Kenny Britt stood his ground on Wednesday.

The Titans wide receiver defended his latest social-media comment and his effort as a player. He bristled at the suggestion he’s selfish. He said he’d love to play for the Titans next year.

At this early stage of the season there’s little reason to believe the Titans would want him back however. So for now the team and the fifth-year pro in the final year of his contract must make the best of an awkward situation.

“I have no problem with Kenny. He is fine. He is working hard. He is part of our football team and he is going to help us win on Sunday” coach Mike Munchak said. “We are fine going forward.”

Yet as the Titans (1-1) stepped up preparations for Sunday’s game against the Chargers (1-1) there was plenty of fallout from Britt’s display of frustration via Twitter.

On Monday Munchak said Britt was removed briefly last Sunday to allow him to “refocus” after being flagged for holding — his third penalty and second for holding in two games. Coaches have also expressed dissatisfaction with his blocking and route running.

After the benching made headlines Tuesday Britt tweeted: “Looks like the Titans pullin that Jared Cook card .. Looking like this the last year ill be sayin #TitanUp .. So lets make it a Great year.” The post drew national attention.

On Wednesday Britt said the post resulted from his frustration over criticism and he denied he has been a lackadaisical blocker. But he again referred to Cook a tight end the Titans opted not to re-sign when his contract expired last season.

“I am not a selfish person and I really don’t care about getting the ball or anything like that” Britt said. “It’s just a point of them saying they took me out because of (blocking). Were they wrong for benching me? I believe so. And I believe the excuse they gave was wrong because at that point in time when they did bench me it had nothing to do with me having mistakes.

“… I saw what happened with Cook last year and them saying he wasn’t getting the ball because he was making mistakes. I don’t think that was the case last year and I don’t think that’s the case with me this year.”

The Titans have no plans to discipline Britt Munchak said though this is the third time the receiver created a stir with social-media posts. General manager Ruston Webster told Britt to stop airing his frustrations through such outlets.

Munchak hesitated to criticize Britt when asked about his performance. In two games he has five catches for 43 yards.

“I don’t think anyone has been perfect” he said. “He has made mistakes. I have made mistakes. Every guy in the offense has made mistakes.”
