Delanie Walker?
Thu Feb 14, 2013 7:12 pm
  • He is a free agent this year, not sure if the 9ers are going to offer him a new contract. I think he will get around middle of the pack starting TE money, and if that's the case I wouldn't mind us trying to sign him. Mccoy showed up abit at the end of the season, but I think walker would def be a upgrade at the position.

    What do you guys think? We obviously know that PC/JS wanna upgrade the position(Winslow/Moore) and just haven't had much luck....I'd def support the move...

    explain your poll decision, or write in another answer if you have one.

    wouldn't exactly call it a no brainer, he said before the 2012 season he would like to return, but if he gets offered more money, and/or a starting job...I think he will be gone, its a business first and foremost...plus we said the same thing about Carlson...now he's on the vikings.

  • He's overrated just because he was in the Super Bowl and had a few good games. He's only 6' and I don't think his hands are that great. We'd be overpaying For uncertainty. Of all TE FA's I prefer Jared Cook. Most upside without the name-brand cost.

  • I don't get the LOVE FEST for Delanie Walker.

    Look at the stats-- He's the size of a FB: 6-0,242 lbs.

    Walker- 21 catches, 344 yards, 16.4 avg, 3-TD's.- 7 years in the league, 28 years old (29 in AUG), never had more than 30 catches, and set career highs for yards and TD's this year.

    McCoy- 18 catches, 291 yards, 16.2 avg, 3- TD's- 3rd year in the league, 25 (26 in DEC). However , McCoy is 6-5, 260

    There's virtually no difference between the 2 in terms of production,

    Jared Cook- 44 catches, 523 yards, 11.9 avg, 4 TD's, Turns 26 in APR- 6-5, 248, pass catcher. IMO Cook is much more dynamic than Walker, Cook could be that moving TE that PC has been seeking (ala Winslow). He's not the best blocker, he doesn't need to be. In 2011, he had over 700 receiving with a 15 yard avg. His size speed, age, production all are better than Walker's. So why exactly do people fawn over a more athletic version of Michael Robinson?

    Yuk?

    Why?

    The dude is a great run blocker and has incredible speed. What exactly don't you like about him? And what would Keller bring that Walker doesn't? Keller is so bad in the blocking game that the Jets barely bothered to ever line him up like a traditional TE.

    Not that I would mind Keller, but I think Walker is a better option (especially as a 2nd TE) AND cheaper.

    Walker is also a pretty dam good blocker, and Iv watched tape on him, they use him as a decoy alot, go back and watch some of this past seasons games, he was open alot, specially when Kap was QB. Walker is much more well rounded, not saying we must go out and sign him, just trying to get a conversation going for a boring offseason....And look at Vernon Davis's stats after Kap took over, he didn't have crazy stats either...doesn't mean he's bad obvi

    I'm in the "lovefest" camp for Walker - but I think Jared Cook would be great too (or instead). Walker is, size wise closer to an H-back than a TE, but he can run block very well, and he has elite speed. I think if we COULD get Walker, it would be cheaper than Cook (who I would be fine with, shoot, I'd be THRILLED).

    But just keep in mind that Walker has been playing behind a top 5 TE for his whole career, and although he's on the field more than most #2 TE's, he's been playing with 1 read QB's in Smith and Kaepernick.

    Just my opinion, but I've thought the dude was a stud for a while and would love to have him.

    I don't think he'll be back to be honest. I think the 49ers are looking at a bigger sized TE that can be more effective in the end zone. Walker is a good player who would help make Seattles offense better...I hope he doesn't sign in Seattle for my own selfish reasons.

  • Titans have already said they're going to franchise Jared Cook if they can't come to a long term deal. I'd rather just get one in the draft, i'm tired of us signing receivers and tight ends to high priced deals to only get a fraction of their production from the year prior.

    We can draft either a blocking tight end and have him stay to block while having Miller splitting out wide or get a receiving tight end and have Miller blocking and catching.

  • I think we signed our version of Delanie Walker from the 49ers a couple of years ago in the form of Michael Robinson. Robinson has been a very versatile and productive player who became an excellent fit in at full back position in addition to his outstanding special teams work.

    IMHO The Seahawks have already placed their veteran bets at FB and TE thru this coming season. There is limited existing room in the 2013 budget. Bottom fishing or an attractive salary/cap rookie looks more likely to me.

    Not with Davis on the roster....he wants to get paid mother sucker

    $$ talks

    Most versatile TE in league dare I say? Off the top of my head?

    Was gonna say Hernandez but he dosnt play FB.

    Could almost say he's as valuable as Davis is in that offense. In the form kimon him up all over

    The franchise is pretty much "built". And while the draft is the preferred route, they have been aggressive in free agency (Sidney Rice, Zach Miller, Matt Flynn being the most obvious and expensive examples).

    Anything is possible.

    wouldn't exactly call it a no brainer, he said before the 2012 season he would like to return, but if he gets offered more money, and/or a starting job...I think he will be gone, its a business first and foremost...plus we said the same thing about Carlson...now he's on the vikings.

    Anybody else notice the NFC North has alot of Ex hawks?


    Who said Carlson was going to be back? that boy was gone and JS & PC couldn't of cared less.


    Ummm I dunno were you got that from, I remember seeing how excited Pete was for him and Zack to really get sometime on the field together, and if I remember right Pete said many times he wanted john to resign with the hawks, even after not knowing how he would respond with his injury, also remember us getting outbid by the vikings, John just wanted more money then we could offer...a quick google search shows this quote from a presser

    "we're hoping we can get that done and get him [John] back with us."
