An NFL spokesman said that potential league discipline regarding Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt “is pending.”
Greg Aiello, senior vice president of public relations, told TitanInsider that the matter is still on the table regarding Britt, who had three run-ins with the law this past off-season during the lockout.
Britt entered a not guilty plea in New Jersey last month to three charges of disorderly person after police initially charged believed he had a cigar containing marijuana in a June arrest. He has a Sept. 20 court date.
He was also charged with two counts of falsifying information on his driver's license in Tennessee in late June.
Britt's first encounter with police in the off-season was when he plead guilty to careless driving after being clocked doing 71 mph in a 50 mph and trying to elude police. Britt and a passenger then abandoned the vehicle.
The issue with Britt and his ability to avoid being suspended, however, lies not in the severity of the incidents so much as with the lockout. Technically, because owners had locked players out of the facilities this off-season, players were not NFL employees at the time of the incidents. So it is possible that Britt could appeal the matter and avoid being punished.
Britt told TitanInsider after Thursday's practice that he had still not heard from the league, but is expecting the call to come to visit Commissioner Roger Goodell on the matter.
“I'm waiting for my agent or somebody to text me or call me that I have to come and talk to somebody. That's what I'm waiting for. I think I'll have to (talk to the commissioner). I'm waiting if it's pending,” Britt said. “My agent was telling me to stand by and wait for some paperwork, but the only paperwork that's come is my Nike contract.”
