    I think the NFLN reported that Walker got a $55 million contract over 6 years with $16 million in guaranteed money.

    not at all. gaffney always had great hands (probably the best on the team when he was around) and solid route-running. he's not too fast, but he was almost always clutch (sans that goal-line gaffe).

    He is not worth that what so ever. The Raiders keep giving out these contracts and screwing up the entire salary chart.

    The Walker deal is nuts. The Raiders have a lot of money invested in three players

    3 out of 4, that's not too bad.
    I still don't see how Walters was better than Gaffney, but looks like Kubiack thought he knew something about NFL personnel that Belichick didn't ?

    Walker got more guaranteed money then Randy Moss?

    Note to all NFL players, fire your agents and hire Javon Walker's.

    Exactly. The Raiders are idiots. As I saw on another site...what do you expect when this is the man making your decisions

    Oakland Raiders have signed former Broncos wide receiver Javon Walker to a six year $55 million deal. I think Al Davis has gone mad...

    Paying Walker more then Randy Moss is just about one of the stupidest moves in recent NFL history.

    Gaffney is a solid reserve...I thought he did an excellent job when Andre went down. If you weren't first or last in the Carr progression you never saw the ball.

    Walker is better than Joey Porter (Jags signed this turd)...I think the Raiders upgraded. Walker got 16 mil in guaranteed money....doesn't seem that high for a legit WR1
