If he hadnt gotten injured , I dont think it's as big a need as it is now.
As it is , they really need a solid outside guy. If it was up to me , I'd take Rogers but Hunter's in the same mold.
My question wasn't referring to Hunter in the 1st, but to Tavon Austin in the 2nd. While I agree Walter needs to be replaced/upgraded, I think he's back next year because there's just no one currently on the roster to replace him. Hunter might be able to do so, but we'd have to wait til the end of TC to find out and then cut Walter after we know if Hunter is capable. I've got high hopes for Hunter, I think he might be a star in this league very soon.
