@alexmarvez: Agent Pat Dye Jr. says @buffalobills & @Panthers have expressed interest in WR Kenny Britt & visits may be taken with those teams (CONT)

@alexmarvez: Britt already visited with @STLouisRams @Patriots @Redskins. Dye said short-term deal likely; Most important thing is play-time opportunity

I haven't paid attention to Britt in a while. Can someone tell me why I should be excited?

Umm why? Britt's production over the years hasn't warranted any belief that signing him means we'd be set at WR. Especially since this would likely be a 1 year deal.

You might be right, but I'd doubt there'd be enough snaps to go around. Stevie, Goodwin and Woody are going to need to see the field the most, that leaves room for one or two more. TJ has one locked up, Britt slides into the other one (if, and it's a big if) he signs. He's got gobs of talent and has proven it on the field. His issues have been health and off the field.

TJ absolutely does not have a roster spot locked up. Marrone values versatility and TJ does not provide that.

Britt could sign here but it in no way means he even makes the team. I wouldn't even put a second thought into splitting reps just yet.

You might be right, I'm just speculating. And if TJ is shown the door, I'd be quite happy. I just don't think it's going to happen. They've invested too much into him to throw him away now.

Very well may be replacing both hogan and graham

Ditching da'rick and taking a shot on Britt would be a head scratcher though.

This guy has so much potential, skill and yes baggage. I'd be ok with a 1 year deal. Little concerned about the injuries, but he is a phenomenal athlete. TO like ability. He and Goodwin on the outside.

He's da'rick plus a dozen arrests and a torn ACL

Investing a third round pick while significant,  isn't a big enough investment if you're proving not to be good enough to play.

If they sign Britt I don't necessarily think that rules out WR come draft time, but I think it makes a stronger case for someone like Ebron. You put a guy like that in at TE that will demand attention and that seems to be when guys like Stevie, Woods, or Britt are at their best.

Britt can be downright dominant (had 225 yard 3 Td game) but has wasted his career so far.

The da'rick experiment on Britt ?

I think this is a bit unfair to both players.  I don't think Da'rick has been near the problem Britt has been - Britt has done a lot more than Rodgers to warrant a look.
