We should re-sign Walker. Does too many things in the offense and is good at it. People just look at one aspect and think he should be let go. There are areas he must improve, but he's an important guy in our offense and keeps the opposing defense honest.
One aspect? Dude, catching passes is like half his job. We're not talking about a guy being too slow, or too small.......this is a huge part of his job as a TE, if it wasn't, they'd put out an offensive lineman out there who could even do a better job of blocking.
If he can't catch, he shouldn't be out there, its as simple as that. You also talk about him like he's a rookie, he's not, a long-term vet doesn't all of a sudden change his spots. If he can't catch the ball now, he won't catch it tomorrow, simple as that.
I for one think the 49ers can do A LOT better when it comes to a quality #2 TE that can both block and be a valuable and consistent weapon as a receiver.
