Hasselbeck Wants WR Kenny Britt To Step Up As A Leader

Kenny Britt spent a good part of the off-season stepping in it with off-season run-ins with the law, but Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck says he wants Britt to step up. Hasselbeck and the Titans believe Britt is capable of even more than the five-catch, 136-yard, two-TD effort Sunday in Jacksonville. Hasselbeck wants Britt to become a team leader for the Titans the way a true No. 1 receiver should do.

“He’s a playmaker. We’ve got a few playmakers and he’s one of them. He brings a lot of energy to our offense,” Hasselbeck said. “If we can get him to step up as a leader a little bit more, I think that’s probably the next step. He’s a great player, he’s a wonderful talent, but I think we would love to see him step up as a leader of that group and really as a leader on our team and just take the next step.”
