St. Louis Rams rumors have the team signing free agent receiver Kenny Britt to a one-year deal. These St. Louis Rams rumors definitely make sense for the team, as the roster needed to see some improvement at the wide receiver position. According to a report from ESPN on Monday (March 31), the deal is worth at least $1.4 million for the 2014 NFL season, but it also has several incentives built into it that could push the value to $2.9 million.
Britt comes from the Tennessee Titans, where he finished with a really rough 2013 season. He played limited snaps, finishing with just 11 catches for 96 yards and no touchdowns. His best seasons were in 2009 and 2010, where he caught 42 balls each year and posted a combined 1,476 yards and 12 touchdowns. That is the talent level that the Rams are looking to receive from him when the new campaign gets started, which is why they have given him several incentive levels within this new deal.
While there might be more exciting St. Louis Rams rumors out there than the signing of Kenny Britt, he could be a valuable asset for down-the-field passes in 2014. The contract comes with very little risk and having to pay only $1.4 million for a receiver that could turn in a great season makes it well worth the effort for the team. This also reunites him with Jeff Fisher, who he played well with back in his Titans days and who might be able to tap that well of potential once again.
