The Justin Hunter hype train is now fully out of control.
And we, admittedly, have not done anything to stop it.
Hunter has done nothing but impress so far during training camp and pre-season. From a 64-yard touchdown against New Orleans, to the latest reports from Tennessee Titans insider John Glennon.
From The Tennessean:
Throughout training camp and in the preseason,Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter has made the fade pattern look all too easy.
When the Titans get anywhere near the goal line, quarterback Jake Locker simply lofts a soft spiral toward the corner of the end zone. That’s when the 6-foot-4, 203-pound Hunter turns into a jack-in-the-box, leaping over defenders to haul in a touchdown pass – just as he did in last Friday’s loss to the New Orleans Saints.
It’s been all but unstoppable so far.
That’s certainly great news for Hunter’s quest to rise to the number two receiver on the Titans’ depth chart.
The former Vol currently sits behind Kendall Wright and Nate Washington.
It should be only a matter of time before Hunter takes the number two spot from Washington. If he can continue to be a consistent wide receiver, and play with the toughness the Titans’ demand, then Hunter should be in for a breakout season.
