Kenny Britt caught one pass for five yards in St. Louis' second preseason game versus Green Bay on Saturday.
Britt was targeted twice on the afternoon; Sam Bradford missed a wide-open Britt down the right sideline for what would have been a gain of 30-plus yards. Britt started opposite Brian Quick. Tavon Austin manned the slot. Britt played two series but injured his left shoulder on his five-yard catch. He remained on the sideline with an ice pack on the dinged up shoulder. It doesn't appear serious. Aug 16 - 5:17 PM

Kenny Britt says he's finally fully recovered both physically and mentally from his 2011 ACL tear.

Britt was on his way to NFL superstar status when he blew out his knee three weeks into the 2011 season. He should have been back to 100 percent by 2013 at the absolute latest, but a well-chronicled lack of maturity likely contributed to his slow progress. Still just 25 and now reunited with Jeff Fisher, Britt is having a monster training camp and is penned in as the Rams' No. 1 receiver. His ADP has crept into the 11th round.

Kenny Britt started Friday night's preseason opener against the Saints.

Britt didn't see a single target, however, but played much of the first half opposite Brian Quick and Stedman Bailey. The soon-to-be 26-year-old appears to have a big leg up on the rest of the Rams receivers and has had a strong camp. Britt is the leader in the clubhouse for starting X receiver duties come Week 1.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says the Kenny Britt love coming from Rams camp is "very real."

Reunited with Jeff Fisher, Britt appears to have his once-promising career back on track. RapSheet says he's gotten responses of "a lot left in the tank" and even "leader" when asking about the former Titan. Britt, who has been running as a starter and impressing with his physical ability, is firmly on our flier radar. The Rams are desperate for someone to emerge as a go-to guy for Sam Bradford.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora says Kenny Britt "seems like a changed man" and "looks explosive again coming out of cuts."

La Canfora was at Rams camp late last week. Britt has been getting a ton of run with the first-team offense opposite Brian Quick with Tavon Austin in the slot and working out of the backfield. Britt is still just 25 and is three years removed from tearing his ACL. He appears rejuvenated after linking back up with his former coach, Jeff Fisher. Britt is worth a gamble at his 15th-round ADP.

Kenny Britt and Brian Quick are getting the majority of first-team wideout reps during Sunday's practice.

Chris Givens is spending most of his time with the second unit. It's an interesting development, as we know Britt has the physical tools to be an on-field dominator when his head is on straight. It appears Jeff Fisher is going to give his old friend every opportunity to resurrect his career in this barren receiving corps. Britt's ADP is around the 15th round right now.

Coach Jeff Fisher said Kenny Britt has done a "great job" at OTAs, and has had no setbacks physically.

So far, so good on Britt's fresh start with old pal Fisher. He's kept his nose clean off the field, and isn't having any issues with his troublesome knee while impressing at non-contact practices. There's plenty of opportunity in the Rams' wayward receiving corps, especially for a player of Britt's physical gifts. We're still taking a wait-and-see approach because he was one of the worst receivers in the NFL last year, committing five penalties and dropping four passes in the first four games alone.

ESPN Rams blogger Nick Wagoner reports Kenny Britt has earned the nickname "The Incredible Hulk" from some of his new teammates.

Britt, who stands in at 6-foot-3, 223 pounds, snagged two long touchdown passes in Thursday's OTAs session. Per Wagoner, his "subsequent reactions" spurred two minor scuffles. Coming off a lost 2012-13, Britt has reportedly shown well since the Rams reported for voluntary work. The team's official website breathlessly reported Thursday that Britt "looked every bit like the talent he displayed in 2009-10." That's big-time hyperbole, but it's not outside the realm of possibility that Britt rebounds to WR3 status in fantasy leagues. The numbers are there for the taking in St. Louis' unsettled receiver corps.

Kenny Britt's one-year deal with the Rams contains just $550,000 in guaranteed money.

The guaranteed money comes in the form of a $50,000 signing bonus and $500,000 of his $1 million base salary. There's plenty more available in incentives, which in theory should keep Britt motivated. He'll get a $100,000 roster bonus if he's on the 53-man roster for the first game and then $6,250 every time he's on the 46-man gameday roster. It's a low-risk deal for the Rams.

Rams signed WR Kenny Britt, formerly of the Titans, to a one-year, $1.4 million contract.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Britt can earn up to $2.9 million. It's a minimal gamble by the Rams. There's no denying Britt's talent, as he has previously flashed No. 1 receiver skills. But we haven't seen it much since 2010. Britt has battled knee issues the past few years and could possibly be damaged goods. He also hasn't been a model citizen, racking up multiple off-field incidents. However, Britt is still just 25 years old. He could easily become the Rams' No. 1 receiver in 2014. At 6-foot-3 and 223 pounds, Britt is an ideal X receiver.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk that free agent Kenny Britt is "still evaluating his options."

GM Les Snead hinted Tuesday that the Rams were close to an agreement with the ex-Titan, but nothing's developed over the past 48 hours. The Redskins are reportedly still in the mix, as well. Britt is clearly holding out hope for a better deal, but he shouldn't hold his breath. Thanks to his injury history, off-the-field issues and poor 2013, Britt is likely limited to take-it-or-leave-it offers.

A team source tells ESPN that Washington is still interested in free agent Kenny Britt.

Per reporter John Keim, Washington is "just waiting for (Britt) to make up his mind." Britt made visits to Carolina, St. Louis, Buffalo, New England and Washington, but the Patriots have ruled themselves out as a destination. Rams GM Les Snead put his team's odds of signing Britt at "better than 50 percent." Britt should reach a decision sometime in the next 48 hours.

Rams GM Les Snead said the team has a "better than 50 percent" chance of signing free agent Kenny Britt.

St. Louis was Britt's first visit of free agency. He then went to New England, Washington, and Buffalo. The Patriots have already said they won't sign Britt. The Rams give Britt his best opportunity to be a No. 1 receiver and potentially revive his career. Britt is expected to make a decision in the next couple days.
Mar 25 - 3:52 PM

Owner Bob Kraft confirmed the Patriots won't be signing free agent Kenny Britt.

"We won't be signing him," Kraft said. "That won't happen." Britt visited the Pats last week. Coach/GM Bill Belichick wasn't even present for the meeting. Britt is expected to make a decision where to sign within the next couple days. Other teams previously linked to Britt are the Rams, Redskins, Bills, and Panthers.
Mar 25 - 9:47 AM

Free agent Kenny Britt said he expects to make a decision on where to sign "in a couple days."

Britt is visiting with the Bills on Friday, and has previously met with the Rams, Patriots, and Redskins. Given his history of injuries and off-field issues, he shouldn't command more than a short-term deal with little guaranteed money. The Panthers have also shown interest in Britt, but have yet to schedule a visit.
