I think Walter has his place on this team and that he belongs, but I'm not kidding myself into thinking we can't upgrade him with some younger talent. I'm already liking Kmart more than I ever liked Walter, but we shall see how they pan out this season. There's plenty of room for all 5 WRs to be on this team.
Obviously, sooner or later, KW will retire.
How short or long the phasing-out period is will depend on how quickly the young guys progress.
