The Titans on Friday made a pair of roster moves, releasing tight end Delanie Walker an kicker Ryan Succop.
The Titans have released longtime standout TE Delanie Walker.

Titansoline.com reports that Walker had “failed physical” attached to his designation.
It’s been a busy week for the Titans, who on Thursday said good-bye to veteran outside linebacker Cameron Wake and running back Dion Lewis.
“In my time here with Delanie, he has been an absolute pro on the field, in the locker room, and his production speaks for itself,” TItans GM Jon Robinson said.
“He was a leader, a captain, and a highly respected member of this team. His toughness, competitiveness, attitude and professionalism are what we expect from our players. I want to wish him all of the best moving forward and he will forever be a Titan great.”
From 2013-2018, Walker’s 356 receptions and 4,156 receiving yards with 26 touchdowns set a franchise high for a tight end in any consecutive five-year period.
In the end injuries did in the 35-year-old, leading to him getting cut. The move will save the Titans $6.4 million in 2020.
Succop had a tough 2019, as he battled injuries. He underwent knee surgery over the offseason, and never seemed to get right once he returned.
The veteran kicker was 1-of-6 on his tries this season before he was shut down. He did go 24-25 on extra points. He was eventually replaced by Greg Joseph at the end of the season.
