Patriots sign WR Kenny Britt to 2-year deal, report says

Robert Kraft

ESPN's Adam Schefter corroborated the report, while NFL Media's Ian Rapoport revealed that Britt will be signing a 2-year deal with New England. However, Britt didn't work out in Cleveland and he was released earlier in the year. In 2016, he had 68 catches for 1,002 yards and five touchdowns while with the Rams.

The Patriots had him in for a visit as a free agent in the spring of 2014. In nine games with Cleveland this season, he amassed 18 receptions for 233 yards and two touchdowns before being waived last Thursday.

By 2012, Britt, then with the Titans, had eight run-ins with police since being drafted by Tennessee in 2009.

Britt, 29, played his college football at Rutgers University for Greg Schiano, who has recommended several players to Bill Belichick. Although it will be a challenge for Britt to come in and make an immediate impact based on his lack of background in New England's offensive system, perhaps he could fill a similar niche role as Floyd (also a bigger target at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds) late last season.

Where does Britt fit in? Outside of Danny Amendola's six catches for 76 yards, the Patriots had just two combined receptions from both Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan.

The Patriots have added some wide receiver depth for the stretch run. Second-year receiver Malcolm Mitchell remains on injured reserve, and though the Patriots do have the option to activate one more player to the roster, it's unclear if Mitchell is close to being able to play. Previous year in mid-December, the team claimed Michael Floyd off waivers following his release by the Cardinals after a DUI arrest. Floyd was a healthy scratch for the AFC Chamionship Game and the Super Bowl.
