Bills send Walker to Chicago

The contract situation between the Buffalo Bills and Darwin Walker is no longer an issue. ESPN’s John Clayton reports that the team sent Walker to Chicago for a fifth-round draft pick.

If Walker had not reached a new contract with Buffalo by August 5, he would have returned to Philadelphia for a sixth-round pick, so the return is lightly better.

So overall from the Takeo Spikes and Kelly Holcomb trade, Buffalo has a fifth-round and seventh-round draft pick.

Walker wanted a new contract and Marv Levy wasn’t going to give him one without playing a down in Buffalo.

Perhaps the emerging play of John McCargo in camp made Walker tradable.

I was hoping that the Eagles would get a chance to make this trade, but at least they did not have to take a cap hit, and loose a 6th round pick.The Bears are a good fit for Darwin, and I bet he does well there.
