Randy Moss spent half a season as Kenny Britt’s teammate with the Titans. That was enough for the future Hall-of-Famer to give Britt high praise.
While Moss wouldn’t comment on Britt’s off the field issues (he’s had at least nine incidents with police) the future Hall-of-Famer did say he thinks he can be one of the best in the business if he gets his head straight.
“I can’t really speak about it because I have been into trouble off the field myself,” Moss said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “But from what I have seen Kenny Britt do, man, if he gets his mind right, Kenny Britt can get up in elite class very quickly. I am a big fan of his.
“Kenny Britt is a young receiver who can get in that mix if he wants to, and does the things to make it happen. But his is more mental than it is physical. I hope it works out for him because he is quite a talent. That guy could be special.”
His former Rutgers teammate Ray Rice agrees.
“He is a talent like no other,” Rice said. “If he ever puts it all together — and that’s not football — if he ever gets the right people around him to guide him, to support him, then he can be one of the top five receivers in this league, hands down.
“Whenever I see him I tell him how much I care about him. I love him. He is always going to be a brother. I have never wanted to be one that ridicules someone. Everybody goes through things in their life, and you have to have that turning point where it’s time for me to change.”
