Biography

 
PRO: The Titans targeted Delanie Walker early in the 2013 free agency period to bring physicality and versatility to the offense. The tight end spent the first seven years of his career with the San Francisco 49ers.  His impact with the Titans was immediate, as he became the only tight end in franchise history other than Frank Wycheck to reach 60 receptions in a single season.  The 6-foot, 248-pounder brings a unique element to the offense and poses match-up problems for defenses with his ability to line up in the backfield, on the line, in the slot and as a wideout.  The Central Missouri State product utilizes his speed and athleticism not only on offense, but also on special teams, totaling 61 special teams tackles during his first eight seasons.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    In 2013, Walker’s first season in Tennessee, he totaled 60 receptions for 571 yards and six touchdowns, setting career highs in all three categories.  Also, he became the only tight end in franchise history other than Titans Ring of Honor member Frank Wycheck (1997–2001) to reach 60 receptions in a single season.  Walker’s six touchdown receptions tied for fourth place in franchise history among tight ends and were the most since Wycheck’s six in 1996.
•    In 2012, Walker played an integral role in the 49ers’ second consecutive playoff season, as he teamed with Vernon Davis to form one of the NFL’s top tight-end duos.  He saw action in all 16 regular-season games with four starts and set a career high with 344 yards and three touchdowns (matched career high) on 21 receptions.  His average of 16.4 yards per catch was the highest among all NFL tight ends with 20 or more catches.
•    During the 2012 playoffs, Walker appeared in all three games and started in Super Bowl XLVII.   In the Super Bowl, he recorded three receptions for 48 yards.
•    In 2011, appeared in 15 games with seven starts and caught 19 passes for 198 yards with three touchdowns.
•    In 2010, played in 14 games with eight starts and tallied a career-best 29 receptions for 331 yards.

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    Walker has teamed with Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD) to help raise awareness about their campaign after losing his aunt and uncle in a horrific accident near New Orleans just hours after Super Bowl XLVII.  The morning after San Francisco’s loss to Baltimore at the Superdome, an alleged drunk driver killed Alice and Bryan Young. A few hours earlier, Walker had hugged Alice and Bryan at the team’s postgame party. He wants to start a foundation to keep memories of them alive and also help support his eight cousins left behind.
•    Over the years, Walker has owned quite a selection of cars, ranging from classics to newer models. His collection has included a 1964 Chevy Impala, 1972 Buick Skylark, 1989 Camaro IROC-Z28, 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG and 2010 F250 truck. Walker’s passion for cars can be traced back to his childhood, where he would spend countless hours refurbishing old autos with the help of his friend’s father, who was a mechanic. “Growing up we didn’t have much money, so we would buy cars from the junkyard and fix them up. We’d spend all day taking off parts and replacing them, just like new. The most important lesson I learned was ‘the way you take it off is the way you put it back on.’” Walker admits that cars these days have become more advanced and that he is only comfortable working on models that are pre-1990. After his playing days are over, he envisions owning a car restoration shop.
•    Having grown up in a tough neighborhood, Walker knows first-hand how difficult it is to overcome obstacles in order to achieve one’s goals.  During his time in San Francisco, he visited delinquent youths across the Bay Area, making it a point to share his story and give positive reinforcement to those who can relate to him. “It’s very important that people know about what I’ve been through. You can grow up in the worst neighborhood and still make it to the NFL. That’s why I want kids, especially in the Bay Area, to understand that you can overcome those situations, because I did.”
•    For a 248-pound tight end, Walker makes a lot of tacklers miss. His speed on the field can be linked to his success on the track as a high school senior. Despite lettering only one year, he won the Division III 100m (10.6) and long jump (21-5) titles, while also serving as a member of the winning 4x100m relay team at the 2002 Miramonte League Meet. Delanie’s younger brother, Anthony, competed in the 400m and 4x400m at the collegiate level, and has his hopes set on making the Olympic team one day.

•    His two kickoff returns for touchdowns in 2004 tied a school season-record first set by Walter Rhome in 1971, and his three kickoff returns for scores tied CMSU’s all-time record also held by Rhome (1969-72).
•    Spent his first two seasons (2002-03) at Mt. San Antonio (Calif.) Community College and appeared in 19 games.
•    Caught 199 total passes for 2,659 yds. and 23 touchdowns in 39 contests during his collegiate career.
•    Majored in video production, with a minor in criminal justice at Central Missouri.
