Here we go...
Hope and change are comin!
But when are they gonna cut Kevin Walter?
The thread title needs to remain uncorrected.
A fitting tribute...
LOL..I corrected it. Sorry, typing fast and for some reason I add the "S" Feels so right, I don't want to be wrong/.
It's a good move. I'm all for celebrating when the organization makes good decisions like they have done here. However, it should be remembered, that Kevin Walter was a heck of a player for the Texans. He was always on the field. Never created problems. Made many big catches and did all the little things (like blocking) to help this team win.
It was frustrating watching the wide receiving corp struggle to get open and create separation the past two seasons, but he was never paid to be the guy that stretches the field. He always did his job and did it well.
Thank you, Kevin Walter, for the past six years.
The move saves 2.5 million in cap space this year, because it creates 2 million in dead money. It also saves 4.5 million in cap space for 2014.
Thanks to a deep draft, I guess.
The first cap casualty.
I expect to see someone added -- mid/low tier free agent.
Finally some news.
Cant say I'm surprised...
Thank you for the memories!! We loved you and wish you well!!
Thanks for the memories Kevin. I'll always remember that Playoff clinching catch you made 2 seasons ago against the Bengals, and that monster game you had against the Jags couple years ago.
Or it could be setting up someone (hopefully Quin) for a contract renewal.
If it were a restructure (which we probably wouldn't know about this soon anyway), then you could almost guarantee something was coming down as a direct result. As it is, it's still a realistic possibility, and we can hope for some news.
Finally!!!!!! Hopefully with this cut, we get a lot more options in free agency.
^This. Much love to lunchpail type players
I am hopeful that will go towards a NT like Aubrayo Franklin. I was not a fan of Walter when Gary brought him onboard but came to enjoy his play. After last season time to move on. He can get another deal elsewhere or perhaps go on radio with other former Texans. Not thinking we will see anything on Quin be signed for some time by Texans. He has probably been offered a deal and Smith with allow him to persue offers.
The one thing I don't like is that Kubiak didn't quite prepare for the replacement.
I thought one of the other guys (Jean or Posey) should have seen a little more of the field in the blocking capacity of Walter.
Too caught up in winning games? May be.
But I believe in transitions; you have got to prepare for the next wave instead of just throwing them out to the wolves to sink or swim.
(They did for other positions, from TE to nickel back.)
But I still wanted for them to prepare the WRs a little better.
Even after cutting Walter we still have arguably the worst wr corp in the league. Lol.
So what I'm wondering is are we going to be seeing Walter again with a smaller salary before all is done. I'm not saying I want to see him back, I'm just wondering what the odds are that we do see him again.
