Tennessee Titans sign TE Delanie Walker

I really didn’t think anyone would sign Delanie Walker other than the 49ers. Because of his specific role in their system, he was more valuable to them as a 2nd tight end than to anyone else. Apparently the Titans disagreed as they outbid the 49ers for him and will pay him like a starter, giving him 4 years, 17.5 million with 8.6 million guaranteed. He’s a very good blocker, but his 11 drops to 26 catches last year were by far the worst in the league and they will be very disappointed if they expect him to replace Jared Cook. They’ll have to hope 2nd year player Taylor Thompson catches on as a pass catching complement to Walker because Walker is pretty much just a blocker.
