This move tells me that the Texans are close to a deal on another FA WR, or that they are confident in getting who they want in the 1st round of the draft, and that they are willing to trade up to go after who they've targeted. WR was already a huge team need but it now becomes much more so.

This might also tell us something about the achilles injury to Posey. It might not be as bad as we think.
I hope Posey is in game shape by the time the play-offs roll around; that's the most important thing.

Christopher Clark Spencer (born March 28, 1982) is an American football center for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League. He was selected with the 26th overall pick in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft out of the University of Mississippi by the Seattle Seahawks.

This is an interesting and a bit of a surprising signing ? Wonder if it's a vet minimum and if it might also mean Wade Smith is on borrowed time ?

He was reporting that Walter and Spencer were signed by the titans.

He just quoted Schefter, so that's why he is there.

They lost Jared Cook.
Quote:
Going into free agency this offseason, tight end Jared Cook and the St. Louis Rams were an obvious match. Cook wanted to get out of Tennessee, and the Rams wanted a physically gifted tight end who could be a strong offensive threat down the field.
IF they use him in the slot, or as a psuedo TE, he'll be an excellent safety blanket for their young QB. But I'm sure, he will not be challenging Kenny Britt or Kendall Wright for playing time.

I also found this interesting.
Quote:
Look at some of the best teams in the NFL these days: The Ravens, 49ers, Patriots, Falcons and Texans. These teams have a lot of similarities, but one of the most prevalent is that they all have a great tight end. Baltimore has Dennis Pitta, San Francisco has Vernon Davis, New England has Rob Gronkowski, Atlanta has Tony Gonzalez and Houston has Owen Daniels.
That was written March 2013 this year. I know it's just BleacherReport, but it's nice to know that someone still believes the Texans are among the best teams in the NFL.

They signed Delanie Walker. Delanie's an excellent blocker and has very good hands. Walter will be nothing more than a #3 or just plain depth.

well that's just not true but anyway....

Walker's four-year contract is worth $17.5 million with $8.6 million guaranteed. In 2012, Walker dropped 11 passes across 19 games, including the playoffs. He only had 26 catches. Walker's "catch rate" of 54.2 percent was third worst in the NFL among tight ends with at least 40 targets, behind only Kellen Davis and Tony Scheffler

personally ive been delighted with how the colts and titans have blown their wads on middling players this offseason

Looks like Walter signed for the veteran minimum of $910K.

I've always liked Kevin Walter, so I wish him well. He didn't live up to his second contract with us, and we had to move forward without him, but, he always seemed like a cool dude.

(When we play the titans, though, I hope Jonathan Joseph kicks his ass...)

Anyone really think whatever vet minimum WR the Texans sign will be better in this offense than Walter? I said it before, the problem with Walter was where he was playing and for how much, not that he was a member of the team. As a vet minimum guy playing an appropriate role, there's value there.

If he's doing well enough that they have to put JJo on him, then that's a helluva loss for the Texans.
