    Good for him. Maybe more players should do this.

    What was his relationship w/Sherman?
    That could determine if he'll come or not.

    GB needs a QB too this season, they could REALLY use the first pick :)

    It looks like they didn't have a super relationship last year.

    They may not need a QB, but I don't think they'd mind picking up Reggie Bush. Green has been very injury prone and unreliable recently, and the one year contract given to him is not a vote of confidence by any means.

    I could be very happy with that if we got the right player at the 5th.....Wonder if this is being talked about with the coaches?!

    Yeah but they strike me as being interested in Edgerrin or some other proven guy who can help in blitz pick-up (If Favre stays)

    I like Walker, but in my opinion we do not have a QB who can keep that type of personality in check. We have one of the quietest WR's in AJ and one of the quietest QB's in DC. Adding anything flammable to that sensitive mix will not be good. Its kind of like adding Richard Pryor to a Laurel and Hardy routine.

    AJ Played at the U and trains with some of his old school teammates, so Im sure he's heard/seen worse than anything "TO Walker" can dish out. On the same note, though, i see where DC could have trouble bringing in a Walker personality. Maybe if we gave him more $$ or made sure Sherman kept him in check it would work. Im thinking DCs aggreeableness would be exactl what attracts Walker to somewhere like here. He's played with the icon, and didn't like it. Thats on reason why he's leaving

    ON a different note, the people on the GB messageboard seem to think that his ACL injury coupled with his personality issues will result in his value being lowered dramatically (see D. Culpepper, Randy Moss, T. O., etc) They said that they imagine GB will be looking to land a 2nd round pick or something equivelent, therefore the offer of #1 for #5+J.W. would actually be a huge improvement for them. If they could offer us #5 + Walker + maybe a 3rd this year, I think its a great trade for us. I don't know why GB would go for the #1 spot, but if they did and took Bush, then Williams would probably fall to us at #5, and everyone would get what they wanted. Everyone over there on their board is pretty high on Williams, however, so I could potentially see them trading up in order to secure Williams, which might land us Bush at #5, and if not, maybe D'Brick

    All good stuff, but fragile is as fragile does. Spin it all you like, but I do not see AJ and DC handling someone who speaks their mind all that well. Just who do you think JW would go after in the event he does not meet his or the team's expectations? And once he does that how will it effect those two and the rest of the team.

    Since when do we need a banged-up WR with a big mouth ? If he was a TE,
    DE, OL. etc. it would make more sense. And its looking more and more like
    the #5 pick would too late to pick either of our primary targets for
    trading down - Ferguson and Williams very likely both now top 4 picks.

    He isnt worth trading the number 1 pick for.

    Unless they sweeten the deal with something else.

    Out of the box idea - probably not a good one - include Favre for a year for mentoring? I know he isn't a big fan of helping out his replacement though.

    I don't know much about Walker and his mouth, but I remember when the Spurs had the quiet duo of Duncan and Robinson - the addition of Mario Ellie and his attitude from Houston put them over the top to earn their first championship.


    I would hate to lose out on the chance to draft Mario Williams though. I guess in the end I'm against the idea.

    I don't know any of the specifics as far as his attitude goes, but listening to Mike and Mike this morning which I was halfway listening to, that Brett Favre I think it was posted on an internet message board the hotel Javon Walker was staying at at one time so the fans could go tell him what they thought about the way he was handling his contract situation. Also Favre should have kept his mouth shut when Walker was going through his contract situation, he had no business speaking out about another player's money.

    I stand corrected on my obviously bad idea.
