Titans tight end Delanie Walker had a career-high 60 catches last season, playing well in his first year in Tennessee after spending the first seven years of his career in San Francisco. But Walker isn’t even close to satisfied.
In fact, Walker says he expects to catch about 20 more passes this year than he did last year.
“I’ve got to get better,” Walker told the team’s website. “I’m looking to catch 80 balls this year.”
The story points out that the 80-catch mark was surpassed by only two tight ends last season, Jimmy Graham with 86 and Tony Gonzalez with 83. If Walker could get into the 80s, he’d be among the elite tight ends in the NFL. We project Walker for 60 catches and have him ranked 14th at the position.
