The Tennessee Titans announced Friday that they’ve signed TE Delanie Walker to a contract extension.
- Ian Rapoport reports that Walker receives a two-year extension worth $14.7 million with $8.2 million in guaranteed.
“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, 31, was entering the final year of his four-year, $17.5 million contract that included $8.6 million guaranteed and was set to make a base salary of $4.275 million in 2016.
In 2015, Walker appeared in 15 games for the Titans and caught 94 passes for 1,088 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 2 tight end out 67 of qualifying players.
