Javon Walker open to a trade

Rarely used Raiders wide receiver Javon Walker would be okay with a trade sending him to another team before Tuesday’s deadline.

Steve Corkran of the Oakland Tribune reports that Walker said that he would be fine with a deal if the team decides that it is in their best interests to moving him. They very well might decide that such a deal suits them, but it’s hard to figure that another team feels that acquiring Walker and the $4.6 million he’s guaranteed through the end of next season is in their best interests.

Walker has been on the field for a grand total of four snaps this season, and doesn’t figure to see much more time now that Chaz Schilens appears ready to return to the lineup. If there is an interested bidder, they’ll be happy to know that Walker says he is 100 percent recovered from injuries to his right ankle and left knee.

    Walker wants traded? Really? Who wouldn’t want to stay in that sh-thole of an organization? LOL

  3. slipkid says: Oct 16, 2009 9:24 AM

    alpie, why is this news? isnt everyone in oakland, especially seymour, open to a trade?

    …Steve Corkran of the Oakland Tribune reports that Walker said that he would be fine with a deal if the team decides that it is in their best interests to moving him….
    lol…Gee, what a guy. That probably makes Walker just one of 53 roster and practice squad players on the Raiders who would be fine with going to another team.

  5. Quagmire says: Oct 16, 2009 9:25 AM

    Think anyone on the Raiders would be opposed to being traded…anywhere?

  6. firesnake says: Oct 16, 2009 9:27 AM

    Useless post of the day.
    Name one Raider who is not “open to a trade”.
    Thank you.

    Might be able to get a box of donuts for him.
    Seriously, with his contract, who would want this loser

  8. raybin says: Oct 16, 2009 9:33 AM

    This Walker situation (aside from his ridiculous contract) is a perfect illustration of why Al Davis is insane.
    Instead of putting Walker out there as a starter to give his struggling QB a real veteran target to throw to, Davis is all pissy because Walker had knee surgery in the off-season without telling him first. So Javon gets benched and Russell gets to throw to the clearly beyond his depth at present Darrius Heyward-Bey.
    I would say it’s unbelievable, but it is Al Davis. The man is wasting millions on Walker because he’s piqued.

    Javon Walker- another career sabotaged by the egomaniacal Lord Favre.

  10. PurpleIsForGays says: Oct 16, 2009 9:35 AM

    Imagine what you could have done had you just stayed in GB…..
    Guy has been through some shit, but fell off the face of the earth after he left GB.

  11. wallyworld says: Oct 16, 2009 9:37 AM

    Maybe that is why he will be active to showcase his “talents.”

  12. KaiserSoze says: Oct 16, 2009 9:37 AM

    A Raider wanting out of Oakland.
    Imagine that.

  13. hopewell says: Oct 16, 2009 9:39 AM

    If the Raiders could take the cap hit for trading him they would have already released him.

  14. hk94 says: Oct 16, 2009 9:41 AM

    “Javon Walker- another career sabotaged by the egomaniacal Lord Favre.”
    I’m not much of a fan of Favre, but Walker f’ed his career up without any help from Favre.

  15. DonTerrelli says: Oct 16, 2009 9:44 AM

    I’m sure even Al Davis is open to a trade.

  16. IowaRaider says: Oct 16, 2009 9:46 AM

    Besides every player wanting out of Oakland, the fans truly want to see a handful traded away anyway.
    While we’re at it can we trade away staff?

    Jamarcus Russell. If he goes anywhere else he would have to work at becoming better.

  18. TransplantedFan says: Oct 16, 2009 9:50 AM

    Man, you remember when Javon Walker used to be good? Seems like forever ago.

  19. SATAN567 says: Oct 16, 2009 9:54 AM

    Walker requested a trade? ………Again? Really? This guy is a complete jackass.

  20. jupe says: Oct 16, 2009 10:00 AM

    just put the guy on the field. last week the Raiders got 2 yds on 1 complettion to WR’s.

  21. Worst Poster Ever says: Oct 16, 2009 10:04 AM

    I bet NFL teams are just lining up to pay Javon Walker 4.6 million per season…

  22. rodstiffington says: Oct 16, 2009 10:20 AM

    Javon,
    Have you ever been affiliated with the New York Jets organization?
    Sincerely,
    ManKok

  23. dlodown1 says: Oct 16, 2009 10:35 AM

    Walker probably only has a year or two left. If I was him I would waive my salary in order to leave the Raiders. He should start over with a new team and play his career out to a peaceful ending. The only peaceful ending in Oakland is an earthquake.

