Found August 15, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Delanie Walker says he heard about the car crash that left two people dead. What he didn't know until he stepped off a plane in San Francisco was that it involved family members he'd hugged only hours earlier at a team party after the Super Bowl. He didn't want to believe it until his mother told him his uncle's police badge had been found in the fiery wreckage. Walker says that's when he knew it was his aunt and uncle who had perished. It's been a whirlwind since then for the tight end, who signed a four-year, $17.5 million contract with Tennessee, taking him away from his California home, and has been working with Mothers Against Drunk Driving to speak out in memory of Alice and Bryan Young Sr. --- AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org
