Ken Whisenhunt and Mike Pettine have denied trade rumors that have underperforming
"There's no basis for that," Whisenhunt told the Akron Beacon Journal.
Hunter has just nine catches for 138 yards and no touchdowns. He managed just one reception for 12 yards in Week 4. The Browns lost premier receiver Josh Gordon through Week 12 to a drug suspension, but have received strong production from Andrew Hawkins and Miles Austin.
Hunter's biggest gaffe in the game came on the team's second offensive drive when he allowed a pass from Charlie Whitehurst to bounce off his hands and the deflection was picked off by a Colts defender.
After the game, Whisenhunt said Hunter and fellow wide receiver Kendall Wright, who fumbled on the first drive, let the team down, according to The Tennesseean. Whisenhunt added Hunter is going to be a good player, but he has to clear some hurdles.
"I am disgusted with myself. I have to play better," said Hunter, who has nine catches for 138 yards and no touchdowns in four games.
The Titans are back in action Week 5 vs. Cleveland.

Against the Colts, only
At this point, Delanie Walker is the only member of the Titans' receiving corps you want to be relying on. It will be hard to start Kendall Wright with Whitehurst throwing to him, and Hunter and Washington might not be worth owning at this point.
The Titans have thrown the ball plenty to their trio of wide receivers (15-plus targets for each through three games), but
You've likely been disappointed with the play of your Titans' receivers so far, assuming you haven't cut them yet. Given the uncertainty surrounding their quarterback spot, it is hard to see things getting much better in Week 4.
Hunter has received 21 targets over his first three games, but he's only managed to record eight receptions for 126 receiving yards and no touchdowns. He managed to put his team in field-goal range with his first reception in the second quarter Sunday, but the eventual attempt missed wide right. Three of his four incomplete targets came during the team's final drive of the fourth quarter. Hunter will look for his first breakout performance of the season when the Titans face the Colts in Week 4.
