On Thursday Titans WR Kenny Britt denied involvement in a fight that took place at a Nashville nightclub last week, saying he witnessed the dispute but did not throw any punches.
Britt was suspended for the first quarter of the team's Week Seven game vs. the Eagles after an accusation was made that he punched a fellow club attendee in the eye, resulting in stitches. PFW Titans correspondent and Tennessean reporter Jim Wyatt wrote today that Britt has hired a lawyer to defend him in this ongoing investigation.
The way we see it
Britt's legal trouble seemed to motivate him a week ago, as the second-year pro had a career day vs. the Eagles, with seven catches for 225 yards and three touchdowns. He had better be telling the truth, though, as if there is one thing that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell dislikes more than players getting in legal trouble, it's players lying publicly.
