Britt meets with Pats, leaves without deal

By Field Yates

Former Tennessee Titans wide receiver and first-round pick Kenny Britt visited with the Patriots on Monday.

He's the latest wide receiver to come through Foxborough, as the team also has had Jason Avant in for a visit and finalized a deal with Brandon LaFell on Monday.

Britt is an interesting player who has flashed speed and explosiveness at points of his career, but has had maturity and off-field issues as well as knee troubles. He is a former Rutgers standout, and given the pipeline from Rutgers to New England, he's generated significant interest among Patriots followers.

For now, that's the extent of what we know. He has not been signed and will visit the Washington Redskins next, according to an NFL Network report.

He also has visited with the St. Louis Rams, who are coached by Jeff Fisher. Fisher was the Titans' coach when the team drafted Britt back in 2009.

The fact that Britt is leaving New England without a deal is not a tell-tale sign that the Patriots are not going to sign him, but no deal has been consummated at this time.
