I could be wrong on that first part though.
That is correct.

But Walker is not getting waived (at least to start the season). Why would Homer even acquire him and speak of him as being a big part of our defense if he was just going to waive him? If we waive Bartulis, I'd almost guarantee someone claims him, and then we lose him for nothing (as far as I know, there is still confusion as to whether or not Bartulis is waiver eligible).
