Playing for a contending team was reported to be his preference, as if it should matter if he wants an opportunity to play, with the New England Patriots mentioned easily as a potential landing spot.
One week ago, Kenny Britt was stuck in the mud with the worst team in football.
Britt was released by the NFL's basement team only to land in one of the league's penthouse suites.
Cannon started the first seven of the first eight games of the season at right tackle, but has missed the last five games with an ankle injury.
According to ESPN's Field Yates, the decision was pretty quick.
After topping 1,000 yards for the Los Angeles Rams last year, Kenny Britt signed a four-year, $32.5 million deal with the Cleveland Browns.
The receiver played collegiately at Rutgers under then-head coach Greg Schiano, as did current Patriots safeties Duron Harmon and Devin McCourty.
How Britt fits into the offense will bear watching.
"Brady had success throwing to Danny Amendola, who had six catches on nine targets for 76 yards, but he had serious trouble throwing to outside weapons Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan". Previous year in mid-December, the team claimed Michael Floyd off waivers following his release by the Cardinals after a DUI arrest.
Tom Brady isn't getting any extra rest this week. Floyd was a healthy scratch for the AFC Chamionship Game and the Super Bowl.
