They need and B. Equal or more value. Besides that I’m still that guy that would tag him again and make him sit because I still believe this guy can play and is not because of the contract situation.

    Well let’s face it Byrd is holdlng all the aces and the Bills don’t even have a pair of threes. The Bills got Byrd mad in the off season and Byrd is going make them pay, and pay dearly. . He’s milking the injury because he doesn’t want to ever put on a Bills uniform ever again. Because the Bills have NO leverage they will be forced to trade a battleship for a row boat. Byrd is an all pro, Britt is a fourth string receiver. Come to think of it, can anyone remember if the Bills EVER WON a trade in their history. Lynch for a 4th round pick. That was another battle ship for a row boat. Bills take one step FORWARD and two steps BACK! Then people wonder why they haven’t made the playoffs this entire CENTURY !!!!!
