Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks has had a disappointing start to his NFL career, but his teammates have not lost confidence in him.

Veteran wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins took to social media to make it clear that the Titans have not "doubted" Burks' ability to turn the corner as he enters his third year in the league.

Hopkins also spoke highly of Burks when he met with reporters at OTAs, saying he believes he can have a productive 2024 campaign.

"Treylon is one of the most athletic people I've ever played with, as big as he is and as fast as he is. So I'm looking forward to seeing what he does this year," Hopkins said.

The No. 18 pick in the 2022 NFL draft, Burks has been limited to 11 games in each of his first two seasons due to toe and knee injuries. He has career numbers of 49 catches for 665 yards and one touchdown in his 22 appearances.

The Titans are certainly hoping that Burks can stay healthy and be a key contributor while they chase a return to the playoffs this season.
