    Here's a little more on the situation rather than him just being released.

    I'm glad to see he can go home happily to his family and that they care so much to him. It's nice to see he was being looked up to by the younger guys. Too bad he's gone.

    Shanahan really emphasizes proper route running to make the offense work. He says that athletic WR can get away with being a little sloppy with it, but even if you are slow, if you can run a tight route, you can get separation. For the purposes of the offense, hands and excellent route running beat just plain speed.

    An example he gave was Randy Moss--athletic WR but crap route runner. He can get away with it because he is a freak.

    In general, he was saying that as a guy stays in the league a while, and his athletic skills diminish, if he is still a sloppy route runner, he won't be able to play. (IIRC, the route running is what he really liked about Walters).

    Article is nice in how it suggests how more experienced receivers can help younger ones.
