I remember a couple years ago Britt was tearing it up despite mediocre QB play from the Titans (Kerry Collins?) before an injury wiped out his season.

Apparently the injury I'm thinking of was two years ago. And now that you mention it I do remember now all his troubles last year from the injury and recovery. The only injury news I've found on him during the season so far was in weeks 4 & 5 due to a neck and rib injury.

Just looking at his performance and relation with the Titans so far this season the guy could definitely use a change of scenery. But their asking price of a 3rd rounder is insane.

Kenny Britt for 2014's 8th round draft choice, sure, that's what I'd be willing to dish out for him.

Randy Moss.

He has had 9.. yes nine run ins with the law since he was drafted.. he already has had a 1 game suspension for those.

If you are looking short term and can put up with his antics.. might help.. but long term.. way to much risk.

My opinion.. there are better options out there for less risk and a better chance of long term reward than him.

Don't forget.. torn both his ACL and MCL in 2011.

I don't see the attraction to Britt...

Overrated as a WR and 1 legal incident away from a prolonged suspension. I wouldn't be cool with trading anything earlier than a conditional 6th round pick for him. Probably not even that just based on how he's looked this year. Whatever he had that made him a 1st round pick it doesn't look like he has it anymore. No thanks.

I say a big fat NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO don't do it. Why give away a draft pick for a guy that might be good for what maybe 6 games?

No thanks.
I'd rather Ted brings White up from the practice squad.
I'm sure there are better options than Britt.

Give me Myles White. We don't need a headache like Britt.

Myles White should be able to work in fine with the rest of our healthy WRs. We can also give Bostik a go. Use more 2 and 3 TE sets. We should be fine at WR till Cobb and Jones return.

If we are going to make a trade, go for a Safety. Go for Jairus Byrd. Trade for Byrd!

Wasn't it Jordy that was supposed to get injuried in his prediction or am I mixing up sources?

Anyway, shit idea. Don't want Britt for all of the aforementioned reasons.

A little biased, since I'm coming from ECU here, but what about Dwayne Harris from the Cowboys? I still think he's underrated as a WR, and is more than capable of making plays on special teams. Although I doubt the Cowboys would be too willing to give him up after their game against Washington.

I don't mind renting-a-head-case for one partial season. But I want a head case with fits-the-Packer-system-with-an-Andre-Rison-in-1996-level skill set.

If there is such a player out there now.

I wouldn't necessarily mind a 6th round pick for him, but I know the Titans won't take that, anyway. 6th and 7th round picks have a hard time making this team anyway. One injury during training camp and they likely don't make the team, like Charles Johnson (sp?). With Britt, you get someone would could very well fill a gap as a 3rd/4th WR and if not, only cost a low pick. It's one of those things that would look like a great move if it worked out, and a bad one if it didn't. If the Packers were a lesser team, than I would say no way, but how many more 6th and 7th round picks does this team need next training camp, anyway? The Packers are pretty loaded.

With that being said, not happening though. I do like a few risks here and there though, because sometimes they pay off. Ted Thompson doesn't like them though, so fair enough.

If we should trade for anyone it should be a safety. I like the way you think

Unless we are losing someone in the off-season, it would be a stretch to trade for a WR. If anything - I am more concerned about the glaring safety issue. The receiver situation is a short term problem as things stand now, but the problems at safety are a different story.

Neither of these needs will probably be handled via trade, it just isn't the way Ted does business.
