Titans say 'all signs point' to Justin Hunter 'having a really good year'
Titans WR Justin Hunter has done a good job focusing on football through 10 training camp practices. We still see the periodic drop, but he’s been more consistent.
“A lot of times, new receivers come into the league with the physical tools, but the mentality hasn’t caught up,” receivers coach Shawn Jefferson said. “We’re seeing his mental catch up to his physical skills now. He’s making some plays. It’s like now he expects to make them, when before he was unsure. He goes to the line now like, ‘Give me this rock.’ And that’s what you want to see.”
“There comes a time we’ve got to s--- or get off the pot, and this is his moment,” Jefferson said. “All signs point to him having a really good year this year.”
We're in the we'll-believe-it-when-we-see-it stage of grief. There is plenty of opportunity in the Titans' passing game, but Hunter has to beat out two experienced veterans -- Harry Douglas and Hakeem Nicks -- and a talented rookie -- Dorial Green-Beckham -- if he hopes to play starter's snaps.
