Dump on Delanie Walker?
Jim DrinkAMiller asked a legitimate question. If Delanie Walker had such bad hands, why did the Titans give him such a great contract. I thought it was probably because they valued his blocking which is fabulous and need a quick blocker for Chris Johnson. But, when I looked at this Football Outsiders analysis of tight ends, I really was a little perplexed that they would give him that good a contract because he really didn't measure up very well last year.
Basically, they have Vernon ranked 7th and 8th out of 49 tight ends in what they think are their most important statistical markers.
The same analysis has Delanie ranked 31st and 32nd out of 49. I'm still pissed at him for that Rams game, but even I wouldn't have thought he would rank that low.
