    This guy obviously has much deeper issues than just staying in playing shape, being a good teamate and football player. His head is not screwed on right and needs some help.

    He needs to be responsible about what he does. I know a lot of guys like him in college, guys who just don't get that drinking a lot and going out to clubs could hurt their professional careers. The situation from the shooting last year and his beating were the same: he was spraying people with champagne.

    I thought the whole issue with Walker buming around from GB to Denver to Oakland was that he wanted the big payday.

    Now he's got it and it seems he doesn't want it.

    Maybe there is a good reason GB and Denver didn't pay him?

    Denver gave him a five year $40 million contract. At first, I thought he wanted out of Denver to escape the thought of being in that New Year's Day tragedy. Well, I was wrong, he wanted more money.

    Its not about the money. Hell, he offered to return the money. Its about a guy who has suffered a few too many life trauma's and isn't quite ready for the mental stability needed to go out there and compete in the NFL
