    Sharper's line on Walker: He wants out

    http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_7963288
    By Bill Williamson
    The Denver Post

    Darren Sharper talks to Javon Walker almost daily.

    He said he knows exactly what the Broncos wide receiver is feeling.

    "He wants to get out of there," Sharper said Sunday during the Colts-Chargers AFC divisional playoff game, where the Minnesota Vikings safety was doing television work. "I know all about it, and he wants out. He's not happy. He wants the ball. He doesn't feel like he's part of the offense."

    On Dec. 31, Walker said he didn't fit in anymore. Last week, on the Lewis and Floorwax radio show, Walker backtracked some. But Sharper said Walker's true feelings are to leave.

    Still, Sharper said it's his advice for Walker to stay in Denver.

    "He has a young quarterback who is good in (Jay) Cutler and has another great receiver in Brandon Marshall," Sharper said.

    Walker has $5.4 million in option bonus money coming his way, and it appears the only way he will remain in Denver is by taking a major pay cut.

    Re: Sharper's line on Walker: He wants out

    He has not worked out in both places that he has been in.
    We have an offense that is run first, pass later.
    He will not be happy with that either.
    Don't need a nother winer.

    If we could somehow get him for a 2nd day pick I'd be all for it.
    He would be the #1 guy right off the bat.
    He would be thrust into a position in which he would be the leader/mentor.
    If for some reason he did come into our organization, he would know ahead of time that this is a run first, pass 2nd offense so him not getting the ball every play wouldn't come as a surprise.
    He would be forced to make plays off the action given to him.
    If he starts bitching at the end of his 2nd season as a Viking...let him go.
    By that time our young WR corps should be ready to step up to the plate and get things done in his absense.

    Go for it, unless something better is available through FA/Trade for less combined cap and opportunity cost. I think Walker is as good as any for a short term fix for the WR's. Long-term, i think the talent on the team already, plus possibly another high pick in the next few years should be more than adequate.

    Two very nice points.

    I for one am waffling on this guy. One day I want him the next I don't.
    Most of my indecision is that there just aren't alot of good options out there so you have to really start to consider some of these guys with baggage.

    I kindof like the last to lines.

    i feel the same, and for the same reasons..the wr crop isnt great, but its at least good, and theres no denying the guy does have the talent..unfortunately, he will want out after a year or two so..really i dont know which way to go with this one now..the guy might just want out because he thinks he can get back to green bay now that theyre in the nfc title game and hes limping around his family room watching
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Re: Sharper's line on Walker: He wants out

    I think hes worth whatever it would cost. I want a loud mouthed WR that WANTS the ball every down. He could easily fit into TJs go to guy. I think hes one of the better WRs available.

    The pay cut is the issue!

    My take:
    It now makes sense to me.
    Walker must have been asked to take a cut.
    He has been injured in GB and Den.
    In GB, he felt he wasn't getting paid enough.
    Then Den was willing to pay him.
    Now Den says, hey for us to pay you like this, you need to be on the field and we want to recoup our dollars spent on you so far.
    We need some of that money back so we would like to restructure your deal in the form of a paycut of sorts.
    Walker takes that as they don't need him and he isn't part of the offense.
    JMHO!


    Sharper is right, he should stick it out in Den.
    They have two guys that could be the #1 WR.
    They have a QB that is on the rise and one of the better/consistent young QBs.
    Suck it up Walker!
    Prove yourself for two seasons in a row.
