Free agent wide receiver Kenny Britt could go from working with last year’s No. 1 overall pick to the year’s No. 2 pick, quarterback Carson Wentz.

The Philadelphia Eagles are reportedly in the market for expanding their young, wide receiving group. They are showing interest in Britt, who worked last season with Mike Groh for the Los Angeles Rams, per ESPN’s Tim McManus.

Groh is now working as the Eagles’ wide receivers coach. Britt would bring his veteran skills across the country if a reunion between the two comes about.

Despite playing with the likes of Case Keenum and Jared Goff last season in Los Angeles, the 28 year-old receiver recorded a career-high 68 catches for 1,002 yards and five touchdowns. It was the first time in Britt’s nine-year career he crossed the 1,000-yard receiving mark.

Britt was originally drafted in the first round by the Tennessee Titans in 2009. He has yet to start for an entire 16-game season. Although based on last year’s stats through 15 games, he could easily be an upgrade to the receiving crew the Eagles currently possess.
