Happy Tuesday, Ravens Nation! I hope you all are having one fantastic August 20th. I, personally, go back to school in just a few days. I'm not looking forward to it, but you gotta do what you gotta do! We have a bunch of mail to open today, so let's get started!
Q1: What do you think of the rumors about trading for WR Kenny Britt? - Terrin Wilson
I have heard these rumors, especially here on Baltimore Beatdown. I believe that this is very possible. Let me just tell you a few reasons why this may not happen:
- The Price: I am not sure that the Titans want anything that the Ravens are willing to give for Britt. He is one of their top two receivers, which means that they may want a lot for Britt. His actual price won't be that much after the Ravens get him, of course. Britt would only count for around $2 million on the salary cap, which is a price that the Ravens are able to pay.
- Health: Does anyone know the last time Britt played a full NFL season? I do. It was 2009, his rookie year. He has since then played: twelve games in 2010; three games in 2011; and fourteen games in 2012. He seems to never be healthy, including now. Britt is currently sitting out of practice due to swelling and soreness in his surgically repaired knee. It is uncertain whether or not Britt will continue to be healthy, or if he'll have another season where he misses a few games.
- Off the Field Issues: Kenny Britt has been involved with police nine times since he joined the NFL in 2009. Britt has been charged with careless driving, DUI, resisting arrest, and a few other things. One of the big question marks is whether or not he can stay out of trouble. The Ravens signed troubled linebacker Rolando McClain a few months ago, and we all see how well that worked out.
