Gee, taken in conjunction with the other overpriced signings in the past few days, I think this is the final evidence that Al Davis has indeed lost his mind. Six years and $55 million, with $16 million in guaranteed money???!!! That's money spent for top flight 25 year old defensive tackles or similarly young premier defensive ends!!
Walker's best year was in '04, truly his only great year, when he was catching passes from Brett Favre to the tune of 89 catches for 1382 yards and 12 TD's. He's worth SOMETHING after some injury-filled seasons since then, but not that much.
It's just not fair. It's like a friggin 5 year old is running the team. I played Sam LB in Highschool. I'm currently 25 , run a 4.71 40,i'm 5'7 and weigh 221 pounds........i'm thinking i'm worth atleast 3 or 4 mill a year for oakland. It's just dumb , this historic and reputable organization is gonna get destroyed even moreso then it is by this doddering old idiot.
now Walker is a good WR.....but come on....55 million over 6 years? He probably laughed as he signed that contract
not to mention it also ruins bargaining with other mid-tier to high-tier WRs. They're gonna want Walker money now. Al Davis is horrid.
He's a pretty good player. The raiders desperately need a playmaker at WR to go with Russell so I can understand them picking him up but I think they're crazy to give him such a contract. I think the Raider may take Mcfadden at #4 to have their offense set for the next 5 or so years.
I would have never considered the guy, he doesn't like to play second fiddle to anyone. He has a big EGO and must be the #1 WR in order to be happy. He's a head case and the perfect fit in the Raider's organization.
