NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Shawn Jefferson is the kind of coach who wears his cleats during practices to demonstrate exactly what he wants from his Tennessee receivers. He's just as enthusiastic whether celebrating with or chewing someone out.

Titans rookie Justin Hunter has heard plenty both from his position coach and his fellow receivers this training camp.

Offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains says all the yelling can be misleading because the Titans have high expectations for Hunter.

The Titans liked the 6-foot-4, 203-pound Hunter so much coming out of college at Tennessee that they traded up to draft him at No. 34 overall.

Jefferson says he's really pushing the envelope on Hunter and is less frustrated now than he was by a former rookie he once coached named Calvin Johnson.
