The 25-year-old's contract with the Tennessee Titans ran out at the end of the 2013 season, and now Britt is looking for a new team and has visited the Patriots as well as the Buffalo Bills in the past week.
Britt told ESPN: "It was actually better than I thought it was. A lot of guys, a lot of people out there that don't know or been on the inside or think it's strict and things like that, but it's laid back when I got there.
"They got good people there. I actually worked out for them. The workout went great. I had a good time."
Britt has recorded 157 receptions for 2,450 yards along with 19 touchdowns in his five-year NFL career.
