Walker wants Pack to let him explore trade options

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2361969

Lets say, for argument sake, that Green Bay lets Walker seek a trade, what are the feelings about the Redskins trying to get him? I mean I think that he is better, when healthy, than any of the current FA WR's out there now. I for one wouldn't mind seeing him line up across from Moss...


Thoughts...

Re: Walker wants Pack to let him explore trade options

No doubt Walker would want big money, and he's not interested in being anybody's WR2.

Did he ever renegotiate that salary before he went down last year? According to the Player's Assoc. website, he's only due to make 1.15 mil this year, and for the past 4 years he's been averaging about half a mil per year, so he's no doubt going to be looking to make up for lost time by getting *paid* with a new contract.

Re: Walker wants Pack to let him explore trade options

I would love it if it wasn't a trade. I don't really want to give anything up for him. He was injured last year but yeah if he plays at 100% moss/walker will be a force to matchup against.

Im curious what the Pack would be asking. I love Javon Walker, but his price would be severly reduced because of his injury.

Re: Walker wants Pack to let him explore trade options

yeah i'd like to have him, but he'd want a big contract, and i don't think he'd like being a #2. There was also a washington post article the other day that said we are trying to get brandon lloyd.

I'm pretty sure he didn't get anything worked out and went back to the team on good faith; ironic that he got injured in the first game.

I wouldn't say that. Does Steve Smith ring any bells? That's what his agent's going to be saying, and somebody's going to take a chance and pay him. If Peerless Price can get paid, Javon Walker is getting paid.

Walker won't be cheap, plus we've already got one #1 WR. Having two would only cause problems.

Re: Walker wants Pack to let him explore trade options

Who would the Skins trade for this guy? Ramsey and Jacobs packaged with a third round pick??? I definately dont see this guy coming to the skins. Any trade options we could explore???

Anybody who would take Ramsey and Jacobs for a guy like Javon Walker is smoking something. Plus the Pack don't need a QB, they drafted Aaron Rodgers to take over whenever Fav-ruh finally hangs it up.

That's cool man. At least you're not surfing some of these weird sites that kids your age tend to get caught up in. Things really heat up here around training camp time though!! Can't wait!!

Re: Walker wants Pack to let him explore trade options

Walker is a good WR but he doesn't fit here really. He'd cost us too much in cap space and in picks to get him and he'd potentially be a malcontent about not being the number 1. If this were last year and we didn't have Santana then I'd be all over him. We need a solid WR2 who knows his role and doesn't cost us an arm and a leg. We have other needs to spend money on too. This team is close to being good. No reason to introduce potentially sqweaky wheels.
