NFL Free Agency: Delanie Walker signs with Titans

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

Multiple sources are reporting that the Titans have agreed to terms with TE Delanie Walker.

The Titans have agreed to terms with San Francisco's TE/FB Delanie Walker. I really like this signing as Walker can be used in a hybrid role and on special teams. He hasn't been used a lot as a receiving tight end as star TE Vernon Davis is entrenched as a starter in SF. Walker as a replacement to Jared Cook is more than ideal considering the ways he can be used compared to Cook's limited skill set as a blocker.

Ruston Webster and company are on fire right now with this signing and the Levitre signing. The front office is finally seeing the holes on this team and going about fixing those problems instead of being passive like in years past. It's a refreshing thing to see.

From Kuharsky, here is Scouts Inc. on Walker:

"Walker is an excellent player who fills a lot of roles for the 49ers. He is used as an inline tight end as well as an H-back or lead fullback. He is a very good route runner who is quick on his release and has the ability to drop his hips to get in and out of his breaks with foot quickness and a burst to separate. He is quick to read coverages and has become a solid third-down option, coming up with clutch receptions. He is not a powerful inline blocker but will show effort and some pop and power as a lead blocker."

UPDATE (Salary is now official)
