St. Louis Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt is entering the second and final year of his two-year contract with the Rams, and he will look to continue proving he can still be a solid receiving weapon.

He had signed a $9.15 million deal with the Rams in 2014, and he may be in for a big payday if he can establish himself as the No. 1 receiver in the Rams offense. Head coach Jeff Fisher is expecting big things out of him.
“I think he can do better. He thinks he can be better. He thinks he can be more productive. He’s looking forward to the offensive changes. I think, yeah, we should see a lot more out of Kenny this year,” Fisher said.
After a series of arrests derailed his career with the Tennessee Titans, Britt had one of his best seasons ever in 2014 with 48 receptions for 748 yards and three touchdown catches.
Britt posted respectable numbers despite playing in a lackluster Rams pass offense, which was led by backup quarterbacks and Shaun Hill and Austin Davis throughout the season.
Tavon Austin has failed to pan out as a deep threat since being selected eighth overall in the 2013 draft, but fellow West Virginia alumni Stedman Bailey stepped up as a complementary receiver.
The passing game may see improvement with the acquisition of Nick Foles, who was traded from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for Sam Bradford.
