Titans activate Delanie Walker from PUP list

When tight end Delanie Walker signed with the Titans as a free agent, the team talked about the big plans they had for him in their offense this season.

They haven’t had much of a chance to implement those plans as Walker has been dealing with a knee problem that required him to undergo a scope shortly before the start of training camp. That led to a spot on the PUP list and a frustrating summer of watching practice for Walker.

Monday brought an end to the status quo. The Titans announced that Walker has been activated for PUP, which means he can start practicing and playing in preseason games. It’s unclear if Walker will be able to play in either of the two exhibitions left on Tennessee’s schedule after spending so much time on the shelf, but the fact that it is a possibility is a step in the right direction for both team and player.

Walker had 21 catches for 344 yards and three touchdowns as a complement for Vernon Davis with the 49ers last season.

    If he is healthy, he can be a big part of the Titan’s offense

    This guy is a nice player. Would have been a starter a while ago if not for having Vernon on his team. Now is his time to shine

    Don’t know what kind of player he’ll be in the passing game until there’s an opportunity to see him in action for a few weeks, but really impressed by Walker’s personality and his track record as the kind of guy who can give them H-back looks as well as be a solid inline-blocker.

    Looking forward to finally seeing him on the field soon.

    If he can clean up last year’s drops, he’s a top 5 NFL tight end when featured. Does the little things well too. Beast!

    Good luck Delanie!

    This 49ers fan will miss your contributions and leadership this year!
