Titans change Justin Hunter's name on jersey to remind receiver of need to focus on details

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt and receivers coach Shawn Jefferson tried to send a message to receiver Justin Hunter on Monday.

Instead of his name, the receiver found "J A G" on the back of his practice jersey, for "Just Another Guy."

Hunter said after practice that he forgot to convert a route in practice. Both Whisenhunt and Jefferson talked to him about needing to be precise. Hunter, a second-round pick in 2013, says he didn't think his lapse was that serious.

Then Hunter says Jefferson had the name on the receiver's jersey changed.

Hunter says teammates have been giving him plenty of grief over the name.

But he says the name will come off as long as he keeps performing in practice.
