Sooner is better on Britt discipline verdict
By Paul Kuharsky
When it comes to suspensions under the league’s personal conduct policy, pace can be an issue.
I don’t know if Kenny Britt's knees will allow him to be available for the start of the season.
But Kendall Wright is signed and will soon be on the field. It’s early in camp, but the Titans need to start sorting through roles. And knowing as much as possible about Britt’s availability is a factor in that equation.
So while John Glennon tells us Britt will eventually be called to New York for a disciplinary hearing with Roger Goodell, it means it’s not yet scheduled.
I hope the league will move swiftly in the interest of fairness.
Mike Munchak has said the team moves forward with injured guys as if they will not be back. That’s how they are proceeding with Britt, who’s on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list right now.
But the receiver is a huge piece of their plan.
The longer it takes for the Titans to know about Britt’s discipline status, the less they can formulate and crystallize that plan.
Here’s hoping the league’s investigation into Britt’s incident is completed soon, if it’s not already finished. And that Goodell gets Britt up to his office to work through things sooner rather than later.
