Kenny Britt: ‘I feel I let myself down the last six years’
St. Louis Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt had a productive first year with the Rams. Britt finished the season with 48 receptions for 748 yards and three touchdowns. While those numbers may not be spectacular, the 748 receiving yards did lead the Rams.
Britt was unimpressed with his first year in St. Louis and has actually been frustrated by the first six-years of his career thus far.
"There’s definitely more I feel like I can give because there’s more that I want to give and there’s more that I want to do in my career," Britt said, via ESPN. "I’m going into my seventh year, I feel I let myself down the last six years. I have a chip on my shoulder this year and I’ve got a lot to prove."
Britt re-signed with the Rams this offseason in large part due to head coach Jeff Fisher. Britt believes he can thrive under Fisher because of the way he lets him play.
"There’s definitely something to that," Britt said. "Fisher is a coach that lets you be yourself on the field and off the field. He treats you like a man instead of a child. He lets the coaches coach and he lets the players do the plays on the field and off the field. That’s something you can be comfortable is being yourself instead of being uptight and watching what you have to say or what you have to do. I’m definitely more relaxed. And when you’re more relaxed, you play better."
Britt is determined to leave it all on the field this season and believes he can find a way to improve every year he is in the NFL.
"I think every year I have more," Britt said. "I always say I have more. I don’t want to leave this season saying I left something out there on the field."
