Walker Extended to 2012
Delanie Walker, the 49ers sixth-round draft pick in 2006, received a three-year extension worth $6 million this offseason. The deal included a $1.8 million signing bonus. He is now signed through the 2012 season.
The 49ers’ decision to reward Walker is interesting because he has just 23 career receptions in 23 NFL games. Last season, he caught 21 passes for 174 yards and one touchdown. But it might be an indication the 49ers expect Walker to flourish with Mike Martz as offensive coordinator.
