There is no denying that the Los Angeles Rams offense wasn’t good in 2016, but they did have one bright spot in Kenny Britt.

The eight-year veteran had a career year in 2016, catching 68 passes for 1,002 yards and five touchdowns in 15 games.

Britt was in a contract year though, so his likelihood of returning to the Rams was slim to begin with, and now it appears that he will be headed elsewhere.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Britt has agreed to a contract with the Cleveland Browns:

Britt is heading to a team that was 1-15 last season and does not look to be much better in 2017. The signing of Britt makes sense for Cleveland though, as they will likely be losing their top receiver from last year Terrell Pryor in free agency.

The Rams did not waste any time in replacing Britt, as they have reportedly agreed to sign former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Robert Woods. The Los Angeles native played his college ball at USC so he will be returning to the Coliseum.

In eight NFL seasons Britt has caught 309 passes for 4,881 yards and 30 touchdowns. He has dealt with some injuries in the past but stayed mostly healthy in 2016, playing in 15 games.
