It sickens me that they didn't give a little more value to him with his versatility. So many extra plays we can run with him in the lineup out of the same formations. It has really hurt our team. And Baalke really dropped the ball on this decision to not keep him.
walker had played 7 years in sf and wanted to hit the open market, he wasnt going to sign before free agency, thats bad business on his end. once he hit the market, sure we could have re-signed him, but it became a bidding war. we already pay 1 te a lot of money and its tough to double up on salaries like that. having already done it at ILB with bowman and willis, you cant sustain things long term doubling up on salaries like that.
