Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - Sports -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Ti­tans in­formed the NFL about the death threats to Pro Bowl tight end De­lanie Walker and his fam­ily be­cause of the an­them protests. The league said Fri­day its se­cu­rity de­part­ment is in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

Walker dis­closed the threats Thurs­day night in a post shared on so­cial me­dia. Walker told fans up­set by the protests that they didn’t have to go to the games if they felt dis­re­spected.

“We had a dis­cus­sion about it and have turned it over to the NFL, and will let them deal with it,” said coach Mike Mu­larkey. “We’re very com­fort­able and con­fi­dent that it will all be set­tled. We did not make a big is­sue of it, but we are def­i­nitely aware of it. It’s all out of our hands.”
