First-year Tennessee Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt will no doubt like to open up the offense more than it has ever been before, as he has done every other place that he has gone in his coaching career. This could only means good things for tight end Delanie Walker, who could be poised for a breakout season in 2014.
Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, who covers the Titans closer than anyone else around the country, expects just that from Walker, as he says all signs are pointing toward positive things for the eight-year veteran.
Delanie Walker. A year ago, he was frustrated because arthroscopic knee surgery limited his work in organized team activities and forced him to start training camp on the Physically Unable to perform list. This offseason he was a full participant and looked good. He’s also become more of a leader in his second season with the Titans. All signs point to a big year.
Walker is getting set for his second year with the Titans after spending the first seven years of his career with the San Francisco 49ers. In 15 games last year, Walker caught 60 balls for 571 yards and six scores.
But again, with the way Whisenhunt likes to utilize the tight end in his offensive scheme, should Walker stay healthy, a bid for a 1,000-yard season might not be out of the question.
