Titans WR Kenny Britt doesn't have to worry about getting cut, but he will face discipline from his team and likely the league.

A team source told NFL Network's Albert Breer that the Titans will hold on to Britt, a third-year pro who was arrested for the second time in two months this week.

Britt was arrested Wednesday in New Jersey after allegedly crushing a marijuana cigar before narcotics officers could get to it and not allowing officers to handcuff him.

Britt was charged with eluding arrest after a police chase in April, but the charge was downgraded. He pleaded guilty and will pay a $478 fine. Britt was involved in a bar fight in October and benched for the first quarter of the team's next game. He still went 7-225-3 in three quarters of play.

Britt, 22, had 42 catches for 775 yards and nine touchdowns in 12 games last season. He is expected to be subject to the league's personal-conduct policy and likely will face a suspension once the lockout ends.

The way we see it

The Titans know what kind of talent they have in Britt, now new head coach Mike Munchak needs to find a way to keep Britt out of trouble off the field. Britt has run into problems both in his home state of New Jersey and in Tennessee and has made poor decisions to this point in his life.
