Patriots pick up wide receiver Kenny Britt's 2018 option

Patriots pick up wide receiver Kenny Britt's 2018 option

Britt holds a $1.5 million option for the 2018 campaign that he signed last season when he was picked up off waivers by the Patriots. The team just had to exercise a $150,000 option bonus to kick in the second year, and Britt has recently been informed of the team's intention to do so (first reported by NFL Network).

According to the report, the Patriots are "looking for big things out of him" this season with the status of tight end Rob Gronkowski still up for grabs.

My opinion is that Britt's return shouldn't have an impact on Danny Amendola (an unrestricted free agent) and his potential return. That one season came back in 2016 when he was a member of the Los Angeles Rams, catching 66 passes for 1,002 yards and five touchdowns.

He struggled tremendously in his nine games with the Browns, hauling in 18 receptions for 233 yards and two touchdowns.
