I think it is more revealing that the team that drafted and developed him has passed up multiple opportunities to bring him back into the fold. When a team who knows a guy well and believes in his potential, they will often look to pick him back up and 'fix' whatever they perceive to have gone wrong with him. Walt passing on him tells me that he wasn't all that sold on his potential in the first place.
