Pro Football Talk reports that Titans WR Kenny Britt, who just can’t seem to stay out of trouble these days, is talking about walking away and retiring from football because he’s made at Commissioner Roger Goodell. Another bizarre story about a goof that just needs to shut up and stay out of trouble.
Just when we thought we might actually go a few days without any Kenny Britt headlines, the volatile Tennessee Titans receiver has caused a stir in the social media world, with a post on Facebook saying he would retire from the NFL over anger at Commissioner Roger Goodell, another post recanting that statement, and then yet another post saying his Facebook page was hacked.
Brendan Prunty of the Newark Star-Ledger, who covered Britt at Rutgers, spread the word on Twitter of Britt’s bizarre posts. (Prunty told PFT via e-mail that Britt does update his own Facebook page regularly.) Britt’s first Facebook post was short and to the point: “Retiring from the NFL. F*** You Goddell.” Presumably, that would be a reaction to Britt’s perception that his multiple arrests would lead to a suspension under the league’s personal-conduct policy, although preemptively retiring due to an assumption that he’s going to be suspended would be rather odd.
