The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with free agent TE Delanie Walker, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers. Walker is fresh off a season where he averaged 16.4 yards a catch, though he only recorded 344 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Tians and 49ers TE Delanie Walker reached agreement in a principle on a four-year deal.

So the Titans have made it official and moved on from TE Jared Cook, who they had so desperately wanted to keep.
Walker seems to be another athletic TE in the mold of cook, coming in at 6’0 and 244 lbs. One of his biggest negatives comes from his number of drops at the end of the 2012 season, which slightly worries me, considering he’s had some pretty limp wristed QBs compared to the heat that Jake Locker has been known to throw.
The Titans have hit their three biggest weaknesses in free agency already, having signed a safety (George Wilson), and having agreed to terms with OL Andy Levitre and now TE Delanie Walker. They still need to address defensive end, as well as add depth all along the offensive line, but this is a great start for the Titans.