  24. Go Pats says: Oct 16, 2009 10:49 AM

    Hey Al, Bill Bellicheck again, I’ll take Javon off your hands for you, and I will even give you a bag of balls this time.

  25. jimmySee says: Oct 16, 2009 11:00 AM

    Another prima dona attitude head case whose career has been swept down the drain.

  26. HATERADE says: Oct 16, 2009 11:03 AM

    YEAH, trade him to the salvation army – they need workers and they’ll pay him accordingly. since he sucks – he’ll get below minimum wage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. cleanface says: Oct 16, 2009 11:18 AM

    I hear Tyson Chicken is offering a fermented chicken drink and some chicken snacks.

  28. realitypolice says: Oct 16, 2009 11:23 AM

    In other breaking news, the sky is blue and the grass is green.

  29. Fan_Of_ Four says: Oct 16, 2009 11:36 AM

    Walker had one good year in Green Bay and hasn’t done crap ever since. The question should be why would anyone want him ? Trade him to the UFL.

  30. scrapdawg12 says: Oct 16, 2009 11:50 AM

    Walkers knee’s are SHOT. Who would want him? He’s better off being cut and signing a one year deal with the Ravens. They need a receiver badly

  31. Fike Mlorio says: Oct 16, 2009 12:19 PM

    hed be ok with being traded out of the worst organization in football as a backup, are you sure?

  32. FavreHaikuMan says: Oct 16, 2009 12:20 PM

    Javon is open?
    There’s a news story for you
    It has been awhile
    – FavreHaiku.com

  33. Patches O'Houlahan says: Oct 16, 2009 1:01 PM

    He is still in the league?

  34. cactusranger71 says: Oct 16, 2009 1:07 PM

    “Walker had one good year in Green Bay and hasn’t done crap ever since. ”
    He did have 1000 yds and 8 TD in Denver in 06. Just so you know. But he’s crap now.

  35. peskys_pole says: Oct 16, 2009 1:10 PM

    To Javon – after the Raiders, there is the UFL. Call the Tuskers, they are 2-0

  36. Mr.ClaytonBigsby says: Oct 16, 2009 1:18 PM

    Shanahan: HAAHHAHAHA How did going to Oakland work out for you MEvon?

  37. FumbleNuts says: Oct 16, 2009 1:33 PM

    This guy SHOULD be in the UFL NOT the NFL!

  38. Monstersport says: Oct 16, 2009 1:59 PM

    Seymour will be with the Pats next season, too.

  39. BoudreauxnThibideaux says: Oct 16, 2009 2:22 PM

    (sarcasm) Can the Raiders trade players to the CFL, Arena League or UFL???

  40. packers4life says: Oct 16, 2009 2:24 PM

    So glad the Packers got rid of this nuisance. Had we not, we wouldn’t have Greg Jennings.
    Thanks again Javon!

  41. el_dude says: Oct 16, 2009 2:42 PM

    I can’t wait for this guy to play on the Vegas Team in the UFL. THAT is going to be awesome.

  42. ncm42 says: Oct 16, 2009 2:44 PM

    Comment Submission Error, what a ^&%!ing shock…
    hayward, you have got to be kidding. Javon should thank Favre for every dollar Javon has made in the NFL. If he hadn’t played with Favre in GB, he would have been just another WR. His one semi-good season in Denver was a direct result of Shanahan’s offense trying to force the ball to Javon, and of Rod Smith beginning to suffer some injuries and declining production the same season. And in exchange for that, Walker ruined what was, to that point, good chemistry in the Denver locker room.

  43. Rhode Kill says: Oct 16, 2009 5:01 PM

    That’s great that you are “open to a trade” Javon. Now if you could just find someone in a front office from the other 31 teams in the NFL that feels the same way, you might just have something. In the meantime, why don’t you go back to spraying champagne on people and getting your ass kicked on a sidewalk.

  44. Laffing Stock says: Oct 17, 2009 2:54 AM

    In other news, the other 51 players on the Raiders scrambled to get in line, also claiming that THEY are open to a trade…. ANYWHERE….

  45. eklypse69 says: Oct 20, 2009 1:39 PM

    I think I speak from the heart, and for the entire Raiders fan base when I say F\/
