While on the Raiders, Walker was dragged out of his Las Vegas hotel room, beaten down, and robbed of his expensive jewelry (jewelry, how masculine) and several hundred thousand in cash. It was one of the precious few instances in which an Afrolete received proper justice.

Seriously, this loser hasn't been relevant in 5 years. He was also permanently injured with the Packers and Raiders. I suppose anyone accept for Logan Payne will suffice, so long as he's of African pedigree.

I really hope Brett Favre didn't "lobby"Â￾ for this queer.

For the last week or so, Tru TV has been showing the taped replay of the trial resulting from Walker's beating and robbery.



Before he was beaten and robbed, Walker was at a club in the same hotel, obnoxiously spraying partygoers with champagne. He was wasted and his bling was on display, which made him an easy mark for the perps.

This is still a 2009 thread??



It shouldn't be. Anyone should feel free to start the 2010 thread for any teams that don't have them yet.

Logan Payne gets recognized. With Rice out and Payne obviously very good, there's a chance that once again Brad Childress will pretty much be forced to use a White player he wouldn't have otherwise. In fact, if Harvin is shelved in addition to Rice, there's a small chance that Payne could have a nice season as he's better than Berrian and way better than any of the scrubs on the roster. Then again the odds are better thatPayne won't even make the team given his debilitating skin condition.

Vikings sign veteran receiver Javon Walker

The Minnesota Vikings' desperation at wide receiver reached new depths Monday when the team signed Brett Favre's(notes) former Packers teammate Javon Walker(notes).

Walker worked out for the coaches Friday and, contrary to Walker's recent body of work, there seems to be enough left in his 31-year-old body to give them depth at a position that has none.





We'll see. Until Walker has a chance to prove himself, it would be a shame to see him move ahead of younger players such as Logan Payne(notes). Payne, 25, played in two games with Seattle in ‘08 but has potential. Walker is a household name with a Pro Bowl past, but he also has been beaten down by injuries and off-field trouble the past four seasons.





The last pass Favre threw to him was in the ‘05 season opener. Walker tore an ACL on the play and has had only one productive season since. Heading into that season, a rift developed between Favre and Walker because Favre publicly criticized Walker's decision to stage a contract holdout. The Favre-Walker relationship obviously has been mended because the Vikings never would bring in a receiver Favre didn't want.





Walker played in only three games with no receptions in Oakland last year. His last productive season was ‘06 with Denver. The signing is a reach, but the Vikings have little choice because Walker at least knows the offense and is familiar with Favre and coordinator Darrell Bevell.





No. 1 WR Sidney Rice(notes) (hip) remains on the PUP list and his status for the Sept. 9 opener at New Orleans is "up in the air."Â No. 2 WR Percy Harvin(notes) has missed all but four practices this summer while dealing with the death of his grandmother and ensuing migraines. He might return to practice this week after collapsing on the field last Thursday.

Walker's knee is shot...hopefully he just ends up being a high profile training camp body
