Here was an interesting interview
I know he has disappeared as of late (into the black hole of Oakland), but he was a talent back in the day. I have felt bad for the guy ever since the 2005 opener when he was playing for the Packers (incidentally the last Lions game I saw at Ford Field). He was coming off a 1300+yard/12td season and looking for a contract extension that he did not receive. Then, in the opening game vs the Lions he blows out his knee and goes on IR. He goes to Denver in 2007 and has another great season (1000+yards/8tds). After that he has some injury concerns and has to deal with the crap that is Oakland and pretty much became a non-factor in the football world.
Fast forward to today. Oakland let him go with a nice severance package of about $2 million a catch (not far off of reality). He is a 32 year old, 8 year vet, former 1st round pick, former probowler, who is looking for a team to give him a chance. He is willing to take a vet minimum incentive laden contract just to prove that it was Oakland and not him.
What do you guys think? Should we give him a shot? I think we try to bring him in and let him fight for the #2 or #3 spot. At this point, what do we have to lose. I know that if we do this and the Pacman project, that we are going to start looking like the Island of Castoff Toys, but we need to get better and these guys need to prove they are players--A win win.
Do we go after Javon Walker?
Grab him! Maybe he will have more catches than drops. Unlike some other #2 WRS we have... (70 votes)

Do Not Want! We are already set at WR with the addition of Burleson and we will need to develop Freddy Barnes after the draft ;) (31 votes)
