49ers' Delanie Walker wants to remain in San Francisco

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Walker is a free agent at the end of the year and hasn't seen much playing time in 2012, but he's happy to be a 49er and wants to continue to be one.

San Francisco 49ers tight end Delanie Walker hasn't been targeted much in 2012, but the seven-year veteran -- who is free agent at the end of the year -- "wants to be a 49er", according to Mindi Bach of CSNBayArea.com.

When asked about how he approaches a season with impending free agency, Walker told Bach:

"A lot of people talk about me staying here and get the deal done but I'm not really worried about that as we play because we got a long season. I'm a 49er now, and I want to be a 49er but we never know what's going to happen so I just try to stay focused on getting my job done job week by week and always showing up to play."

Walker has been targeted 13 times this season and caught five passes for 51 yards. In Sunday's 13-6 win over the Seattle Seahwaks, he found his way into the end zone for the first time since catching a game-winning pass against the Detroit Lions last October. The 28-year-old saw his playing time increase in Week 7, as 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman has implemented more multiple tight end sets into the teams offense.

Drafted in the sixth round 2006, Walker has spent his career behind or alongside the team's first round pick from that year, tight end Vernon Davis.

Kickoff for the 49ers clash with their NFC rival Arizona Cardinals is scheduled for 5:20 p.m. PT and the game will be televised on ESPN.
