Look at that money...


Raiders bring in Javon Walker with megadeal

Raiders agreed to terms with Javon Walker on a six-year, $55 million contract, with $16 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Adam Schefter. He'll make $27 million in the first three years.

Al Davis has lost his mind. Even Walker's old coach Mike Shanahan said the receiver eventually needed microfracture surgery on his chronically sore knee. No one else was bidding for Walker, and many teams publicly denounced any interest. Walker gained 57 yards on seven catches in his last five games last year, and barely seemed able to run. Perhaps he'll recover, but Walker isn't worth Randy Moss money even when healthy. Like Moss' deal with Oakland, this one could end ugly. Mar. 4 - 10:34 pm et

Al Davis is insane 8-o . This is just rediculous, there was no market for Walker. This could hinder J. Russell's development at quarterback as well. Davis thinks Walker is exactly the kind of WR Russell needs to help him develop. Until he figures out he's wrong, Russell will have to wait.

my first thoughts had nothing to do with whether or not walker cared about winning... I was just astounded by the contract he received including the guaranteed money, even considering the money Al Davis has already shelled out with Kelly and Wilson...

this deal trumps the Kelly deal for most insane contract this offseason... I figured Walker would end up signing with a team for a deal for maybe half of that, if that, with some incentives that could bring it up... 16 years guaranteed and the first 3 years at equal money to what Moss got is just nuts...

needless to say, Larry Fitzgerald probably isn't the most displeased person in the world right now...
All of my analysis is based on PPR

He's making more money than Randy Moss. The only players in the league that would ever turn down that kind of money are top 10 QB's and MAYBE a couple of truly elite players at a few positions.
