According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Walker informed the team of his desire to retire on Thursday and offered to give back his $11 million signing bonus as well. But Davis, the Raiders' 79-year-old owner who has been attending training camp for the past several days, reportedly met with Walker and convinced the veteran receiver to stay.
Walker practiced Saturday morning and is expected to be on the field when the team returns for its evening practice at 7 p.m. PDT.
Head coach Lane Kiffin was in meetings and could not be reached for comment while Walker left the field without talking to reporters.
"The NFL Network reported it, ESPN reported it, that's all I know," Raiders spokesman John Herrera said.
Walker has not been playing up to expectations in training camp, though Kiffin refused to blame it on the attack in Las Vegas in which Walker was beaten, robbed and left unconscious on a city street.
"There's progress being made," Kiffin said on Thursday. "I wouldn't say as much as I'd like at this point so we're going to continue to push him."
