And Randy Moss' agent was arrested for crack possession
RUMORS FLY OF WALKER TO PHILLY
Talk radio in Philadelphia is abuzz with reports that disgruntled Packers receiver Javon Walker is on his way to town to meet with Eagles officials regarding a possible trade that would make him the new No. 1 wideout, a spot that used to be filled by a disgruntled receiver who was released on Tuesday.
Although we prefer mongering rumors to shooting them down, we can report with a high degree of confidence that this one ain't happening.
How do we know? First, a source with knowledge of the situation tells us that it's not happening. Second, Walker is still under contract with the Packers. Before he could talk to another team, the Packers would have to give him permission to attempt to work out a trade. Typically when such permission is given, the dude's agent crows about it in order to shake as many interested parties as possible out of the bushes (or, as they say in some parts, the "booshes").
So the rumors are wrong. (Gosh, it genuinely pains us to say that.)
