DENVER â€” On the day he signed a five-year contract extension worth between $40 million and $42 million with the Denver Broncos, former Packers receiver Javon Walker said Ted Thompson, not Brett Favre, was the reason he demanded a trade from Green Bay.
After a Pro Bowl season in 2004, Walker requested a new deal. He threatened to hold out of training camp, which drew a sharp rebuke from Favre.
On Wednesday, however, Walker said Favre wasnâ€™t why he soured on Green Bay: â€œI would play with Favre if he went to another team. The thing I liked about him was he gave me a chance to make plays.â€
