Burks caught 33 passes for 444 yards and a touchdown in 2022 while playing in 11 games, with six starts.
Burks was sidelined during the midway portion of the season with a toe injury, and he battled through other ailments as well.
But Burks showed glimpses of special things as a rookie, and he’s looking to build on that in 2023.
“I feel great,” Burks said. “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.”
With a new year comes even bigger expectations for Burks.
The Titans signed veteran receiver Chris Moore earlier this offseason, and drafted receiver Colton Dowell in the seventh round of the NFL Draft. The Titans have added a number of undrafted free agents as well.
But the core of the group from a year ago, is back, aside from Robert Woods being released. Woods later joined the Texans.
“I would just say my goal is to make plays for the team, be where I am supposed to be,” Burks said when asked if his goal is to be WR1 on the roster, “and be a great teammate.
“(I want to) play fast, be physical and be versatile.”
