Whisenhunt shoots down talk that Titans could trade Justin Hunter

There’s been talk in Tennessee that the Titans could trade receiver Justin Hunter. Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt says that talk is preposterous.

“Are you kidding me? That’s not something even in consideration,” Whisenhunt said of trading Hunter, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

Wyatt has written that the Titans are disappointed with Hunter’s inconsistency and want more out of him. And considering how much talent Hunter flashed in the preseason, his statistics — nine catches for 138 yards and no touchdowns — are short of expectations so far this season.

Of course, those issues point to exactly why other teams aren’t likely to give up much of anything to acquire Hunter in a trade. So the Titans will hold onto him, and hope he’ll do more in the future than he’s done since the Titans drafted him last year.

  1. I’d take him to play opposite Josh Gordon for a 4th Rd. pick and maybe add a 7th Rd.

    Unfair?

    “Of course, those issues point to exactly why other teams aren’t likely to give up much of anything to acquire Hunter in a trade.”

    I doubt the Titans are that dumb – Hunter will be a beast.

  2. They’re holding out to get a trade offer of a hot pastrami on rye sandwich for him, instead of the ham and Swiss on white they’ve been offered.

  3. Titans fans would actually march to St Thomas Sports park and drag Whiz and Webster into the street and televise the hanging on channel 4 if they traded Hunter. #GBO #VFL #FireRuston #WhizSucks #TitanUp

  4. If they trade Hunter I will stop supporting them in every way until Webster & Whiz are gone. The kid is a huge talent, his lack of production is mostly on the QB play. Has Kendall Wright had a monster year so far? No? Are we going to trade him too? This is ridiculous. I’d rather risk him flaming out with us & not getting anything in return than to have an extra 4th round pick in next year’s draft.

    Also, no chance they trade Locker. They probably couldn’t get anything more than a 6th round pick for him. And if that’s all you’re getting then why do it?
