"It would be great to stay, as long as they're giving me opportunities that I should get, especially since I've been working hard and doing the right things out there," Britt said, according to The (Nashville) Tennessean. "Going somewhere else and having a fresh start, it would be good also. But where my mind is right now is just probably staying here because everything is here -- my family is here and stuff like that."

Britt, 25, has struggled with drops this season, causing his playing time to diminish. He has just eight receptions for 67 yards this season, which is his final year of his contract. He has 154 receptions for 2,421 yards and 19 touchdowns in 51 career games.

He caused a stir earlier this season with a tweet about how he expects this to be his last season with the team. He suggested he was getting blamed for mistakes he wasn't making, the same way he felt former Titans tight end Jared Cook did a year ago. He later tried to clarify the tweet and said he hopes the Titans want him back next season and that he would like to be back.

Britt's off-field behavior also is a consideration for any team looking to trade for the receiver. He has had nine incidents with police since being drafted in the first round by the Titans in 2009.
