Former Texan Kevin Walter Signs with Rival Titans


The Houston Texans continue to see former players sign within the division.

On Monday, it was reported that former free agent wide receiver Kevin Walter had signed with the Tennessee Titans after spending a few weeks on the market. The Texans released Walter due to cap troubles and his age in Week 1 of free agency, but his diminishing performance in the past two seasons has also led to Houston seeking a new number two receiver in this years draft.

For the Titans though, their offense gains some competition and depth at the wide receiver position, while also adding a capable slot receiver despite Walter’s 518-yard, two touchdown season in 2012. He isn’t the big name the Titans may be seeking – they failed on both the Danny Amendola and Wes Welker front – but Walter is still an experienced set of hands.

The figures of the deal are yet to be leaked, but we do know it’s a one-year deal. If things go well for Walter in Tennessee it’s likely he finishes his career there, but if not, retirement will probably be on the horizon this time next year.
