Titans have high expectations for WR Justin Hunter

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Titans have high expectations for Justin Hunter in the receiver's second NFL season.

New coach Ken Whisenhunt says he's excited about Hunter and wants the receiver to bring his game to a whole new level to understand how good he really can be. Jake Locker thinks Hunter needs to hold himself to a higher standard because he is that good of a receiver.

The Titans traded up to draft Hunter last year, and he had two 100-yard games as a rookie with four touchdowns. He has changed his eating habits and added about 15 pounds of muscle to help him better survive the 16-game season.

He's also heard what coaches and teammates believe he can do.

Hunter said Tuesday that's just motivation to work harder.
