Default Texans Re-sign Kevin Walter

According to John McClain via Sportsradio 610, the Texans have re-signed WR Kevin Walter. Details to come...Good way to start off the free agency period. I don't have links yet, but will post them as soon as they're available.

Fears should be calmed. I like the idea of retaining our WR squad like this.

This solidifies the group, bringing back all those guys Schaub is familiar with.

Yeah I know. The way some people here are acting, you would've thought the Texans were not going to sign another NFL player ever again.

he Texans have reached an agreement on a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract with free agent receiver Kevin Walter.

Walter, who became an unrestricted free agent today, was pursued by the Baltimore Ravens but elected to return to the Texans and will continue to start opposite of Andre Johnson.

Walter, 28, had 53 catches for 611 yards and two touchdowns last season when a hamstring caused him to get off to a slow start.

LOL. Wow, I would never have figured that his new deal would be a "multi-million dollar" deal.

I was thinking "multi-thousand dollar."

I mean, why even put "multi-million dollar deal?" Duh. Just say "signed a deal, and terms were not disclosed at press time."

Apparently the Ravens were going to offer him $5 mil for his first year if he were to sign, but the trade with Arizona went through and they got Boldin instead. I'd be willing to bet that Walter will be making around $2 mil a year as a Texan.

Florio got this one right. (Insert snide comment here.)

Less than an hour after the boss man said Kevin Walter should end up back in Houston after the receiver struck out with the Ravens, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports Walter has agreed to a multi-year contract to stay with Houston.

Terms aren't available, but he was expected to get a contract similar to the one Nate Burleson did with the Lions.

In other words, the Texans got a nice value. Detroit didn't.


Walter will team with Andre Johnson, Jacoby Jones, and tight end Owen Daniels to form one of the better pass-catching crews in the league once again.

The next logical names to get attention on the free agent market at wide receiver include Terrell Owens and Derrick Mason.

Ah, I don't think they are that cheap! It's probably in the neighborhood of 4-6 million a year average over the next 4 years, with a bunch front-loaded into a signing bonus so it doesn't effect 2011 and beyond capspace! That would be the smart thing to do!

I might rate Walter a tad better then Nate, but that might just be me.

On a side note, where are all the people who were bitching about McNair not an hour ago?
