Three Quick Hits from Wednesday's Minicamp

Posted Jun 15, 2016

TitansOnline.com Senior Writer and Editor Jim Wyatt offers three quick hits from Wednesday's minicamp practice at Saint Thomas Sports Park.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans just wrapped up the second day of a three-day minicamp on Wednesday at Saint Thomas Sports Park:
 
Three quick hits out of practice:
 
Reppin’ 82

Delanie Walker’s Twitter feed blew up on Tuesday, and when the Pro Bowl tight end found out why, he couldn’t help but smile.
 
The reason: Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh wore Walker’s No.82 jersey while taking part in a satellite camp at Oakland High School while in Murfreesboro.
 
“That’s my guy,’’ Walker said on Wednesday with a smile. “Jim Harbaugh, he is a guy who you never know what he is going to do. He is a character. But I have mad respect for him and I am pretty sure he has respect for me and that is probably why he wore my jersey.”
 
Walker played under Harbaugh while with the 49ers, but said he hasn’t talked to him since he left San Francisco after the 2012 season.
 
“I had over a hundred tweets about it, people telling me about him wearing my jersey. And it’s an honor,’’ Walker said with a smile. “But Jim, nothing he does surprises me. He would show up to practice in full gear, (and sometimes) with no shirt. But he wears those khakis, he always has them on. But Jim Harbaugh is a character that you never know what he is going to do.
 
“But he looked good. He had the jersey tucked in, that’s natural Jim Harbaugh.”
 
Wright stuff

Mularkey praised receiver Kendall Wright at the end of Wednesday’s minicamp.
 
Wright, heading into his fifth NFL season, has been impressive during organized team activities and during the minicamp practices.
 
“Kendall has had a very good offseason,’’ Mularkey said. “He knows we are relying on him, especially in that slot position. I am hoping he’s as pleased as we are with the way he has come out here prepared and been consistent.”
 
Mularkey said he wants receivers to make more plays downfield. He mentioned Tuesday’s minicamp was “as clean a day in the 1 on 1s’ for the receivers as he’s seen this offseason.
 
More reps for Henry

Henry worked a good deal with the starters during Wednesday’s minicamp practice, but Mularkey said part of the reason involved trying to get veteran DeMarco Murray some rest.
 
“He really has done well,’’ Mularkey said of Henry. “He got more reps – and I’m trying to take care of DeMarco as well. There wasn’t any message in there, I am just trying to get him more reps because you see things faster in the NFL than you do at the college level.
 
“I have been pleased with him, but he still has some room (to improve). Too many mental mistakes – going the wrong way protection-wise. But that’s normal for a rookie.”
