The Saint Louis Rams have flown under the radar going in to the 2015 NFL season.

The Rams don't have the Michael Sam circus hanging around them this off-season and the team have drifted back into obscurity with the signing of Nick Fairley being their only major acquisition in free agency.

The Rams did manage to get a boost for their offense however, with the drafting of star running back Todd Gurley from Georgia, a new young quarterback in Sean Mannion as well as several offensive tackles.

The one place that the Rams didn't really do anything was at wide receiver, where 6th round pick Bud Sasser was released after a heart condition was revealed, and the Rams will start the season with Brian Quick, Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt at wideout.

Brutally Honest

And it is that man Britt who has taken the headlines today, after revealing to Nick Wagoner of ESPN that he had let himself down so far in his career.

After years with the Tennessee Titans that were known more for off-field trouble and injuries than incredible plays, Britt finally proved himself to be a dependable target and caught 48 passes for 748 yards in his most productive season since 2010.

That wasn’t good enough for Britt however, who feels that he still hasn't played as well as he can in his NFL career.

“There’s definitely more I feel like I can give because there’s more that I want to give and there’s more that I want to do in my career,” Britt said. “I’m going into my seventh year, I feel I let myself down the last six years. I have a chip on my shoulder this year and I’ve got a lot to prove.”

One man who will be hoping that Britt is finally serious about making use of his potential is Jeff Fisher, who gave the receiver a new two year deal in Saint Louis this off-season. 

Britt was drafted by Fisher when he was the head coach of the Titans back in 2009, with Fisher using the 30th overall pick on the impressive former Rutgers star.
