Titans' Delanie Walker looking to catch 80 passes

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker has set high goals for this upcoming season.

After catching 60 passes last season in his first year with the Titans, he's hoping for 80 receptions this year.

"I've got to get better," Walker said. "I'm looking to catch 80 balls this year."

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt, a former NFL tight end, was the offensive coordinator last season for the San Diego Chargers when Antonio Gates caught 77 passes last season.

"He's a player's coach," Walker said. "He takes care of us. When he tells us something he means it. Plus he used to be a tight end, so what's better than that?"
