The Tennessee Titans had a poor season this year in the NFL and it culminated in head coach Mike Munchak getting fired by head office.

But tight end Delanie Walker has come out and said blame shouldn't be laid at Munchak's door, but at players he has labelled 'cancers' in the Titans locker room. 

Walker and teammate Bernard Pollard have spoken to the media in the past about players being cancers who didn't care about the team, fans or coaches and simply didn't want to be there. 

Now in an interview with 104.5 The Zone, Walker has spoken more about how the cancers increased to "six or seven" and led to the teams downfall. 

"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, via "And the players that were the cancer were dragging other players into that box with them, and the box was getting bigger and bigger."

The tight end wouldn't go as far as to name names, but he did say that the coaches and other players knew exactly who the troublesome players were but they just couldn't do anything to get rid of them during the season. 

"I met with [Munchak], we actually talked after a walk-through and he was like, 'I don't want you to say any names, but we know,'" Walker said. "Munchak knew. But there wasn't nothing he could do at that time.

Walker hopes that new head coach Ken Whisenhunt and his coaching staff will notice the bad eggs immediately and deal with them swiftly. If not it could be another long season for everyone connected to the Titans.
