I wanted him gone, but at least he's not costing as much...I'll bet he's gone next year if he doesn't produce.

My guess is that Walker will produce this year.

Thing is that Chaz Schilens made all of our veteran WRs look bad by catching everything within his arms reach; something Walker, Lelie, and Curry cannot claim. Higgins picked his game up a lot at the end of the season once he became the veteran WR of our receiving corps (after Walker, Lelie, and Curry went to IR). I think Walker is now at an expendable price so it won't be such a hit if they decide to cut him next year during the season.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. Hopefully, Walker will regain some of his old form (on the field). I'm eager to see how a healthy Arnan Shields will play, as I believe he has great potential as well.

The reason Walker may do better this year than last year is due to the Offense-scheme changing towards the end of the year. There seemed to be a lot of run-first and check-downs at the beginning of season with Kiffin. Schilens and Higgins did well with the offensive change and I think Walker will add to the group.
