Walford joined second-year players Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe in the tight end room. He essentially replaced Nick O’Leary, who was waived Tuesday. At 28 years old, Walford is the old man in the tight end room. Walford has 70 catches for 786 and six touchdowns in four NFL seasons after entering the league as a third-round pick of the Oakland Raiders in 2015.
