He’s not a proven commodity.
The story of Britt’s eight season career is he has a lot of potential but has had little production.
In six seasons with the Titans, and two with the Rams, Britt surpassed 1,000 yards only one time, which was 2016 (his most recent contract season).

Britt posted career highs in receptions (68), and yards (1,002) with the Rams in 2016, but in his seven previous seasons, Britt never surpassed 50 receptions or 1,000 yards receiving.
Bad quarterback play isn’t an excuse either. Jordan Matthews has been able to post numbers that resemble that of Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson despite playing with the likes of Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, and Nick Foles.
If the Eagles are going to spend $5-10 million on a receiver, the point was to get one with a proven track record. They have enough question marks at the position already.
