Titans tight end and Pro Bowl Offensive MVP Delanie Walker joins NFL Total Access after the #ProBowl
The AFC trailed by six with a first-and-10 in the red zone. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr knew what to do next. He found virtually unguardable Titans tight end Delanie Walker.
First, Delanie Walker was swarmed by AFC teammates, many of them Titans.
Later, he was swarmed by family and friends.
It was all part of a memorable night for the Titans tight end, who was named Offensive MVP of the 2018 Pro Bowl after making the game-winning touchdown catch in the closing moments of the AFC’s 24-23 win over the NFC here at Camping World Stadium....
“It’s special,” a smiling Walker said on the field after the game. “It feels good to have all these people here who care about me, and support me. And it always feels good to represent the Titans organization. To get this done and honor the Titans, I’m very happy.”
Delanie Walker’s favorite ride in this theme park wonderland is at Universal Studios.
The Titans tight end is all about adrenalin rushes, and the ‘Rip Ride Rockit’ gets it done.
“Oh man, the Rockit,” Walker said with a smile. “It goes up and it drops real fast.”...
Walker’s NFL career has been the opposite. He’s kept going up, with no drop off.
The 12th year pro this week is enjoying his third straight Pro Bowl.
“I think what Delanie has done in his career, and in Tennessee, has been impressive,” Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, an 11-time Pro Bowler, said. “Delanie is a guy who was a rotational player in San Francisco, and once he got an opportunity in Tennessee he has taken his skillset to another level.
“He has evolved as a player, and as a blocker. He is consistent. Some guys can show flash, but to be able to play like that week in and week out, Delanie has proven he is one of the best at the position.”
Titans tight end Delanie Walker will play in his third consecutive Pro Bowl after the first-alternate was named as an injury replacement for Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.
Walker joins three teammates – defensive lineman Jurrell Casey, left tackle Taylor Lewan and punter Brett Kern – in the league’s annual all-star game on Jan. 28 in Orlando, Fla.
Take special note of what Delanie had to say to Marcus and Mularkey. Next up for Walker and the Tennessee Titans are the New England Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs on Saturday night.
