Default Kevin Walter Agrees to Salary Reduction

Kinda surprising, buy happy he decided to stay.

Quote:
Kevin Walter agreed to cut his 2012 base salary from $3.5 million to $2 million on March 16.
The move cleared $1.5 million in salary cap space. The Texans may have threatened to release Walter before the "restructuring." Walter didn't get a signing bonus to compensate for his salary loss, however; he's just going to be paid less. Likewise, look for Walter's role to decrease on offense this year.

Glad he took the pay cut instead of being released... I like the way he plays but he wasn't worth the $.

I really like his outlook on the game when he talk on 945 the buzz during the season

Wow - good deal for the team's finances - and great that KW is sticking around. I guess he wasn't too optimistic about his FA value...

I still think they've given him a double locker space to push this one through though!

I'm thinking Jacoby will be cut in August, just to screw him over as badly as possible. He won't get much money then, and will have to work his way up someone else's depth chart.

His parents were actually expecting him to be released this year.

A guy that sits behind me said he talked them for awhile at a tailgate before our playoff game. Good news that he was willing to work with the FO and stay on for our 2013 run at the title.

Default Re: Kevin Walter Agrees to Salary Reduction

Excellent move by Texans to wait until now as most FA spots filled. With number of Texan injuries occuring every year, I assume KW is gambling his role might increase as season progresses.

I actually talk to a guy that knows a guy that knows another guy and he said that he saw jacoby jones not only playing receiver but also subbed in as water boy at the practices and that is why he hasnt been cut yet... but that same guy also said he saw him fumble a water bottle... if we woulda only knew that before the ravens game, things might have turned out differently.

So far I'm on board with everything our FO's done so far. Cap's a problem, they're dealing with it.

Players are taking paycuts to stay on with our team, and players released have found new homes in the NFL. That to me signals that we're a team with a bright future, and so much talent that we can't keep it all.

Bright future, and I'm drunk already!

So lossing all this talent is ok because they are over flowing with talented players? The answer is no, this will have a effect. Ok say the Texans put in back ups draft well and sign a FA vet or 2 for cheap. The chances of all these postions that were changed having a seemless transition has to be slim.
