In case you missed it, Kenny Britt is officially out of Tennessee.

The former Tennessee Titans wide out has signed with the St. Louis Rams after almost five years. The one-year contract is worth $1.4 million with $550,000 guaranteed.

Now the question is: should Titans fans be upset? Absolutely not.

Britt was a steal in the 2009 NFL Draft as the 30th overall pick, yielding 42 passes and nine touchdowns in his first two seasons with Tennessee. However, he wasn’t quite the same after tearing his ACL in 2010 (an all-too-common story for many NFL players). “Extracurricular” illegal activities off the field also jeopardized his standing with the Titans.

Last season, there were games where Britt was booed in Tennessee — clearly the fans haven’t been feeling it. Now that Britt has shipped off to St. Louis, there should more room for other wide receivers to grow — Nate Washington and Leon Washington come to mind.

Don’t look at this as a big loss, but rather an opportunity for the offense to evolve.
