Cowboys Taking a Look at Getting Javon Walker?

Walker
While the Cowboys are always in the mix when it comes to making major moves, one bullet that might be in their gun may be to go after unhappy Broncos wide out Javon Walker.  Profootballtalk.com is reporting that the team is working out a deal that would bring Walker to Dallas to put a little more firepower in the teams offense.  One issue to watch though is Walker’s knee, which has been an issue ever since he tore his ACL during the opener of the 2005 season.  He missed half of the 2007 season with knee issues, and over the past three years total has played in just 25 games.

Dallas wants to make a splash and it appears it will be on the offensive side of the ball.  They want to give Tony Romo more weapons, and with Terrell Owens, Walker and Jason Witten, the team could have an explosive passing game.  One key factor will be keeping Walker and Owens both happy.  Walker talked his way out of Green Bay, and now is trying to do the same in Denver, so that is always an issue to watch out for.

For his career, when healthy, Walker is a solid receiver.  He had a career year in Green Bay the season before he got hurt, with 89 catches for 1382 yards and 12 scores.  In his only healthy season in Denver, he had 69 catches for 1084 yards and 8 TD’s.  He would be a great second wide out opposite of Owens.  Now the question is can the Cowboys pull the deal off, and can they keep Walker happy?

    Another thing to watch out for might be the fact that the Cowboys have only around 9 mil in cap space, still haven’t resigned all of their free agents and did we forget about the draft coming up?

    I don’t know if J. Walker would be the guy The Cowboys should go after. I would LOVE to see Bernard Barian in a Cowboys uniform!!

    I think that Dallas has made big mistakes in free agency. First of all they should not have re-signed Flozel Adams. Sure he is a good line man but is he worth the money plus the penalties. I think that could have been money well spent. I am not like these other Boys fans who thought we had a shot at Moss, but we had a real shot a J. Walker and didn’t step up. I think it is very apperent that we need a WR. When T.O. went out last year that was very apparent. Instead we let Walker go when he could have came cheap to a contender like the boys. Instead he is off to the Raiders. I think we have spent money in stupid place including Adams and Zach Thomas.
