But I believe in transitions; you have got to prepare for the next wave instead of just throwing them out to the wolves to sink or swim.

(They did for other positions, from TE to nickel back.)
But I still wanted for them to prepare the WRs a little better.
Didn't Posey actually overtake Walter in WR2 snaps near the end of the season? All the more reason why Posey's injury was so unlucky for the team.

Walter will be missed in the run game, but it was clear that what little he offered in the pass game was dwindling. I'm not sure if I want him back unless it's at the vet min and even then I might favor the young guys.

Good locker room guy, did everything asked, squeezed all his talent out on the field, but he was somewhat limited athletically. Good guy, and I'll miss seeing him out there, but the timing was right for this.

My thoughts are none of the 3 (Martin/Posey or Jean) brought what Kubiak expected so he continued with Walter. Posey did come around and did see more time which supports my position. Also the" win the game" is a good projection.

Which is confusing to me.

Why now? This could have been done three months ago, giving Kevin more time to find a team before FA.

Why not restructure? Surely Walter doesn't believe he'll make equivalent money elsewhere.

I know that I don't know, but the way the Texans conduct business just seems awkward to me.

I like Kevin Walter. Teams need guys like that. I have never had a problem with Kevin Walter. What I have had a problem with is the coaching staff putting him in a position that he was never really suited for. What I have a problem with is how he has been a #3/#4 level receiver, paid like a #2/#3 level receiver, and yet the team is still worse without him, as of this moment. Maybe they have a plan to replace him, but I sure haven't grown to trust their decisions at WR.

Good luck, Kevin Walter.

Maybe we'll be able to draft Swope. I mean, it just wouldn't be right not having our token white boy at the WR position.

And yes, I omitted Maehl on purpose

I didn't even know Maehl was white. I guess he didn't see the field often enough for me to notice lol.

Only thing I can guess is they took the time to evaulate options via draft and wanted to see all the possibilities in free agency in terms of who was released and get a feel for what type of contracts some are seeking. Guess they have specific targets in mind that made them feel more comfortable with the release. I always found it a service to the player though that if you are going to release a guy then get it over with so they can get on the radar of other teams.

Thankful for the work he put in but it was time for us to move on. But 76 is right in that our work at developing receivers leaves something to be desired and makes it a bit worrisome at the same time.

Made many big catches and did all the little things (like blocking) to help this team win.

It was frustrating watching the wide receiving corp struggle to get open and create separation the past two seasons, but he was never paid to be the guy that stretches the field. He always did his job and did it well.

Thank you, Kevin Walter, for the past six years.

I'm thinking he retires unless we bring him back at a lower cost. I think I've heard him say before that he really doesn't see himself moving on. Still, people's plans change. Boldin said he would retire if not with the Ravens.
