  Titans | Kevin Walter won't be activated    Tue Nov 19, 04:42 PM

The Tennessee Titans will not activate WR Kevin Walter (back) from the Physically Unable to Perform list, meaning he'll miss the rest of the year.

Footballguys view: Walter didn't play a single snap for the Titans this year. With this back problem he'll have a difficult time drawing any interest as a free agent in 2014.

  Titans | Kevin Walter placed on PUP list    Tue Aug 27, 05:13 PM

The Tennessee Titans placed WR Kevin Walter (back) on the Physically Unable To Perform List Tuesday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: This shelved Walter for the first six weeks of the regular season. Once that time has expired the team will have three weeks to decide whether or not to activate him or put him on Injured Reserve. While Walter is out we'll see more targets for guys like rookie Justin Hunter (Tennessee) and Damian Williams.

Tennessee Titans WR Kevin Walter (back) will begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

  Titans | Three start on PUP    Thu Jul 25, 12:45 AM

Updating a previous report, the Tennessee Titans placed FS Robert Johnson (foot), TE Delanie Walker (knee) and WR Kevin Walter (back) on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list Wednesday, July 24.

Footballguys view: Walker's minor knee scope could give second-year converted DE Taylor Thompson a chance to make an impression in camp. Walter is fighting just to make a roster in the twilight of his career.

  Titans | Kevin Walter's job at risk    Wed Jul 24, 05:26 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Kevin Walter (back) could be out another four to five weeks, which could put his job at risk during training camp and the preseason.

Footballguys view: Walter is certainly on the roster bubble. He's currently buried on the Titans depth chart behind Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright, Nate Washington, Justin Hunter, and Damian Williams.

  Titans | Kevin Walter expected to begin on PUP    Wed Jul 24, 11:46 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Kevin Walter (back) is expected to start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list heading into training camp.

Footballguys view: Walter needs to get healthy and stay healthy if he wants to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. He had a scope on his back after missing OTAs in June. Indications are Walter could still take part in preseason games later in August after a complete recovery.

  Titans | Might keep six wideouts    Tue Jul 2, 11:33 PM

The Tennessee Titans would like to carry five wide receivers, though six wouldn't be out of the question. If they keep five, WRs Kenny Britt, Justin Hunter, Nate Washington, Damian Williams and Kendall Wright are likely to be kept, although that would mean WRs Marc Mariani (leg), Michael Preston and Kevin Walter would be on the outside looking in.

Footballguys view: Walter is a veteran presence who could be valued with the inexperience of Hunter and Wright and inconsistency of Britt in mind. If Tennessee does keep six wide receivers, Jalen Parmele, currently the third running back, could be a casualty.

  Titans | Kevin Walter expected to be ready    Fri Jun 21, 09:42 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Kevin Walter (back) missed all of minicamp with back soreness, but head coach Mike Munchak isn't too concerned about the veteran's readiness for training camp. 'Just because we do so many things similar (to what Walter did with the Houston Texas), he understands so many things we're trying to accomplish as a team, a play-action team, a run the ball team. He'll be OK,' Munchak said. 'We already know what he can do, so he is probably one guy who can miss time. But he has already made an influence on our receivers by the way he handles things. He's a nice fit.'

Footballguys view: Walter is a seasoned veteran and should be good to go for training camp. We're not excited about his fantasy prospects as he's currently battling with rookie Justin Hunter to be the team's fourth WR on the depth chart.

  Titans | Agree to terms with two players    Mon Apr 1, 05:41 PM

The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with free-agent WR Kevin Walter (Texans) and OG Chris Spencer (Bears). Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Walter gives the team veteran depth at the WR position. They are trying to trade Nate Washington away and if they do that will open up more opportunity for Walter. He's a reliable WR2 and can be counted on in the red zone too.

  Titans | Kevin Walter to visit    Tue Mar 26, 04:33 PM

The Tennessee Titans are scheduled to visit with free agent WR Kevin Walter (Texans) Tuesday, Mar. 26.

Footballguys view: Walter hasn't garnered much interest on the open market after he was let go by the Texans. He could provide the team with veteran depth at the WR position, especially if they trade (or release) Nate Washington.

  Texans | Release Kevin Walter    Tue Mar 12, 02:00 PM

The Houston Texans released WR Kevin Walter Tuesday, Mar. 12.

Footballguys view: The move saves the Texans $2.5MM in cap space. Now they'll see if they can find a playmaker at the WR2 spot opposite Andre Johnson. Devier Posey and Lestar Jean will compete for that job. However, we think the Texans could add a WR with a premium pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

  Texans | Kevin Walter could be a candidate to be released    Thu Mar 7, 03:15 PM

It would make sense for the Houston Texans to release WR Kevin Walter, according to Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com. If the Texans were to release Walter, they would save $2.5 million in cap space.

Footballguys view: The Texans need to upgrade their WR2 spot opposite Andre Johnson. We expect them to address the position in the 2013 NFL Draft.

  Texans | Need a No. 2 WR    Thu Feb 7, 09:30 AM

The Houston Texans must look to add a No. 2 receiving option in the offseason who can help take pressure off of WR Andre Johnson. There was a 71-catch difference between the number of balls Johnson caught (112) and the second-best wide receiver caught (WR Kevin Walter, 41) this past season.

Footballguys view: We'll see if young WRs like Lestar Jean or Devier Posey can develop into dangerous weapons opposite Johnson. The Texans are likely to add a WR through the draft or free agency this offseason. This draft class is very strong at the WR position.

  Texans | DeVier Posey sees more PT    Mon Dec 17, 05:51 PM

Houston Texans WR DeVier Posey had three catches for 46 yards in Week 16 after entering the game with only one catch for 19 yards on the season. Posey saw more playing time over No. 2 receiver WR Kevin Walter, who had two grabs for 11 yards. 'We like what we see from Posey in practice, and we're playing him more,' head coach Gary Kubiak said.

Footballguys view: Posey seems to be moving up the depth chart after a rough start to his pro career. This negatively impacts the fantasy value of guys like Walter, Lestar Jean, and Keshawn Martin.

  Texans | Lestar Jean running with first team    Sun Jun 3, 12:02 AM

Houston Texans WR Lestar Jean has taken advantage of the absence of WR Andre Johnson (knee), running with the first team opposite WR Kevin Walter.

Footballguys view: Jean is a fast rising star and could be the next Victor Cruz. We love his size/speed combination and he's been impressing media members in attendance at Texans OTAs. Don't be surprised if he wins the WR3 job for the Texans and could eventually challenge Walter for his WR2 job.
