    Pats Will Give Him A Physical, exchange contract info Per Michael Holley at WEEI.

    few notes on walker:
    packers reportedly want a 1st, no one of offering that
    he has already visited new orleans, denver(reportedly)
    he tore his acl last year did not play at all last year
    played with deion branch in junior college
    is in last year of contract

    If we could get him for a reasonable draft choice with a reasonable contract and combine it with re-signing Branch I would be the happiest man in the world (well, tied with a bunch of you).

    I would give up our #2 IF the contract was decent enough that we could still re-do Branch. Walker, Branch, Caldwell, Watson, Graham would be the weapons we need to have our Ferrari QB to really hit the gas on the open road.

    #75 should do it. He's coming off an ACL tear and wants a new contract. That seems like 3rd rd value...

    it seems as though a 3rd rounder wont do it. i could see maybe something like picks next year along with that or something of that standard. but with new orleans and denver in the mix(denver has a boat load of picks) it will be difficult to get him for just a 3rd.

    Does GB really think they can get a 1st here? I know their FO is inept, but c'mon.

    Depends on what the new contract would look like. The more the cap hit, the less the draft choice I'd give up.

    A pick this year and next is extra do-able as we're pretty much locked into some good comp picks with Givens, Vinatitraitor and Ashworth signing big deals and us not signing many to counter balance them.

    I wonder if that means straight up or if it means a #1 for Walker and a pick back from GB.

    i think it is safe to say that GB will not get a 1st rounder from the pats. i doubt the saints would give their 1st rounder(4th overall!), and i think that denver wont give their no.1( no.15)

    I think you're overrating Javon Walker. He had one good year, tore his ACL, quit on his team. and wants a big contract. I doubt anyone will trade a 2nd rd pick for him.

    Now that Favre is coming back, GB has NO chance to win this year. They should just settle for a 4th round this year and 3rd rounder next year and rebuild.

    This obviously is something we are serious about.
    ITs going to come down to A) what other teams will offer. BB will not make the highest offer until its do or die. B) where Walker wants to play. He cant be traded if he wont sign a contract.

    The interesting thing is his price will come down on Sunday.
    I think BB would be willing to pay a 2nd (but maybe next year) or a 3rd.

    It seems that GB isnt very interested in a 2007 pick since there is such a flurry before the draft.

    Tough spot for BB if he wants him. He can sit tight and see the price drop, or just pay what it takes to secure him.

    Very interesting, and IMO, very telling about how BB feels about his WR position (telling once we see what he actually does).

    Saints are at #2 overall & GB is at #5. They could conceivably swap the picks in exchange for Walker. The Saints have been rumored to want to trade down for weeks. The Packers would love to get Mario Williams.

    3rd this year and conditional pick next year.
