We will get a good comp pick for him. His salary is solid at over four million a year, and he will get tons of playing time with the Titans.
i am sorry, but what talent is that?? his blocking i guess,, his route running i guess. he can not be counted on to catch a pass. to me signing like this are made by desperate teams. hope he took the teams jugs machine with him as he will need it,, not that it will help him in my opinion

I've had AT&T Wireless for over 5 years and never dropped nearly as many calls as Walker did passes.

The (former) most overrated player on the team is no longer around. Big deal.
6 great years on the niners for a 6th rounder pick
I won't miss his hands.

Good luck in Tennessee D-Lay. Money well deserved. Great team player, gonna miss our "joker."
Never forget his 4th down TD winning catch at Detroit. Delanie, you were our chicken and waffles.
Overrated

Always seemed to be the easy ones he missed and the tough ones he hung on to, IMO.

This. ^^ he will be hard to replace though IMO.

Agreed. The other factor is that he has the skills to be a #1 guy in this league and was never going to get there on the 49ers roster. This team will miss him more than most might think as having both Walker and Davis hands down on the line was no direct tip off as to run or pass. Coach Harbaugh would not have had as great a success innovating the run game without the presence of Walker. In fact, I'd argue Delanie Walker has a better feel for where he needs to be on the field than Vernon does, his only real weakness being that is prone to butter fingers disease.

Good job on your blocking assignments, won't miss your bad hands and occasional fumbles.

we will miss your drop passes.

GTFO
Between Walker and Goldson...12.61 mil. per year to hold on to them.

Yeah I am ok with letting those boys mosey off into the sunset at that price.
