The resurgence of Kenny Britt was an interesting story line in 2016:

The Los Angeles Rams had a completely dysfunctional offense during the 2016 season but Kenny Britt managed to somehow still be productive. Britt hauled in 1,002 receiving yards and believe it or not that was the first time in Britt’s career that he went over the 1,000 yards receiving mark in a season. Kenny Britt is entering his 9th season so he has had plenty of time to achieve that feat but never was able to do so until last year with the Rams. Kenny Britt actually signed with the Cleveland Browns during the off-season and now the veteran receiver will focus on making plays in Hue Jackson’s offense. With Corey Coleman and Kenny Britt the Browns have two outside receivers that can deliver results near the sidelines. Which means the Browns have a chance to at least threaten opposing defenses through the air in 2017. Losing Terrelle Pryor certainly hurts this receiving core and it would have been nice to have Coleman, Pryor, and Britt for trips sets. However the Brown still have the NFL Draft to improve their roster and we know Hue Jackson is an offensive minded coach. Even though the Browns are going to draft Myles Garrett number 1 overall, they still could take a few offensive players in the draft to solidify that side of the ball. Overall though It’s a good fit for Kenny Britt because Jackson will get the most out of Britt. That could eventually extend Britt’s career and that makes it a good business move for the newly acquired receiver. When you have your best NFL season 8 years into your career you want to capitalize on that success and focus on longevity. Kenny Britt’s agent is definitely thinking that if Kenny Britt isn’t and expect to see this guy in the fold for at least the next 4 years. That’s because Britt signed a 4 year $32.5 million dollar contract with Cleveland and so it’s safe to say he will be in Ohio for the foreseeable future.
