    The Moss deal (and Moss for taking it) I suspect will look better and better with each passing day.

    NO DOUBT!
    He certainly didn't do much in Denver last year.

    that deal would make javon walker be twice as good as Randy Moss....


    and i think javon is about half as good as randy moss....

    so they paid him 4times what they should have

    Uh, no, the deal makes him 3 years younger. It's six years for twice the $ of 3 years. The guaranteed money is proportionately less.... although it guarantees that a good deal of that 6 years' time will be served.

    I don't even bother calling my cousin the Raiders fan any more. He gave up two years ago. Said they are out of it until Al gets planted and the team gets sold.

    IF that contract has a team option in it somewhere, then it's actually very similar to Randy's. over the first three years Walker is scheduled to earn $27M, and he's guaranteed $16M. Moss is scheduled to earn $27M, and he's guaranteed $15M, right? So, they overpaid (substantially) for a WR who's coming off severe injuries and needs microfracture surgery, but you're calculations are a little off.

    Pathetic Raiders can't get anybody to play for them unless they completely overpay. So Walker holds his nose and takes the money in Oakland for however many years he lasts.

    How far they've fallen.

    All I can say is that I'm glad the Patriots got the Randy Moss deal done BEFORE news of this hit. Moss is a better receiver than Walker by far. The Raiders overpaid like punch-drunk sailors looking for a hot piece of action. But when they unwrapped their present, she looked like she had seen better days. :eek:

    I was just about to post his.

    Randy Moss not only took less to stay here and win, he took a massive pay cut compared to what he could have gotten.

    This deal definitely makes the Moss deal look that much better.

    I mean, let's face it, Walker isn't exactly the young up and coming stud receiver anymore.

    Instead, he is an overpaid, overrated, injury prone receiver whose best days are behind him.

    As for Moss, he can't be kicking himself too much, I'm sure the Raiders were the one team that was not EVER in the running for his services.

    What the hell are the Raiders doing? Walker is 29 years old and has suffered two major injuries and gets payed 55 million? That is why the Raiders are the Raiders.

    This makes me really realize how great it is to have Randy back.

    Crazy contract for Walker.

    I don't think anyone should feel "bad" for someone with a 3 year 27 million dollar contract, but it is blatantly obvious that Randy Moss took FAR less than his open market value to come back to the Patriots.

    Randy Moss has the exact same contract over the next 3 years as Javon Walker who is coming off a torn ACL and probably has only had 1 or 2 years where anyone would have considered him a top 10 NFL WR.

    This would be similar to Tom Brady taking the same contract as Jake Delhomme or Jeff Garcia.

    I am absolutely stunned by this. to think javon walker got randy moss money is insane. this even exceeded the offer that the eagles would have given moss. it is amazing how dumb some NFL teams are.

    The Raiders have now dished out the 3 worst contracts this offseason and signed Kwame "youtube" Harris for 3 for 15

    Think about how much money that franchise has tied up in a bust high pick OL, an unproven QB, and an injury prone wide out. What the h@ll are those guys doing? And their stadium is a dump.
