Titans Expect Justin Hunter To Participate In Training Camp Despite Recent Arrest

Sources tell ESPN’s Ed Werder that the Titans will allow the legal process to play out in regards to WR Justin Hunter‘s recent arrest for felonious assault in Virginia Beach.

  • Werder adds that Tennessee expects to have Hunter participate in their upcoming training camp.

Hunter wound up turning himself in Monday after a warrant was filed in relation to an incident that occurred earlier in July.

The Virginia Beach Sheriff’s office lists the charges against Hunter as “malicious intent, stabbing, cutting and wounding” the victim.

Police responded to a call of a large fight in which a victim was to a hospital for injuries sustained during the incident.

Investigators have pegged Hunter as a suspect in the case, but investigation is still ongoing.

Hunter, 24, still has two years remaining on his four-year, $5.424 million rookie contract and stands to make base salaries of $898,104 and $1,144,656 over the next two years.

Since the Titans used a second-round selection on him back in 2013, Hunter has yet to live up to expectations. In fact, the Titans wound up using another second-round pick on Dorial Green-Beckham and a seventh-round pick Tre McBride, so it’s clear that the pressure is on Hunter this season.

In 2014, Hunter Hunter appeared in 12 games for the Titans and recorded 28 receptions for 498 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
