Treylon Burks gets a direct message from the New Titans OC.

Nick Holz, the new offensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans, delivered a blunt message to wide receiver Treylon Burks prior to training camp. Burks was essentially drafted to replace the traded AJ Brown, but has fallen short of expectations in his first two NFL seasons. With the Titans loaded at wide receiver, Holz had a pretty firm message for Burks entering the season.

Treylon has a lot of potential. Naturally, you can see all the talent in a first-round pick, said Holz. However, he will receive what he works for. In our two days together, he’s been a terrific man. He gives the impression of being a very engaged learner who truly absorbs and processes the information before applying it to the field. His skill set includes being a large guy with running ability and the ability to make contested receptions. We would really benefit from that enhancement if he could figure out a way to make it happen.

Holz isn’t going to criticize Burks directly, but it seems like the wide receiver needs to put in a lot of effort to fit into the offensive coordinator’s game plan. Who is ahead of Burks on the depth chart determines a lot of that. The targets for Burks might not exist after DeAndre Hopkins was paired with Calvin Ridley.

Burks, the 18th overall choice in the 2022 draft, has caught 49 receptions for 665 yards and one touchdown in his first two NFL seasons. It could possibly be too late for him to establish himself with the Titans.
