Kenny Britt Rumor

249 posts in this topic

As a Raven's fan... I would LOVE to see this happen, even though I doubt it's anything more than just word of mouth. I'm not worried about off-the-field troubles.... Let's not forget Ray Lewis's incident... And the fact we picked up Donte Stallworth in the past after he pleaded to DUI Manslaughter... Injuries... Not too worried about that. All it takes is one season, and whether you want to admit it or not... Kenny is an upgrade from Jacoby and Brandon. If for a 4th, 5th, or 6th rounder... I'd go for it. I'd still like to see Mellette and Brown out there on the field too. Either way... In Ozzie We Trust


Off the field issues is just half of it. He cant stay healthy and as a result has contributed very little in his career to the tune of 19 TDs in 4 years with half coming in 2010 alone. 5th/6th round flyer and Im cool with it.

Yeah. It's a big if, but just like how it is in all sports... Sometimes a change in scenery can spark a player as far as performance wise and efforts to get and stay healthy. If San Fran can snatch Anquan for a 6th after what he did last year, doubt we'd have to give up more than that for Kenny Britt. It's a low risk, high reward imo

I personally think we should sign Dwyer as RB. He is a local kid and would love the opportunity to play his heart out for us when needed.

I'm actually really happy with our receiver situation right now and the Tandon Doss cut. I have always witnessed our organization give low-round/undrafted rookies opportunities to gain adequate playing time on the defense, but never really the offense. I love seeing these underdogs come in and grab the league by storm, similar to what RB Alfred Morris and WR Victor Cruz have done. I really believe Marlon Brown has the ability to play in this league, and to think that his chemistry with Joe has only just begun. This season our offense is going to really take form under Caldwell, and I am very excited. However, I do believe the Flacco and his receivers will perform better later in the season as the weeks go on. Can't wait! :)

Uh....Isaac Redman is the local kid out of Bowie State. Dwyer is from Georgia.

Numbers don't always tell the whole story. For example you say he's contributed very little with only 19TDs in 4yrs. But Boldin only produced 14TDs in 3yrs and half came in one year(2010), but no way would any of us say Boldin hasn't been a big contributor for us, even without the big playoff run.

I'm not saying Britt is Boldin, but I do think the guy is much better then many give him credit for. Again you mention how he hasn't done much in 4yrs but it's really only a 3yr career because injury took his 2011 season. Btw he was really looking like 2011 would be his breakout season with dominant performances over the first 2 week before injury hit in week 3.

Also we have to remember what this guy was surround by and the QBs throwing him the ball. Last year was the only season where he didn't produce at least 16.7ypc and imo it's because he didn't have his full explosiveness back. I'm hearing people say if he's healthy then he's a upgrade to our WR corp. Imo he's an upgrade right now, but if he's 100% then he and Torrey would make up a scary duo and quickly become one of the best in the AFC.

depends on the asking price , if they want a 6th or a 7th why not ? we ll be flush with draft picks next draft with all the FA that we lost .....if the price is right id pull the trigger , but id also put him on a short leash....

How do you make a guy like Britt turn into a player like we need though? Who do we need? Torrey Smith is going to have a great year. Since that's the case and Mellette and Brown are starting to show potential, I'm not too concerned about the receiving corps. Jacoby Jones has yet to show me he's #2 material and Stokley is really old. But we have two talented tight ends in Ed Dickson and Dallas Clark, being that he finally improves his chemistry with Flacco. So...what's the right price for a guy like Britt? When we're not too solid...but not shaky?

This is not going to happen. The guy is lazy and injury prone. Let's not get into the cam Cameron offense and keep taking washed up/old receivers, while our young wr's take a back seat. We have a ton of talent in Marlon Brown. He will be our number two wide out soon. We don't need a washed up Kenny Britt. Aaron Mellette has talent also.

I agree that it's not going to happen, but you do realize Britt is only 24, right?

Well I'm screwed

Poor Nurps....

 

Anyway, trade NOT happening. Unless the Titans release him and he makes it to us in the Waivers somehow

Yea I know how old he is but I was talking about the past wide receivers we got via trade. Kenny Britt is young but that knee scares the hell out of me. One of many worries he has. We have plenty of talent in Brown and Mellette that we don't need to delay their progress. I really think Brown can take the number two spot. We don't need Kenny Britt at all.

I'd rather stick with the WRs we have. The young ones look good, but that was preseason. I can't wait to see how the offense looks without the "vanilla" preseason game plan.

I said this in a roster moves thread a week or more ago thinking that we were trying to trade Doss or LQ at the last minute for a late rd pick to package in with something else for a guy like Britt.

If the price is right I can't understand anyone not wanting to roll the dice on a guy like Britt.

I hear the health and behavior concerns but I think being here with Rice he would develop similar habits. There a lot to be said for that level of comfort. He would take that next step in becoming a true professional.

He's only 24 and he's not going to command a huge payday for the reasons everyone has mentioned. I think if we traded for him it wouldn't only be if we could extend him 2 more years without guaranteeing too much.

I mean where is it that people think he's going to get a huge pay day? The titans have spent the past 2 drafts replacing him and no team is going to pay legit starter money to an injury prone WR with behavior issues. He CAN be reasonably extended.

And I don't think he'd stunt the growth of our young guys. I don't think a move like this would happen and we would keep Jacoby. It's not like they're slated to get a ton as it is. You've already got Torrey, Jacoby, Stokley, and likely Deonte ahead of these guys. What did our 5-6th receivers do last year? Love their potential and would love even more to see them thrust into big roles, just don't see it happening even with our CURRENT roster, so I don't see it as an excuse not to make a move for a guy like Britt.

Facts are Britt has an injury and behavioral history but also has legitimate monster potential as our defense can personally attest to. Facts are also we don't bring him in unless its a trade with minimal compensation, a low risk/low pay extension, and ray rices guarantee that he's going to babysit his old buddy to make sure he's keeping his body right and staying out of trouble. It's also likely that Britt would be a much happier man playing with an old friend who is a leader on this team, a winning team, with a QB who can likely make a guy like Britt a monster WR.

The red flags are there, which is exactly why the upside is so high. I just think if you have the opportunity to add a guy with game changing talent to your roster without giving much up you do it, especially when you have the foundation and the one player who may be the best fit to help a guy like Britt reach his maximum.

Really you bring up stallworth? Despicable off the field and useless on it. Worst free agent this team has ever signed IMO. Britt it is hard to say. If he is top notch medically why would the titans trade him? Plus off field concerns. Doesn't seem like a harbaugh guy. I would have been more interested in Washington instead of stokley

Britt was a nice player a few years ago, explosive, big....but I dont know about him now, he's had knee surgery and had some problems off the field, I haven't heard anything about this rumor so I seriously doubt it's true...

 

besides we dont need anymore WRs
