I dont think it was right for Walker to hold out, but it was just as wrong for Favre to get in the middle of his business and call him out. I seriously doubt Favre gave him any of his money after Walker felt compelled to come back and tore up his ACL.

I dont think Walker is any kind of cancer, just doesnt like the organization and especially doesnt like his QB and wants out. I seriously doubt we will or would get him, but if we did he would be worth it i think.
hes most likely out of the steelers pricerange but they are doing the smart thing by giving him a look. if he was healthy id rather have him as a starter rather than drafting someone who may take as long to develop as javon did. he may only get a new contract in the range of what keyshawn, bruce, el, givens, and moulds did. im thinking an average of those salaries might actually be a bargain on a 4-5 year deal for him.

will he give a bargain to the steelers is the question the front office has. and would the steelers make a trade cause i think teams like the pats or eagles may outbid them if he were released? in this case i wouldnt mind a trade (assuming hes ready to go of course)
