Adam Schefter with Corey Griswold on Darwin Walker Exclusive WGR 550 Windows Media Audio

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - NFL Network's Adam Schefter is reporting that Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Darwin Walker can become property of the Philadelphia Eagles if he does not report to Bills training camp by August 5.If Walker does go back to Philadelphia the Bills would get the Eagles' sixth round pick in 2008. The Bills acquired Walker from Philadelphia back in March for Takeo Spikes and Kelly Holcomb. Walker is holding out in hopes of getting a new contract. His current deal has two years left on it.

This is unbelievable. I'm not sure if the Eagles would want Walker back. Maybe they can move him again to another team, willing to pay his salary demands. Either way the Bills seem to be getting screwed in this deal. As long as the Birds got TKO, I don't care where Walker ends up.

Wow, didn't see this one coming. Isn't there too much bad blood for him to return at this point? If I'm another team that wants Walker, I'd just sit there and wait, assuming the Eagles are going to cut him. So, as good as it looks to give up only a 6 and 7 for Spikes (so glad he's finally here) and the likely-to-be-released Holcomb, add $1,142,857 in dead money on this year's cap into the mix (that's the hit, not Walker's salary, which is a few biscuits below 1.9 million). Still worth trading for Spikes? Don't be silly, of course. Nevertheless, do I think the Eagles would rather Walker work out a deal with the Bills? Yep.
