Tim McManus of ESPN writes that the Eagles could be an appealing option for free agent WR Kenny Britt due to them having a potential franchise quarterback in Carson Wentz and his receivers coach Mike Groh.
McManus points out that Britt has played with a long list of underwhelming quarterbacks since entering the NFL, so it’s possible that Wentz’s promising play from last year could factor into the equation for free agents such as Britt.
The Eagles will clearly be in the market for free agent help and they’ve been connected to almost every available option in recent weeks such as DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, Pierre Garcon and Kenny Stills.
Britt may not offer them the deep-threat their offense has been missing, but he’s been a pretty solid receiver with good size.
Britt, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Titans back in 2009. He spent five years in Tennessee before signing on with the Rams in 2014.
The elected to bring Britt back on a two-year, $9.15 million contract that included $4.3 million in March of 2015. He’s now in position to test the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2016, Britt appeared in 15 games for the Rams and caught 68 passes for 1,002 yards receiving and five touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 39 receiver out of 119 qualifying players.
