The rope has reached its end for the Tennessee Titans coaches and wide receiver Kenny Britt. His problems could harm the teams' chances this season. Would a team like the Miami Dolphins take him in a trade?
Ryan Tannehill played well but the same was not the case for the rest of the Miami Dolphins offense in their loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Reggie Bush didn't get much going on the ground and starter Matt Moore threw an interception. However the real angst for Dolphins fans came from a quiet showing by free agent receiver Chad Johnson. The man formerly known as "Ochocinco" boasted through training camp he was playing better than ever. Some who watched him did see flashes of his Pro Bowl form but somehow none of it showed up against Tampa Bay. Johnson did not make a catch and even had a bad drop that killed a Miami drive for points. He was supposedly the guy that could replace All-Pro Brandon Marshall but he might not survive the season under new head coach Joe Philbin with games like that. Is it a sign of Johnson slowing down or does he need help?
Britt can't match brains with talent for Jake Locker and Chris Johnson
One player teams have had their eyes on is Kenny Britt of the Tennessee Titans. Though talented and young, he hasn't wasted time becoming one of the most visible players in the NFL as far as constantly getting in trouble. Since entering the league out of Rutgers, Britt has seen handcuffs no less than eight times as a member of the Titans. The latest came for DUI on an army base in Kentucky. Somehow Britt still avoided punishment from the league but that isn't the case for his team. Their coaches and front office have grown tired of his antics and immaturity. Unless he can offer some promise of no future problems, they may not bring him back, instead putting the team on the shoulders of star running back Chris Johnson and young quarterback Jake Locker. If he doesn't then the Titans will likely try to trade him. A rebuilding team like the Miami Dolphins could use a player of his skill for Ryan Tannehill to grow with. While it is a huge risk the team could benefit in the long run.
Chad Johnson, whether he pans out or not, is not a long-term answer for Miami. Should the Titans part ways with Kenny Britt they may find great value in scooping him up on a one-year flyer.
