Kenny Britt Posts About Retiring from NFL on Facebook, Blasts Roger Goodell

Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt has been in the news more than any other player during the lockout, and for all the wrong reasons. In April he took police on a car chase before walking away from the car and denying it was him. Then the day after he pleaded guilty to careless driving, he was charged with resisting arrest. Something must have happened on Monday because Britt wrote on his facebook that he was going to retire from the NFL. Here’s a picture of his status posting via cazzball on twitter:

That post has been deleted and Britt reportedly apologized on Facebook, but his comments about Goodell are already out there. I have no idea what prompted his posting and I don’t believe for a second he’s going to retire, but he only has himself to blame for his problems. Maybe he was told he’ll be facing a suspension when the season gets underway. It really is a shame that Britt keeps getting into trouble because he was one of the best receivers in the NFL when healthy last season, and he’s letting all his talent go to waste. Just like another guy about whom we just wrote.

UPDATE: Britt deleted the post and claimed he was hacked. According to Newark Star-Ledger writer Brendan Prunty, Britt followed up on Facebook writing:

Change of HEart.. My family is always here for me. I made mistakes and i am sorry i am going to change and become a better person and mentor for all my young fans.. I will accept any penalty like a man.. my fbook was hacked with those past 2 status’s.. i am not retiring and do not have any hate toward the commissioner.”

It sounds as if Britt’s handlers got a hold of him quickly and encouraged the apology and excuse. It also sounds like Britt’s post was made out of frustration over a potential conversation with Roger Goodell regarding possible punishments for his off-field arrests.

    Kenny Britt should be called “Ms. Pacman” because we’ve seen this story once before with the Titans.

    Yeah not part of this thread but definitely over paid! If it weren’t for football or basketball most of these guys would not have gone to college or even have a job!

    But football does exist and they put their lives on the line to play. They deserve every penny they earn, if not more.
