Earlier this week all Tennessee Titans fans were wondering was if Kenny Britt could come back from his third knee surgery in nine months and be healthy by the time the season started. Yesterday it was reported that Kenny got charged with a DUI in Kentucky and now the knee surgeries seem pretty small. So now I’m left wondering, what’s next for Kenny Britt?
Due to having his left knee scoped at the end of June it seemed earlier this week that Kenny Britt may be a candidate to start the season on the PUP list, meaning he would miss the first six weeks of the season. Yesterday he picked up a DUI charge out of Kentucky which makes that the eighth run in with the law dogs Britt has had since being drafted by the Titans. I don’t think Britt is as wild as Pacman Jones was, but it is clear that he has some problems, the least of which is his bum knees right now.
Mafia Boss Goodell hands out suspensions like its trick or treat candy on Halloween and he is about to be talking with Mr. Britt. I’m pretty sure he’ll be facing a suspension once that meeting goes down. Whether it’s four or more games we don’t know. But you can bet that the Mafia Boss is ready to punish him.
One thing the Titans can do is leave Britt off of the PUP list if he is suspended for the first four games and hope he’s healthy for week five. If the suspension is six or eight games then of course they can do the same thing as well. I have a feeling that the brain trust for the Titans is contemplating many different courses of action right now.
Could they possibly be thinking about cutting Britt? They did draft Kendall Wright in the first round, who they have raved about since OTAs started. I doubt the Titans would cut Britt with training camp being a week away. Maybe they cut him at the end of the season. That is a long way down the road though and there are many variables involved before that bridge is crossed.
One thing is certain though, Britt has more than enough on his plate just dealing with injuries, the recent DUI just compounds his problems. He is a fantastic talent for sure but as someone once said, “There is nothing worse than wasted talent”.
Right now, its a wastin’ away. I hope he gets it figured out.
What say you!
