AP Source: TN agrees on deals with Levitre, Walker
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says the Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with Buffalo guard Andy Levitre and San Francisco tight end Delanie Walker to open free agency.
The person spoke to The Associated Press Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the deals both are pending the players passing physicals.
Levitre will help plug a big hole on the Titans' offensive line after left guard Steve Hutchinson announced his retirement earlier Tuesday. Walker will help replace Jared Cook, who the Titans declined to tag as a franchise player because he wants to be paid more like a receiver.
The Tennessean, which first reported the deals for Levitre and Walker, says Levitre's deal is for six years, $46.8 million.
The Titans waived safety Jordan Babineaux and guard Mitch Petrus.
