Raiders Sign Javon Walker; Al Davis Proves He Really Is Senile

New, comments

Enough about Brett Favre.  Let's talk about player actually playing in the NFL, especially those with histories in Denver.

Javon Walker is about to get paid....BIG TIME!!  The Raiders have reportedly agreed to a deal with Walker, a deal to the tune of 6 years/$55 million with $16 million guaranteed. The first three years of the deal amount to $27 million.  That is Randy Moss-type money, with more money locked in to boot.  Two words....What the hell is the walking corpse thinking???  Don't trust me, read for yourself --

Wide receiver Javon Walker, released by the Denver Broncos on Friday, agreed to a deal with the division-rival Oakland Raiders on Tuesday, a source told ESPN.com's Michael Smith.

The terms of the deal call for Walker to receive a six-year, $55 million contract that includes more than $16 million in guarantees and pays him roughly $27 million over the first three years of the deal.

Soon after being released, at least a third of the league reached out to the six-year veteran.

Injuries limited Walker to eight games last season and he finished with 26 catches for 287 yards and no touchdowns.

He started the season with two 100-yard games before missing two months following a third knee operation.

Beginning his career with the Packers, Walker played two seasons in Denver. He had 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight TDs the first season. But the offseason was punctuated by tragedy. Involved in a drive-by shooting soon after the season ended, teammate Darrent Williams died in Walker's arms.

I thought the Tommy Kelly and Gibril Wilson deals were bad, but this one take the whole freakin's cake....Not to mention they signed former 49'er speed bump Kwame Harris.

At least we can count on the raiders being irrelevant for the next 4 or 5 years....
