Titans waived WR Kevin Walter.
Walter was waived with a failed physical. Walter's faulty back prevented him from playing a snap for the Titans in 2013. Walter, who is 32, will be hard pressed to find opportunities this offseason. Tue, Mar 11, 2014 05:18:00 PM

Date:

The Titans will not activate WR Kevin Walter (back) from the reserve/PUP list by Tuesday's deadline, ending his season.

According to coach Mike Munchak, the Titans will "monitor Walter moving forward to determine if he's worth taking a chance on in 2014." The longtime Texan didn't play a snap for the Titans after signing in April. Going on 33 with a serious back injury to his name, Walter is going to have trouble drumming up interest in free agency.

Titans coach Mike Munchak "indicated" Tuesday that WR Kevin Walter (back, PUP) is unlikely to play this season.

Walter has encountered some "issues" in his recovery from back surgery. Walter went under the knife just before camp, and suffered a setback in October. Signed to a one-year deal in April, Walter will likely head back to the open market without ever playing a game for the Titans.

Titans WR Kevin Walter (back, PUP) is not expected back before "near the very end of the season."

Walter recently experienced two weeks' worth of back spasms, and is now recovering from nerve damage in his leg. The Titans do not have a receiver need, and no reason to rush back Walter. It's possible he won't play at all in '13.

Kevin Walter (back, PUP) suffered a "minor" setback in his recovery last week.

Walter is eligible to come off PUP as early as Monday, but the Titans say he's not particularly close to a return. The 32-year-old underwent disc surgery in late July. It's possible he doesn't play at all this season.

Titans placed WR Kevin Walter (back surgery) on the reserve/PUP list.

Walter underwent surgery just before camp. He'll be eligible to return in Week 7, but it's unclear where he'll fit into the Titans' receiver corps. The 32-year-old wideout is well off the fantasy radar.

Titans WR Kevin Walter (back surgery) is expected to start the season on reserve/PUP.

Walter underwent surgery in late July to repair a disk is his back. His timetable for recovery was initially expected to last just 4-5 weeks, but considering Walter's age it's not a surprise it's taking longer. The 32-year-old will be sidelined the first six weeks of the season, then will be reevaluated.

Titans WR Kevin Walter's back surgery will last 4-5 weeks.

Because he'll miss virtually all of training camp, the injury severely threatens Walter's roster chances. The procedure repaired a disk in his back.

Titans placed WR Kevin Walter (back surgery) on the active/PUP list.

Walter missed June OTAs due to lower back soreness and subsequent surgery to repair a disc. He's expected to miss about a month of action. Walter wasn't ticketed for a big role in the Titans' crowded receiving corps anyway.

The Nashville Tennessean believes the Titans might opt to keep six receivers.

That would be good news for Kevin Walter, as he'd be the odd-man-out in a five-man group if the Titans keep Nate Washington. Michael Preston and Marc Mariani are also competing for roster spots. Walter missed the majority of OTAs with a back injury, but will supposedly be ready for training camp.

Kevin Walter (back) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Walter missed all of minicamp with lower back soreness, but it was never a major concern. With Nate Washington considered a lock for the 53-man roster, Walter will compete with Damian Williams for the Titans' No. 5 receiver job.
Sat, Jun 22, 2013 07:49:00 PM

Kevin Walter (back) will be sidelined until training camp.

Walter has barely practiced since signing in April, and is starting to hurt his roster chances. At this point, Walter might need Tennessee to renege on its promise of keeping Nate Washington to have a real shot at making the 53-man roster.

Titans signed WR Kevin Walter, formerly of the Texans.

Walter, who turns 32 before the season, caught 41 balls for 518 yards (12.6 YPR) and two touchdowns last year across 16 games (14 starts). A reliable possession receiver and plus blocker, Walter lacks big-play ability and has never been much of a touchdown scorer. He'll add depth in Nashville with Nate Washington on his way out. Walter should not be a candidate to start.

Free agent WR Kevin Walter is visiting the Titans on Tuesday.

As is Brandon Stokley. It's the first we've heard of Walter since he was cut loose by the Texans on the first day of free agency. The Titans have a crowded receiver corps, but would be short on veteran experience if Nate Washington is traded or released, as expected. Walter is durable and sure-handed, but offers little as a play-maker. He'd be a downgrade from Washington.
Tue, Mar 26, 2013 04:27:00 PM

Texans released WR Kevin Walter.

It's a move that's been long in the making. Walter is tough in traffic and a dependable blocker, but one of the league's least effective No. 2 receivers. He's held the Texans' offense back for years. The move clears $2.5 million in cap space, and allows the Texans to experiment with more explosive options opposite Andre Johnson. Keshawn Martin and Lestar Jean are both possibilities, but the Texans will surely be on the lookout for receiving help in the draft and free agency. DeVier Posey is recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon.
