Rams sign WR Kenny Britt
Question of the Day
The Rams also added defensive lineman Alex Carrington on Tuesday. In other recent moves, St. Louis added backup quarterback Shaun Hill, linebacker Etienne Sabino and cornerback Greg Reid.
The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Britt was a first-round pick of the Titans in 2009 when Rams coach Jeff Fisher was in Tennessee. He caught 84 passes for 12 touchdowns in his first two seasons, averaging 18.5 yards per catch in 2010. He has since been hindered by a knee injury and personal issues.
Last season, in the final year of his rookie contract, Britt made just three starts and totaled 11 receptions for 96 yards and no touchdowns. In one six-game stretch, he had no catches, and in the final month he became a healthy scratch.
The 25-year-old Britt has had several scrapes with the law, including an arrest in April 2011 in New Jersey following a car chase with police. He was cited for careless driving and fined.
In June 2012 he was cited for resisting arrest in Hoboken, N.J., and in January 2013 he was questioned by police when a close friend was involved in a stabbing. Britt was suspended for the 2012 opener after an arrest that summer for suspicion of DUI.
The Rams spent heavily for two other ex-Titans in free agency the last two seasons, cornerback Cortland Finnegan and tight end Jared Cook. Finnegan was released after missing much of last season with an eye injury and signed with Miami.
