NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Titans will welcome back their most reliable receiving target in former Pro Bowler Delanie Walker.

Walker will be 35 years old when the 2019 starts and is coming off a serious lower right leg injury. These type of injuries can be hard to recover from, especially for someone that is in his mid-thirties.WalkerTwelfthEagles

On the positive side, Walker has always been one of the best conditioned and hardest-workers on the Titans’ roster since he was signed as a free agent in 2013. He has averaged over 70 receptions per season for the Titans and I expect him to reach those numbers again this season.

The Titans drafted Jonnu Smith in the third round of the 2017 draft with the intention of him replacing Walker. Smith has shown flashes of speed and receiving ability, but he has not shown the consistency of being a No. 1 TE in the NFL. Year 3 will be very important for Smith and the Titans' personnel department.
