The Titans would love to see what tight end Delanie Walker did during May and June carry over to September and beyond.
According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, Walker was an offseason star who looked good during practices and really worked hard on his blocking skills so he can stay on the field for more plays. Walker is also healthy after spending last offseason, his first in Tennessee, recovering from a knee scope. Wyatt said Walker has become more of a leader, and "all signs point to a big year."
Walker had the biggest year of his career in 2013, blowing past his previous highs to set new benchmarks in receptions (60), yards (571), and touchdowns (6).
Despite Wyatt's claim of a "big year," he said he expects Walker to "be in the 60-catch neighborhood again." It also doesn't help Walker's fantasy value that the Titans want more production out of backup TEs Taylor Thompson and Craig Stevens. Wyatt thinks both of those players will record double-digit receptions after combining for five catches last season. Walker is a mid-range TE2/bye-week option.
