Kenny Britt: "Titans Pullin That Jared Cook Card"


Two games into the 2013-14 NFL season and Kenny Britt tweets that?


It sounds like Kenny Britt is unhappy with the Tennessee Titans. Britt, who was the 30th overall pick from the 2009 NFL Draft and someone who has often been labeled as a player with top-five potential, didn’t perform well against the Houston Texans. Britt kept killing drives with holding penalties, drops and other mistakes. One of the holding penalties earned him a temporary grounding on the sideline.

All of that came when DeAndre Hopkins—in his second career NFL game—destroy the Tennessee Titans defensive backfield during the last few drives on Sunday. The Texans drafted Hopkins with the 27th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. He’s already making the difference that Titans fans have waited four-plus years for with Britt.

What made this so strange was the immediate aftermath. Within one minute, Britt started giving away free stuff:



Britt has previously given stuff away with “Britt Trivia.”  But why make that “Titans Pullin That Jared Cook Card” comment right before he does it for Sep. 17?

Too much drama for me. Just silly. As long as it doesn’t turn into a locker room issue, I don’t care anymore. There’s little-to-no chance he gets a long-term extension so hopefully he finishes strong. Wishful thinking, perhaps?

    Yeah… IDK what he’s doing. That guy should have his people running his social media accounts. It’s a shame to see him wasting his own talent. Be a bummer to see him go. Here’s to hoping Hunter busts out. Be interesting to see when they start to involve him in the game plan.

    It’s just extremely frustrating. I always defended Britt and said he could do a lot if he put his mind to it and focused, but maybe that just isn’t possible. I’m thinking it’s finally time to move on. Not happy to see it happen, but it’s probably for the best.

    My brother is a Cowboys fan and, like clockwork, every time I’d give him 5h!t about Dez, Britt would be on the news for something. Post-injury, he’s not breaking coverage like he used to and, when he does, he’s dropping crucial balls. I was truly disappointed to see Cook (and Finnegan, before him) go, but can’t say the same for Britt at this stage. Unlike those two, right now he’s still not lived up to his potential.
