No he didn't.
Kevin walter became the starter after Eric moulds flamed out.
His first two years as a starter he had around 800 yards receiving. That's a good healthy number that he should strive for on a consistent basis.
I seriously doubt kubiak decided to scale that back and make him more of a blocker than a pass catcher.
More than likely he hasn't been able to achieve that level of success that he initially had and that's why he was asked to take a pay cut. That's also why his blocking skills are overly emphasized.... because well, we have to have some kind of justification as to why he is still getting so many snaps.
