Eagles Rumors Update: Javon Walker Up for Bids
With the Packers' permission, the disgruntled Green Bay wideout has visited the Saints. So clearly he's been shopped for a possible swap involving picks, perhaps a player or two. That much we know. Most of the rest is reasonable guesswork and rampant speculation. Supposedly the Eagles think the Packer's asking price of a first-round is too steep. (Especially for a guy recovering from a torn ACL.) Although profootballtalk.com reported last night "We heard a trip to Philly is in the works," not a word's been heard. Asked yesterday on WIP about a possible Philly visit, Birds GM Tom Heckert declined comment. Denver, where Walker is supposed to be visiting today, is alleged to be cooking up a three-way deal involving an unidentified third team. Miami, Kansas City and New England are also intrigued. Despite all the buzz, a Milwaukee Journal columnist doubts any deal will get done.
