Former Tennessee Titans and San Francisco 49ers tight end Delanie Walker could be headed back to where his NFL career began.
The 36-year-old free agent is flying to Santa Clara for a workout with the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported.
Walker began his career in San Francisco, spending seven years in the Bay after the team selected him in the sixth round of the 2006 draft. Walker compiled 1,465 yards and eight TDs from 2006-2012 with the Niners, Around the NFL reports.
When Walker arrived in Tennessee in 2013, his production skyrocketed. The pass-catcher made three Pro Bowls in seven seasons with the Titans. He compiled 4,423 yards and 28 TDs on 381 receptions.
He played in just eight games between 2018-2019 and sat out the 2020 season after being released by Tennessee because of concerns regarding age and injury.
Now, Around the NFL reports that a reunion in San Francisco could bring his career full circle. Currently on the roster is star TE George Kittle, Ross Dwelley, 2020 sixth-round pick Charlie Woerner and undrafted free agent Josh Pederson.
We’ll see how the workout goes after a full year off.
