Ravens interested in Walter, Manumaleuna?

Baltimore Ravens News & Blogs by Tony Lombardi of Ravens24x7.com
Word is that the Ravens are interested in free agent TE Brandon Manumaleuna. According to multiple sources Manumaleuna's relationship with Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is key to the team’s pursuit of the 30-year-old blocking tight end. Manumaleuna is a nine year veteran, drafted in the fourth round by the Rams in 2001 where he played for five seasons. Manumaleuna has played in 142 of a possible 144 regular season games during which he’s accumulated 110 catches for 965 yards and 12 TD’s.

Another player who is reportedly drawing the interest of Ozzie Newsome is Houston Texans wide receiver Kevin Walter. Unfortunately for Ozzie he isn’t alone. The Patriots, Browns, Jaguars and Bucs have all rumored to be in the mix. Walter was a 7th round pick by the Giants in 2003. He was eventually cut by New York and picked up by the Bengals where he served as a backup for three seasons. He moved on to Houston and has become a solid No. 2 receiver opposite Andre Johnson. Over the past three seasons Walter has averaged 59 catches for 770 yards and 5 scores.

Take Manumaleuna off the Ravens list (Ravens PA Announcer Bruce Cunningham is probably happy to hear this).

The tight end has been re-united with Bears' Offensive Coordinator Mike Martz.

My concern about getting a Kevin Walter is how effective will he be w/o Andre Johnson. Is he going to be another Alvin Harper (post-Michael Irvin).
