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?
