Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt broke his silence on Wednesday, saying that Commissioner Roger Goodell was not happy to see him back so soon when Britt was summoned to his office on Monday.
Britt, who was involved in a string of incidents during the lockout last year, was arrested July 20 in Fort Campbell, Ky., trying to enter the army post. Britt, who had indicated earlier in camp that the Titans did not want him to address the media, spoke on Wednesday while sitting at teammate Chris Johnson's locker.
“He wasn't that pleased at seeing me in there,” Britt said of Goodell. “No person would like to see their players in their office twice in one year.”
Britt declined to reveal any details of his conversation with the commissioner, but he said he will take whatever punishment or suspension comes his way.
“It was a personal meeting. I'd rather wait to see what happens,” Britt said. “I'll go off what off his decision is....I'm a man about what I did and I'm going to take it on the chin, whatever he decides, and move forward.,”
Britt indicated that he is concerned he could receive a harsh penalty from Goodell.
“Everybody should be worried if they see the commissioner twice in one year,” he said.
He went on to say that he regrets the incident and that he will try to learn from it.
“I regret every incident in my life the same. The things I did in the past you have to learn from all our mistakes,” Britt said. “I'm going to learn from every mistake that I do in life. I'm going to learn from mistakes that people do in their life and move forward.”
Despite his impending problems, Britt did show that he hadn't lost some of his sense of humor. A reporter asked him how he got into his current problems, and Britt replied, “What? Don't you read the news?”
Britt also spoke about coming back from the knee problems that have landed him on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Britt's last procedure came in June on his left knee. He tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee in September and had a clean-up procedure on it in May.
“It felt the best since I had my last surgery and that was about four weeks ago. It feels good, it still stiffened a little when I first got out there. It's feeling good and I'll take it day by day,” Britt said.
