5. Delanie Walker, TE
Look. Call this nostalgia or whatever you want, but if we are talking about players that can line up in the slot and make some tough catches, there aren’t many better than Delanie Walker.
MyCole Pruitt is more of a blocker, Jonnu Smith is the do-it-all TE1, and Geoff Swaim is sort of like a hybrid, which leaves you with Anthony Firkser. Normally I would say that there isn’t enough room for two of those types of tight end on a roster, but if the Titans aren’t going to add a wide receiver then they might as well go ahead and call these two receivers.
I wouldn’t ask Walker to come back and block, and maybe he would be a guy that the Titans sign to the practice squad and never get a chance to call him up to the main roster. However, don’t forget that the one game we saw him healthy for last season was the Browns game where he scored two touchdowns.
It would be nice to give Walker a chance to make a play for a team with real Super Bowl aspirations after he put in a lot of blood, sweat and tears into some very bad Titans teams during his time here.
