Kenny Britt Bails Out Convicted Felon
Robinson previously served 18 months of a three-year sentence stemming from two separate gun-related convictions. Although posting bail for someone isn't illegal, Britt's involvement with Robinson does shine a negative light on the Tennessee receiver.
It's possible the NFL will review this incident and levy punishment against Britt as part of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy, and that is something Britt can't afford on the heels of his January 14 arrest for having outstanding tickets.
"In our society, people are judged by the company they keep," Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio told the Reporter. "It's clear that there is a long-standing relationship between the defendant and Mr. Britt. But these charges against the defendant are very serious, one being a homicide-related incident. You can easily see what the guy is all about. A victim was shot to death in Jersey City."
Britt just finished his rookie season with Tennessee after being drafted out of Rutgers in the first round of last year's draft. The 21-year-old receiver ended the year with 42 catches for 701 yards and three touchdowns. He really clicked with quarterback Vince Young when Young was installed as the starter, catching his three touchdowns in three consecutive games in Weeks 11-13.
