Walker Could Be Winging West

While the Randy Moss free agency watch continues, more than a third of the league has its eye on Javon Walker.

At least 10 teams have been in contact with the agent for the wide receiver who was released Friday by the Denver Broncos, including all four NFC East clubs, according to a source. The 49ers, Bills, Bucs, Panthers, Raiders and Vikings also have reached out to agent Kennard McGuire regarding Walker. No visits had been scheduled as of early Saturday. The Cowboys and Eagles have a couple connections working in their favor in pursuit of Walker. Dallas receivers coach Ray Sherman coached Walker in Green Bay. Walker is friends with Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb and the two have been training together in Arizona for several weeks.

Among the others teams showing interest, Walker is said to be intrigued by the prospect of playing in Mike Martz and Jon Gruden directed offenses in San Francisco and Tampa, respectively.

On the subject of Walker, Matt Barrows of the Sac Bee had these notes Saturday.
- Just got off the phone with Kennard McGuire, who represents Javon Walker. I asked McGuire if he thought the 49ers would ratchet up their interest in his client. McGuire said he and Walker haven’t decided which teams they will flirt with. “Javon’s just getting back from vacation,” he said. “We’re going to sit down pretty soon and talk.” There’s no doubting that Walker is a rare talent at receiver. He led the Broncos in receiving in 2006 with 69 receptions, 1,084 yards and eight receiving TDs. Teams, however, will be careful to check out the knee injury that forced Walker to miss most of the 2005 season. “It wasn’t an issue last year and it’s not an issue now,” McGuire said when I asked about Walker’s knee. Really? I was under the impression that Walker missed half the season after requiring surgery on his right knee.
