Looking for more size at WR, Bills interview Kenny Britt

Tennessee Titans free-agent receiver Kenny Britt is visiting the Buffalo Bills today, the team announced.

Britt is a big receiver, something the Bills need, and he's looking to revive his career.

The 30th overall pick of the 2009 draft, Britt has been involved in police-related incidents numerous times since his NFL career began. He was suspended for the first game of the 2012 season due to numerous off-field incidents. He was arrested in April 2011 following an alleged car chase with police. Charges were later reduced. In June 2012 he was charged with resisting arrest in New Jersey. On Jan. 13 of this year, a close friend of Britt's was involved in a stabbing, and Britt reportedly drove him to a New Jersey hospital.

Britt caught just 11 passes in 12 games last season. He already has made visits this offseason to New England, St. Louis and Washington. Carolina reportedly is interested.

He had 45 catches for 589 yards in 2012. He had 42 catches each of his first two seasons and 17 catches in just three games in 2011. He tore knee ligaments that year.

    11 catches in 12 games and then driving a close friend involved in a stabbing to the hospital right after the season ended. Kenny Britt's 2013-14 NFL season in a nutshell.

    Wow, I sure hope the Bills "don't let him leave town" without signing him. Just imagine how much better Manuel's 10 games might have been if he had Britt around to catch 9 more passes!
