Over the past few years or so, one of the most troublesome players in the NFL has been without a doubt Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt.
After an eighth altercation with the law since being drafted out of Rutgers in 2009, Britt has earned the reputation as a player that can be a serious problem for an NFL franchise. The Titans were counting on a potential high-risk situation paying off with arguably one of the most talented young receivers in the game.
Even though Britt has the potential to become an elite receiver in the league, the rising star simply can’t stay out of trouble and the eighth arrest for driving under the influence has garnered him another suspension by the NFL.
Fortunately for the Titans and Britt, the league has only suspended the 23-year-old receiver for one game to start the 2012 NFL season. This is an interesting move by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. With Goodell practicing a no tolerance for incidents of this kind off the field, the commissioner has been surprisingly easy on the troubled wideout.
As a result of the suspension, Britt will miss the season-opening game for the Titans against the New England Patriots.
It remains to be seen how much patience the league and the Titans organization will have for Britt moving forward. It would be hard see the team or NFL not handing down a harsh punishment with another incident in the near future.
As for the Titans, Tennessee is ushering in a new era of football with second-year quarterback Jake Locker as the starting quarterback moving forward. Veteran Matt Hasselbeck will almost certainly still be in the equation as the season progresses with constant pressure on Locker to show results, but the Titans seem content with the young gunslinger under center.
