New Jersey police want to question Britt about the stabbing of a close friend. While Britt reportedly dropped off his friend at the hospital on Sunday morning (Jan. 13), police claim that Britt wouldn't answer questions about why or how his friend was stabbed. The victim also refused to cooperate.
There was another incident that came afterward. Supposedly, there was an altercation. A gunshot was heard. Police believe that Britt was in the area of that feud. Britt won't comment on that situation.
Kenny Britt was taken in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Since then, he has nine police incidents. In 2012, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him for one game. Goodell ruled that Britt violated the NFL's personal conduct policy. In addition, Britt has two incidents on social media. He wasn't punished for them.
This isn't the way to start an off-season before a contract year. After the 2013-14 season, Britt will become a free agent. He has never lived up to his potential because of legal problems and injuries. For his career, Britt has 146 catches for 2,354 yards and 19 touchdowns.
Without Britt, the Titans have Nate Washington and Kendall Wright. They could draft another receiver, sign a free agent, or go with Damian Williams and Lavelle Hawkins.
Until more details are released, the Titans won't react. That's the right thing to do. However, if this was anything more than Britt trying to save his friend, then why would the organization keep him in 2013? Wouldn't that create a nightmare for public relations? Why does Britt keep getting into these situations?
