With so many of is colleagues doing the very thing he’s fighting against, Walker says the players need to hold themselves responsible in an interview with Mike Freeman of CBS Sports. As players, we have to take responsibilities for our actions,” Delanie Walker said. “We can’t blame others. I will say, though, a lot of players feel like the media highlights the guys that screw up more than the guys who do right. A guy can one day donate money to charity, and that’s not covered. But a guy gets a DUI, and that’s covered.

What I tell players is that you are looked at everywhere you go,” Delanie Walker said. “Someone is always trying to get something on you. If you go into a bar and get into a fight, it will become public. That’s on you, not the media With all the blemishes the NFL is receiving with the arrests of its’ players, it’s good to see the players that are trying to make a difference for the good not only on the field, but off the field as well.
