Walker reports to camp
Despite his earlier suggestions he might not play at all in 2005 without a new contract, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Javon Walker on Wednesday night reported to training camp and is ready to participate in all workouts, ESPN.com has learned.
It was not immediately clear how the conflict between Walker and the Packers was resolved, although sources confirmed there have been conversations the past few days between Green Bay vice president Andrew Brandt and agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Walker's contract, which has two seasons remaining at base salaries of $515,000 for 2005 and $650,000 in 2006, has not been altered.
It is believed that, while the Packers remain firm in their negotiating stance, they will not upgrade the contract, there will at least be some dialogue in the near future. It is also believed the team forgave at least a portion of the fines Walker accrued when he failed to attend the Packers' mandatory minicamp.
