Treylon Burks is feeling good and breathing so much easier now.
The Titans’ 2022 first-round pick’s first offseason got off on the wrong foot.
Burks was forced to be limited in the team’s offseason program because of asthma attacks and conditioning issues, but things have changed for the better as he is not having any of the same problems this year.
Burks has spent the entire offseason in Nashville as part of “not repeating what I did last year coming into the offseason” and the wideout said on Tuesday that he feels like he’s made strides heading into his second season.

“I would say I feel faster, because I can breathe,” he said. “I feel great. I’m running fast, not having any problems with breathing. Really just having fun, man. I am in a good place, state of mind, and I am just thankful.
“I have been here the whole offseason. I didn’t go train at the beach or anything, I stayed here. I wanted to stay around the facility and bond, make a connection with the coaches but also get ahead on the things that I know I am going to be doing in the offseason.”
The 18th pick overall from Arkansas in the 2022 NFL draft is being looked on to help the team rebound from a 7-10 finish that snapped their three-year playoff run.
They released veteran Robert Woods, who led them in both receptions and yards receiving in 2022 to create some salary space. Austin Hooper, who ranked second with 41 catches, was allowed to walk in free agency. Not to mention, the team traded AJ Brown to the Eagles last offseason.
As of right now, Burks is best known as the player drafted with the selection acquired in Tennessee’s trade of Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Brown to Philadelphia.
Last season, Burks finished tied for third with running back Derrick Henry with 33 catches. He also tied Hooper for third with 444 yards receiving.
Those numbers need to be much better in 2023 if the Titans have any hope of winning some games.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
