Thumbs up Walter Is Officially Ours!!

Texans | Team acquires Walter; Bengals fail to match offer sheet
Sat, 18 Mar 2006 13:29:29 -0800

Mark Curnutte, of the Cincinnati Enquirer, reports the Cincinnati Bengals have declined to match to offer sheet made by the Houston Texans to restricted free agent WR Kevin Walter. He signed an offer sheet on a four-year, $6.4 million contract with the Texans. The Texans will owe the Bengals a seventh-round draft pick as compensation.

Is the next press conference a Walter, Putzier, and Flanagan press conference?

Oh no, that seventh pick is practically a 6th round pick!

^^ i dont think so, but if we get burleson, that would make our receivers:

Andre Johnson
Nate Burleson
Kevin Walter
Jerome Mathis
Armstrong

That looks pretty damn nice to me

We can only hope to get Burelson. My above comment is a joke toward those who feel that our 3rd (practically second) round pick is to valuable to give up for a 1000 yd NFL receiver. I think the Walter signing is a good start, the Burelson signing would make this offseason much more bearable.

Well, if the Texans get Burleson, then I think that Walter and Armstrong switch off at the #3 spot:

1. AJ
2. Burleson
3. Walter/Armstrong
4. Mathis (who I think will be used more in situational passing plays)

No Burleson, I think Walter, Armstrong, and Mathis all switch out at the #2 spot.

If your going to list situational recievers then you have to throw Bush in there also, if we get him.

that will give us.

1. AJ
2. Burleson (if we get him)
3. Walter/Armstrong
4. Mathis/Bush (if we get him) on about the 10 recieving plays he should get a game

Then you throw in Putzier and DD and hopefully a improved Oline and I really like how this offense is comming together and the best thing is they will be very YOUNG.

I still think they are leaning towards a 3rd rounder or so as a receiver pick. It isn't deep but they just really haven't been reaching for studs so far. Givens was close but they had their price. Burleson would be nice.

According to the Texans Web sit this guy has worked his way from being cut to in the line-up by working hard and becoming a good special teams player as well. They also mention that he was a good blocker as a WR in the C running game. This indeed looks like a good pickup. We will have one of the taller sets of WR's. Now, who do you pick in the draft - Davis of Bush? After all you do have a RB, but still no TE. I still think Bush is it, but you can make a case for Davis given the kind of QB Carr is.....

How many TE's have been the first pick in the draft? Ain't happening unless we trade down, which is very unlikely. All in all, I would say drafting Davis will happen when

The story I read in the Enquirer said if Cincy gets this other WR they won't match the offer sheet for Walter. Is that what you read because no where did I see where they definitely won't match it? Not doubting you, just asking where you read that in his article because article I saw was different.

Ok pick -up but we still need a #2 WR. Hopefully we can get Nate.

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis had the following comments about the team's decision not to match the Houston Texans offer sheet to WR Kevin Walter: "Kevin has been a fine player for us, and he deserves the opportunity he'll get in Houston to be a starting receiver," Lewis said. "But as we build our roster for the upcoming season, we believe it's in the best interest of our team to allocate these funds to another position."
