Britt, who did not appear in court, was originally charged with a felony (eluding an officer) after his arrest on April 12 but had that charge reduced to misdemeanors because he did not have a criminal record.

According to the (Newark) Star-Ledger, Britt pleaded guilty via affidavit. He must sign the affidavit for the plea to become official.

Britt was arrested in his hometown of Bayonne, N.J., after police said he drove his Porsche at 71 mph in a 55-mph zone and then led police on a chase.

The former Rutgers star has had several other run-ins with authorities. He was arrested last year for three outstanding traffic tickets and is accused of not paying a bail bond he helped secure for a friend.

Nashville police stopped him in August during training camp, and ticketed him for driving without a license because he obtained a photo ID after misplacing his license.

He also was accused of being involved in a bar fight Oct. 22 in Nashville, but authorities later decided not to charge him.

Britt left Rutgers after his junior season and was the Titans' first-round draft pick in 2009. He tied for second on the Titans with 42 catches in 2010 and led all Tennessee receivers with nine touchdowns and an average of 18.5 yards per catch.
