Florio got this one right. (Insert snide comment here.)
Less than an hour after the boss man said Kevin Walter should end up back in Houston after the receiver struck out with the Ravens, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports Walter has agreed to a multi-year contract to stay with Houston.
Terms aren’t available, but he was expected to get a contract similar to the one Nate Burleson did with the Lions.
In other words, the Texans got a nice value. Detroit didn’t.
Walter will team with Andre Johnson, Jacoby Jones, and tight end Owen Daniels to form one of the better pass-catching crews in the league once again.
The next logical names to get attention on the free agent market at wide receiver include Terrell Owens and Derrick Mason.
UPDATE: Aaron Wilson of NFP reports Walter will get $21 million over five years.
