When you subscribe to NFL Rewind, you get all the games from last year, too.
With the all-22 view and one end zone view on top of the normal broadcast view.
And I've seen Walter get open a pretty fair number of time but the QB didn't look his way (he was not the first read). Sometimes the first read was not open but the QBs forced the ball there while Walter was open. To be fair, sometimes the QBs didn't have enough time to go to the second read.
Yes, Walter did run his good shares of deep routes that pull the safety over such that the QB would go to the underneath receiver.
And yes, Walter was used to block a lot.
Even on passing plays, many times they called on him to block the back side DE or OLB on play action fake.
After he threw the cut block he would get up and started his route.
By then, the QB already found a target.
I remember for sure though, that one year (not last year), I had seen Walter got a catch out of that situation.
Walter is not going anywhere until another guy shows he can do all those things.
