The Denver Broncos have officially made a trade with the Green Bay Packers, giving up their second round pick (37th overall) in exchange for disgruntled wide receiver Javon Walker.
Walker, who publicly said he would not play in Green Bay after the team's refusal to re-negotiate his contract last year, is coming off a severe knee injury suffered during the Packers 2005 season opener.
In 2004 Walker showed flashes of brilliance, catching 89 passes for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns - a sharp contrast to current Denver receiver Ashley Lelie who totaled 42 catches for 770-yards and one touchdown.
Lelie's days became numbered when the five-year veteran skipped the team's off-season conditioning program, electing to work out on his own in Phoenix, Az.
The move not only secured a spot on Mike Shanahan's bad side, it also cost the receiver a $100,000 roster bonus.
On Friday Walker arrived in Denver and visited with Mike Shanahan and team officials, giving fuel to the rumors that a deal was in the works.
