Titans WR Treylon Burks Attacking His New Job One Day at a Time


NASHVILLE – Treylon Burks is learning to be a pro, one day at a time.

On Wednesday, the Titans receiver said he feels like he's making strides.

"I feel like it's going pretty good," Burks said after Wednesday's OTA. "I'm just getting adjusted, making sure I am staying on top of everything the coaches are telling me to stay on top of, and playing the game that I love.

"I am just going to keep attacking it like I know how."

Selected with the 18th overall pick of the NFL Draft out of Arkansas, Burks acknowledged everything hasn't been perfect at the start of his NFL journey. Burks left his first day of rookie minicamp practice early last month with breathing issues, and his work has been somewhat limited on other days since.

But Burks feels like he's improving in every area, and his workload continues to increase.

"Everybody is going to have setbacks, it's just how you come back and attack it and keep going," he said. "Every player comes into situations differently. I am just going to attack it every day like I have been and just keep going with the flow. I'm just taking it one day at a time, like coach Vrabel tells me, and everything else will take care of itself.

"I am just coming out here to play football for the Tennessee Titans, and I'm grateful for my opportunities."

Burks, who is wearing his old college number (16) in Tennessee, caught 66 passes for 1,104 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Razorbacks in 2021 to earn first-team All-SEC honors.

In 2020, Burks led the Razorbacks with 51 catches, 820 yards (16.1 ypc) and seven touchdowns.

Vrabel said Burks got in some "good work" on Wednesday.

"We're excited to have Treylon," Vrabel said. "He has gotten better each day that he's been here."

Burks said his teammates have been supportive, and he's getting more comfortable with quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the team's other QBs each day.

"Just keep playing ball and everything else will take of itself," he said. "Just taking it one day at time, learning his game and he's learning my game."

So, what's next?

"Stay on top of my plays, stay on top of conditioning," Burks said, "and all of that and everything else will (take care) of itself."
