NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Britt is headed to visit the Washington Redskins today, per a source informed of the situation.
The 30-year-old sat out the 2018 season after being cut by the New England Patriots during training camp while dealing with a hamstring injury. Britt worked out with the Pats in September but didn't sign with the club.
The best year of Britt's career came in 2016 with the L.A. Rams, when the 6-foot-3 wideout generated 1,002 yards on 68 catches with 5 TDs. That season earned him a handsome four-year contract from the Cleveland Browns in 2017. Britt, however, made it just nine games into that deal before being cut. He landed with the Patriots for three games to close out the regular season.
Familiarity between the QB and WR is a bonus. The Redskins also desperately need depth at the wideout position behind Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson and rising slot receiver Trey Quinn. Britt is likely just a flier at this stage of his wandering 10-year career, but if healthy could provide a veteran presence to a receiver corps in need.
