Good luck, Kevin Walter.
I agree with this. Walter's not a terrible receiver. He's got great hands, and I rarely ever see him drop a pass.
But like you said, he's a #4/#3 (at best), and he's getting paid like a #2, and playing as our #2. That's where the problem is. No, our WRs are not better without him, but cutting him gives us more cap space to pursue other options at WR that may upgrade our #2 position.
