Veteran WR Britt to sign four-year deal with Browns
Mar 10 2017
That puts them in position to be big spenders in free agency, if any notable players are willing to join a perpetual rebuild that has no end in sight.
The Cleveland Browns are expected to sign veteran wide receiver Kenny Britt to a four-year, $32.5 million contract, a source told ESPN's Adam Caplan.
If the Browns can't keep receiver Terrelle Pryor, they have found his replacement.
Britt is coming off his best individual season where he notched career highs with 68 receptions for 1,002 receiving yards which were both also team highs for this past season. Shortly after that, some insane rumors started to circulate about how Britt was in Atlantic City telling people he signed with the Eagles, but Britt's agent promptly shot those down.
Britt has played eight National Football League seasons.
The 28-year-old Britt hasn't necessarily made the most of his opportunities, however. Meanwhile, the Bills may be forced into taking a receiver with the 10th overall pick, as they now have Sammy Watkins and a bunch of fringe players, nearly none of whom has starting potential. Signing Britt should not preclude Pryor from returning, but it's a bit eerie how similar their production was in 2016.
