Tennessee Titans receivers coach Shawn Jefferson had some big praise for second-year wideout Justin Hunter.

The Titans didn't have the strongest receiving corps last year, so it may be on Hunter to improve that this year. Nate Washington is the veteran receiver on the squad, with Kendall Wright making a leap a year ago.

Perhaps now it's Hunter's time to step up. His position coach sure thinks so.

"He can be the receiver that puts us in the playoffs, and helps us win our division," Jefferson told The Tennesseean. "With the growth he is going to go through, if he can keep progressing he can be the receiver that puts us over the edge.
