The Eagles are reportedly going to sign the Rams free agent wide receiver Kenny Britt today. NFL reporter Benjamin Albright says former Titans wide out will sign with the Birds today. Britt is a big physical receiver, who is close to Birds new wide receiver coach Mike Groh.
He’s big and he’s tough. Toughness is the one ingredient that the Eagles want to bring to this football team. They want players who are tough physically and mentally. When they think of the Cowboys and Giants teams that they need to beat in the near future, they know they must put together a tough physical team.
Britt had his first 1000 yard season in his career last year despite being paired with poor quarterback play. Britt, who played his college ball at Rutgers, stands about 6’4″ and weighs 215.
Should the Eagles sign Britt, I think it’s because they see him as a good bargain, because he doesn’t have other teams competing with the Birds and therefore forcing them to pay him too much.
One negative about Britt, which makes you wonder about the signing, is the fact that he will be 29 in September. The Birds were expected to go after a wide out, who was younger, so he could grow with Carson Wentz.
Everybody and their brother are reporting DeSean Jackson will be a Tampa Bay Buccaneers some time today.
