Javon Walker, signed by the Raiders in 2008 to be their No. 1 receiver, has asked for his release.
The veteran wideout is looking for a chance to resurrect his NFL career with a team interested in a former Pro Bowl player who believes he is in his prime. Nowadays, he is nothing more than an afterthought on the Raiders.
"That would be nice," Walker said earlier this week, "because, the thing about it is, it's not that I can't play. I can play. From everyone who sees me at practice, I still got it going on."
