Biography

PRO: Wide receiver Kenny Britt provides an explosive element to the team’s passing game with his combination of size, speed and catching ability.  He is considered one of the team’s building blocks at the offensive skill positions, alongside a trio of the team’s other first-round draft picks: quarterback Jake Locker, running back Chris Johnson and wide receiver Kendall Wright. In Britt’s first two seasons (2009–2010), he led the team with a total of 1,476 receiving yards and tied for the team lead with 12 touchdown receptions.  In that period of time, he ranked sixth in the NFL with a 17.6-yard receiving average.  He began his third season on a torrid pace, catching 17 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns before tearing his right ACL and MCL in the team’s fourth game.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    After missing the majority of the 2011 season with a knee injury, Britt returned to the field in 2012 and saw action in 14 games.  He ranked third on the team with 45 receptions and 589 receiving yards, while tying for the team lead with four receiving touchdowns.
•    In the first two games of 2011, Britt’s 271 combined receiving yards ranked second in franchise history through the first two weeks of the season, trailing only Charley Hennigan’s 347 in 1962.
•    With 701 receiving yards as a rookie and 775 yards in 2010, Britt became the first Titans/Oilers player since Chris Sanders (1995­–1996) to lead the squad in receiving yards in each of his first two seasons.
•    From Sept. 26–Oct. 24, 2010, Britt caught at least one touchdown pass in five consecutive games, tying for the second-longest streak in franchise history.
•    Britt recorded one of the best receiving games in franchise annals against the Eagles on Oct. 24, 2010, when he caught seven passes for 225 yards and three touchdowns.  His yardage total ranked fifth in team history.
•    In 2009, his rookie receiving yardage total (701 yards) ranked fifth in franchise rookie history and was the highest by a Titans rookie receiver since Chris Sanders’ 823 yards in 1995.   
•    Among the 2009 NFL rookie class, Britt was seventh in the NFL and third in the AFC in receptions (42), and he was fifth in the NFL and second in the AFC in receiving yards (701).
•    Britt provided one of the most dramatic endings to an NFL game in 2009 with a 10-yard, game-winning touchdown reception on fourth down as time expired against the Arizona Cardinals (11/29/09).
•    In pre-draft workouts in 2009, Britt was timed in the 40-yard dash at 4.5 seconds and displayed a 37-inch vertical jump.

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    Prior to the 2009 NFL Draft, Britt spent extensive time training with former Denver Broncos wide receiver Rod Smith, who totaled more than 11,000 receiving yards during his career.
•    When the Titans used the 30th overall selection in the 2009 NFL Draft on him, Britt became the first Rutgers player ever to be drafted in the first round.
•    The son of Jack Britt and Michelle Johnson, Kenny also was influenced heavily throughout his youth by his uncle, Rev. Alex C. Britt.  Kenny was heavily involved in his uncle’s Newark congregation, the Church of the Living Water, and even moved in with the reverend and his wife, Donalda, prior to his junior year at Rutgers.
•    Britt is an avid player of the video game Call of Duty.

CAREER TRANSACTIONS:  
•    The Bayonne (bay-OWN), N.J., native was selected by the Titans in the first round (30th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft.
