Hunter trying to keep his feet for Titans


NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- At least twice in Tennessee Titans practice on Sunday, Justin Hunter hit the ground when he could have been making his break or making a catch.

The second-year wide receiver had a lot of unsteady moments on his feet in 2013. While he's far more comfortable catching the ball now, he's still having instances where he's too quick for his own good.

"I see him being overeager at times, and that's part of being out of control and being young," Ken Whisenhunt said. "We're going to continue to work on that. Make no mistake about it, the guy's a talented young player."

Hunter said that was a fair assessment.

"I was just trying to be a little bit too fast," Hunter said. "They want me to focus on being patient sometimes. That's going to help me get out of the routes a lot faster. I just try to rush it sometimes because I was open, you try to get out real fast to get the ball. I understand where he's coming from.

"I see like Derek Hagan, his routes, he's being patient and just going with the route and getting the ball. I need to slow myself up a little bit."
