During Super Bowl week, Titans tight end Delanie Walker made headlines when he told Nashville radio station 104.5 FM “The Zone” that there were six to seven players who were “cancer” on the club in 2013.
In an interview with Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean published Sunday, Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said that he’s talked to Walker about his comments.
“The thing about Delanie, I understand him being frustrated, but those kinds of things we don’t want voiced in the public,” Whisenhunt told the Tennessean. “We want to keep those in-house and we want to address those things. We discussed that — [Delanie] and I did — and I am certainly comfortable with how that discussion went, and I don’t think there will be any issues going forward.”
Whisenhunt also told the Tennessean that the players on the roster have a clean slate with him and that he believes the roster is in good shape from a character standpoint.
“I believe we have a lot of the right guys here,” Whisenhunt said, according to the Tennessean.
If the Titans indeed have the right players in the locker room and on the field in 2014, the result could be more wins, which would likely end much discussion of internal concerns in external settings. That’s how it usually works, at least.
