NASHVILLE, Tenn. –** Another Titan is headed to the Pro Bowl – tight end Delanie Walker.
The NFL announced on Tuesday Walker has been added to the Pro Bowl roster. He’ll join three of his teammates -- defensive lineman Jurrell Casey, tackle Taylor Lewan and punter Brett Kern – in the all-star contest in Orlando, Florida.
It will be Walker’s third straight Pro Bowl appearance after also making the team in 2015 and 2016.
Walker led the Titans in catches (74) and receiving yards (807) in 2017, when he scored three touchdowns. During the season, Walker eclipsed the 5,000-yard mark for career receiving yards. He’s now at 5,621 receiving yards after 12 NFL seasons.
Walker was initially named an alternate to the Pro Bowl. He replaces Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce, who is unable to participate due to injury.
The 2018 Pro Bowl will once again feature a return to the traditional AFC vs. NFC game format following three years using a revised, "unconferenced" format.
The game is scheduled for January 28 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.
