    Can anyone tell me who we got for their pick? Was it two years ago when we traded him? If it was it was Greg Jennings or Daryn Colledge probably.

    Aww.....poor baby!
    I bet we will see him at Lambeau Field, with his nose pressed up against the glass............
    I wonder if Denver feels like it was shafted by us?

    Technically, we used the pick Denver gave us to trade down in the second round and gain additional picks.

    I think after it was all said and done, we used the draft pick gotten for J-Walk to get 4 additional picks, picking a total of 5 players.

    It was not Jennings.
    The Walker (Denver) draft pick was traded for more lower round picks that were then traded for more picks that were even lower yet. GB ended up with 3 or 4 5-7 round picks off the Walker deal.

    Actually I was counting Jennings/Colledge as one guy (not sure which was drafted after we traded down with the Walker pick), and then I think there were 4 other players drafted from the additional picks obtained by trading down using the Walker pick.

    there were other trades made that day but it looks like GB got #37 pick (2nd Round) from Denver.
    That pick was traded to Atlanta for #47 Colledge and #148 (5th round) Martin.
    So it is Walker for Colledge in the end.

    np bro :) Thats from the old "Thanks Javon" thread that I had sooo much fun with.

    Javon is still one of my favorite WR of the game so I'd like him back, but only with a Packer friendly contract. Not the $5.4 million he's scheduled to make or whatever that crazy amount is.

    I'd say a base of 2 mil plus incentives. Regardless of his immature act that got him out of GB, I think the unfortunate event of Darrent Williams murder literally in his arms has forced him to grow up a lot.

    Can't believe the vikings haven't signed him to a contract that makes zero sense. We all know the vikings love Green Bay castoffs.

    Wow, this makes GB look smart again. Young troublemaker with knee problems.

    Yeah, good times. Another reason to be thankful that PF.com doesn't practice the "art" of pruning. You can always go back an re-read the good stuff.

    Unfortunately Javon Walker has a lot of TO and Moss in him. I wouldn't want any of those guys.
