Not so fast.
While it was reported last night that Kenny Britt was headed close to his hometown to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles, reports on Thursday from both ESPN's Adam Caplan and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggest the free-agent WR will sign a four-year deal with the Cleveland Browns.

Britt, enduring subpar quarterback play with the Rams in 2016, had a career year with 68 catches for 1,002 yards and five touchdowns. The Browns came into Thursday with $98 million in cap space, so money isn't a problem for them.
Not only did the report from last night not pan out, it also looks like it may have been inaccurate, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
A reminder that in the age of social media, nothing is official until someone signs on the dotted line.
