Kenny Britt was asked how his time off between mini-camp and training camp went.
“You didn't hear anything from me, did you?” asked Britt, who has nine police run-ins in his past with the Tennessee Titans.
In that regard, no news was good news for Britt and the Titans. But five years in, Tennessee is still waiting for Britt to live up to his first-round draft status with a healthy, breakthrough season. With Britt entering the final year of his rookie deal, 2013 is now or never as far as the Titans are concerned.
Physically, Britt says he is much better than a year ago when he was coming off three knee procedures, including ACL and MCL surgery on his right knee. He had a career-high 42 catches last year, but 2012 turned out to be a disappointment, considering the track he was on before wrecking his right knee two-and-a-half games into 2011. He had 17 receptions for 289 yards in that short span before the injury.
“My best physical shape was in 2011, and I'm definitely on my stride and my way to getting there. This will get me better going through the camp process and putting the shoulder pads back on and after I'll definitely be back to where I was.”
Britt says he has set weekly goals for himself and believes that that can lead to him finally fulfilling his potential on the field.
“I'm going to set goals once a week and then set more goals. I'm going to push myself each and every day. I don't count my chickens before they hatch, but there's a lot of things I want to happen throughout the year,” Britt said.
Asked what those “things” are, Britt, said, “I want to be a complete player and be that No. 1 receiver I know I can be, and everybody else sees the potential and says I can be, and show them I can do it, and show myself I can do it.”
