Without naming names, Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker said the team's locker room chemistry was affected by several "cancers" that need to be removed from the roster.
"When we started losing more games, we got to see it more and more, it was just like it was falling apart," Walker told The Midday 180 in Nashville. "And the players that were the cancer were dragging other players into that box with them, and the box was getting bigger and bigger. At first, it was just a small box. The box just got bigger and bigger.
"So I feel like these coaches are going to come in, they're going to watch film and they're going to see. They're going to see what type of players that want to be here and don't want to be here, and he's going to get rid of them. I feel that's what type of coach [coach Ken Whisenhunt is]."
Following a 7-9 season, Mike Munchak was fired.
The Titans started 3-1, losing eight of the final 10 games.
"Some of the guys that was the cancer, they really didn't care," Walker said. "They'd be happy to get up on out from the organization.
"You would hear them talk about it, 'I can't wait to get up on out of here.' And I always told guys, 'If you can't play here, what do you think you are going to do with another team?'"
