Is Cornerback Frank Walker Getting Desperate?

Posted on: June 15, 2010 11:32 am
 

Oft-penalized Ravens nickelback Frank Walker, a serviceable but brash veteran who remains unsigned as a UFA, recently had a tryout with the Houston Texans. The Ravens, though thin at corner (and potentially deathly-thin, given that Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb are both coming off major late-season knee injuries) clearly have no interest in retaining Walker. Recently, Baltimore welcomed cornerbacks Walt Harris and Ken Lucas in for a tryout. (Side note: Lucas struggled mightily in all phases as Seattle’s No. 2 corner last year, but it’s still somewhat surprising that the 31-year-old, who was once amongst the highest-paid corners in the league, remains unsigned).

Trying out with the Texans suggests Walker is getting desperate. Houston has fantastic depth at the cornerback position. First-round rookie Kareem Jackson is expected to start opposite last year’s fourth-round pick Glover Quin. Another second-year pro, Bryce McCain, figures to have the inside track on slot duties. That leaves Jacques Reeves (experienced veteran), Antwaun Molden (fluid athlete who’s often injured) and Fred Bennett (gifted but disliked by coaches) competing for No. 4 duties. Even if Walker were offered a contract by the Texans, it’s highly unlikely he’d make the final roster.
