Kenny Britt signs two-year deal with New England Patriots

After plenty of speculation, the New England Patriots have officially signed veteran wide receiver Kenny Britt, according to multiple sources.

Britt was released by the Cleveland Browns last Friday just hours after the team hired John Dorsey to be their next general manager. The veteran wide receiver was in the first year of a four-year contract he signed with the Browns last offseason. In his only season in Cleveland, Britt caught 18 passes for 233 yards and 2 touchdowns.

The allure of winning a Super Bowl ring is clearly what attracted Britt to the Patriots. According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Britt chose the Patriots over offers from the Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Patriots made several additional roster moves on Wednesday afternoon, re-signing defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois, releasing linebacker Jonathan Freeny and wide receiver Bernard Reedy, and placing right tackle Marcus Cannon on season-ending Injured Reserve.

The Patriots take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday with first place in the AFC up for grabs.
