Delanie Walker: ‘I’m the best tight end in the league’
There are those who peaked in high school, and there are those who bloomed later in life.
Consider Delanie Walker to be the latter.
Coming off another Pro Bowl campaign, which happened to be his third-best season in his career, the Central Missouri product is approaching 2018 with the highest confidence level possible.
On a team that included Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker and rookie Corey Davis, it was Walker who led the Titans in receptions in 2017 with 74. He led them in receiving yards as well (807) and came one touchdown grab shy of tying with Matthews for the team lead.
Schobert was a Pro Bowl selection (originally an alternate), but racked up his tackles in part as a result of the Browns ‘ defense spending a lot of time on the field. We aren’t taking away from his accomplishment he was an important and effective part of Cleveland’s defense but it’s no coincidence Kirksey joined him in the league’s top five for most tackles recorded in 2017.
Cleveland isn’t making a corresponding roster move to accommodate for Kendricks, instead bringing him in as a starter-quality player to compete for a job. Should Kendricks arrive, buy in and make the necessary efforts he’s always made, Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is expected to find plenty of uses for Kendricks within Williams’ myriad of packages.
Boone said he’s already started reaching out to people to express his worry over ESPN moving the a Yankees- Blue Jays game in Toronto on Sunday, July 8 from a 1:07 p.m. first pitch to an 8:05 p.m. start. He didn’t say to whom he’s reached out, though he said they weren’t connected to MLB.
