Kenny Britt is still on the market and even though he did not have the most productive year last year, 11 catches for just 96 yards, he is still attracting a lot of interest through teams that need a bigger wide-out presence.
Could Britt bring that presence to the Bills?
Britt had his best years in 2009 and 2010, being able to put up similar numbers in catches (42) and receiving yards (701, 745). Although in 2010 he was able to bring in 9 TDs, 6 more than the year before.
Britt has missed a number of games throughout his career, playing only 3 games in 2011, 14 in 2012 and 12 games in his last two years, with none of the years matching up to what was done in his first two (2009 and 2010).
Britt is still a player that can produce, but his stock is extremely low right now. Perfect time for a struggle offensive team to buy low and possibly sell high later. A short-term contract is also something that Britt is looking for and it is perfect for the Bills to take a chance and let go later if it doesn’t workout. This is also a type of contract that the Bills could back-load with production incentives, which could also bring Britt’s eyes this way as he is looking for playing time to be his biggest contract negotiation.
Britt has something to prove and with a low stock and short term contract, Buffalo and Britt could not be in better agreement for each other. There are other teams that are also looking and Britt such as the Patriots, Carolina, St. Louis, Washington and Seattle. Buffalo has also shown interest in Britt and his agent says that there is the possibility of visits scheduled with Carolina and Buffalo.
“In an interview with Alex Marvez and Phil Savage on Sirius XM NFL Radio, Britt’s agent, Pat Dye, said the Buffalo Bills have also expressed interest in the former Titans first-round draft pick.
The interest from Buffalo is in addition to interest from the St. Louis Rams, Washington Redskins, New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers. Britt has already taken visits to St. Louis, Washington and New England. Dye said that visits to Carolina and Buffalo remain a possibility as well.”
I think Britt would be a decent fit in Buffalo, and the Bills will not be putting too much into Britt and possibly getting a lot out of him. It could almost be similar to the Shawn Merriman contract that Buffalo did a couple of years ago; incentive based. Wouldn’t hurt to bring him in for training camp.
