The Cleveland Browns cut Kenny Britt last week, but he has landed in a great position with a team contending for the Super Bowl this season.

John Dorsey’s first move as Cleveland Browns general manager was cutting Kenny Britt.

The move was seen as a smart one by Browns fans who witnessed an ineffective Britt in 2017. That is, when he was even on the field.

Britt was a bust from the start, but he now has a great chance to salvage both his season and his career.

Britt has signed with the New England Patriots, which will provide him with a great change of scenery after all the losing he was a part of in Cleveland. The fact the Browns still owe him money should help him get over it.

Signing with the Patriots doesn’t mean Britt is going to be a star, but it does show that Bill Belichick may enjoy trolling the Browns more than previously thought. Nothing would be more frustrating to watch than Britt making a big catch in the postseason after an 0-16 season for the Browns.

Britt’s poor play was another knock against Sashi Brown, but it’s also possible his lack of success could be pinned on Hue Jackson. It’s unfortunate that the team’s main offseason signing lasted less than one season of a four-year deal, but it was smart to cut ties in what is essentially a lost season.

We take a look at this and more in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
