OPEN THREAD: Should the Redskins sign Kenny Britt?

Most observers would say the Redskins could use a big receiver to play opposite Pierre Garçon. Is Kenny Britt that guy? Britt has interest from Washington, but reports also show plenty of other interested teams like Buffalo, New England and Carolina just to name a few. 

Britt has big-time talent, but big-time baggage as well. In five seasons with Tennessee, Britt played in just 57 of a possible 80 games. Britt battled knee injuries as well as off-the-field legal issues. But when he did play, Britt proved to be a difference maker. With an average of more than 15 yards per catch, Britt emerged as a downfield threat for the Titans, despite never breaking the 1,000 yard mark.

His best season came in 2010 when Britt scored nine touchdowns on 42 catches, racking up more than 770 yards in just 12 games. That season also began a series of injuries that would limit Britt to just three games the following season. 

Robert Griffin III could use another receiver with size, which Britt has at 6'3", 223 lbs. Leonard Hankerson has good size, but has been inconsistent throughout his Redskins tenure. Beyond Hankerson and Garçon, the Redskins have a number of smaller, slot-type wideouts.

Should the Skins make a run at Britt? Would he fit in well in the locker room? Could they use him on the field? Let us know what you think in the comments.
