KENNY BRITT: Here is a guy that has fallen out of favor with his team, clearly, and has a pretty decent shot of moving on, if anyone is willing to take him.

Kenny Britt runs a 4.5 forty yard dash, and is only 25 years old. However, he has underperformed for much of his career, brought down by injuries and multiple encounters with the police. The Titans obviously have no intention of using him, as he has only recorded eight catches for 67 yards so far in 2013. In the right scenario, a change of scene, he could become a deadly weapon for a team.

The question with Britt, as it was with Gordon, is will anyone be willing to take him? He is a guy with character issues, and guys like that can bring locker rooms down.

MAURICE JONES-DREW: Here is a guy who, if I was a GM that was very close, a running back away, I would make a move on.

Yes, he is 28 years old, which is not the youngest when talking about a running back. But, he has not been a full-time starter for his entire career. MJD didn’t become the full-time starter until 2009. 2009 started a run of three straight 1,000 yard rushing seasons, along with 28 TDs over that period.

His performance has been well down in 2013, barely averaging over three yards per carry. A lot of that, however, can be attributed to the Jaguars only having one guy anyone is afraid of, MJD. Teams are keying on him every week, and until the offense gets better, they will key on MJD.

Someone should pry this guy loose, finally get him somewhere he will have a chance to win something.

FRED DAVIS: Thanks to the play of Jordan Reed at tight end, the Redskins are aggressively trying to move Fred Davis.

If a team brings him in, they will be bringing in an athletic player at 6’4″, 247 pounds. Over a span of three years from 2009-2011, Davis posted 12 touchdowns. He is quick, and a potent target in the red zone. With only three catches in 2013, he is no longer in the Redskins’ plans.

    Kenny Britt is the best option. The Titans are going to cut him, so a team could probably trade for him a conditional 7th round pick and the Titans would take it since it’s better than the nothing they will get at season’s end. The Jets would be smart to trade something like a conditional late rounder provided he plays 50% of the snaps or some kind of criteria like that.
