Report: Vikings will release Javon Walker

While Brett Favre waits for his favorite target Sidney Rice to heal from ill-timed hip surgery, he’s not going to be able to rekindle an on-field relationship that worked for him in the past.

The Minnesota Vikings are releasing Javon Walker, who starred for Favre in Green Bay before knee issues, among other things, conspired to bring down his career. Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports what he calls somewhat surprising news.

The Vikings signed Walker just before they completed a trade with the Miami Dolphins for Greg Camarillo and the team must have determined that Walker will not be able to hold up in an NFL season.
