Walker would become just the ninth tight end in league history with 90 receptions if he can add five more on Sunday in Indianapolis.

Delanie Walker is having a Pro-Bowl season regardless of if he makes it to Hawaii or not. The Titans star needs just five more receptions in the season finale Sunday to become the ninth tight end in league history to surpass 90 reception mark in a single season.

Last week against the Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker recorded nine receptions for 59 yards to bring his season totals to 85 catches and 994 receiving yards.

Walker already has set the single-season franchise records for most catches and receiving yards by a tight end. Five more receptions will give him 90 for the season, a rare milestone among NFL players at his position.

Eight tight ends in history have produced 16 total 90-catch seasons. Tony Gonzalez (five), Jason Witten (four) and Todd Christensen (two) all have multiple 90-reception campaigns. Dallas Clark, Jimmy Graham, Ben Coates, Martellus Bennett and Rob Gronkowski are the others to reach the mark. Tight ends in NFL history with 90 receptions in a season:
