Following WR Kenny Britt's benching in Sunday's Titans vs Texans game, tensions are high in Tennessee.
"That's two weeks in a row he's had a holding call, so it was more to refocus him," Head Coach Mike Munchak said of the benching. "It cost us a 10-yard penalty on a 10-yard gain, and we can't have that."
The wide receiver has also had his issues off the field, being a part of some form of police involvement nine times, since joining the NFL. Still, with the struggles the Jets WRs have had catching the ball, and running basic routes, it may be time to give Tennessee a call.
Britt already believes he will be gone from TEN after this season, playing in the final year of his current contract.

However, some rumors are floating around that Britt will be cut sooner rather than later.
Whatever the case, Kenny Britt would make sense for Gang Green.
He's a good stop-gap for 2013, as the Jets lack playmakers, and he's a Jersey-native, so the hometown reunion may be a good change-of-scenary.
WR Stephen Hill has not done enough to earn his WR2 position just yet, so a little real competition would be good for the sophomore.
Britt had 45 receptions for 589 yards in 2013. That's not exactly amazing, but, to put it in perspective, Britt would've been number 2 on the team in receptions on 2012's Jets team—surpassing original number 2, Jeff Cumberland, by 230 yards! Cumberland also played in one more game (15), than Britt did.
Through 2 games of 2013, Britt has 5 receptions for 43 yards.
At 24 years old, the talented-but-troubled WR is worth the risk, and wouldn't cost John Idzik that much in picks and/or players after all the drama in Tennessee.
