2014 stat line: 28 receptions, 498 yards, 3 touchdowns
What did Shawn Jefferson have to say:
“His mentality has totally changed. It looks like he is ready to take the jump. Justin is extremely talented and has great ability. Now, his mentality is catching up to his physical skills. I really like what I have seen out of Justin.”
This is maybe the single-most important piece of news in this article. Jefferson has always been tough on the enigmatic receiver, and at times he seemed so fed up that he was just trying to get him to quit.
Now, Jefferson is praising his mental ability and essentially saying that Justin Hunter is finally committed to utilizing his outstanding physical attributes.
Everything we see from camp is that Justin Hunter is trending upwards and if he can be “all in” and have a quarterback who has done nothing but impress Tennessee Titans beat writers and coaches then the sky is the limit.
