Eagles Interest In Walker Falling Fast

Ideally, the Eagles would be able to upgrade their receiving corps a little more before training camp begins, but don't figure on Javon Walker being part of the upgrade.

The Packers are moving closer to dealing wide receiver Javon Walker, but it doesn't appear likely that it will be to the Eagles. Green Bay has looked to get a first-round pick in this year's draft as compensation for Walker and the Eagles are uninterested in that deal.

The Eagles did offer Hollis Thomas and a low-round pick - believed to be their sixth round pick - for Walker, but the Packers quickly rejected the deal. One other potential scenario has the Eagles offering a second-round pick this year and a conditional pick down the road for Walker, but Green Bay believes that they can do better.

Walker was in New Orleans to talk with the Saints on Thursday and will meet with representatives from the Denver Broncos on Friday as those two teams now appear to be the front-runners to swing a deal with Green Bay to acquire Walker. Both teams would want a renegotiated deal with Walker and a chance to examine him after he injured his ACL and missed most of last season.

As for finding a wide receiver in the draft, the Eagles aren't likely to take Chad Jackson (Florida State) in the first round. They are more likely to select wide receiver Maurice Stovall if he is still there when the Eagles draft in round two on Saturday.
