Report: Titans sign TE Delanie Walker to two-year extension
The Tennessee Titans have signed tight end Delanie Walker to a new multi-year deal, the team announced Friday.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the deal is worth $14.7 million over two years. His contract, which was set to expire after this season, will now run until 2018.
“Delanie is an integral piece of the offense,’’ Titans general manager Jon Robinson said. “In my short time around him, he came in and bought into our philosophy of what Titan football is going to be about. Obviously he’s a Pro Bowl player with great individual statistics, but his commitment and his desire and willingness to compete to the team concept of wanting to win is as important. We are looking forward to his on-field performance, but his positive impact in the community as well.”
Walker had the best season of his NFL career in 2015, making 94 catches for 1,088 yards and six touchdowns. Last season also marked his first time being chosen for the Pro Bowl.
