And look, I get that Walker was never all that likeable.
But in an age where most profiles of former players read like a repair checklist on a 73' Volkswagen, it's refreshing to see a player transition into retirement with what looks like the majority of his physical and mental capabilities still intact.
If anything, Walker's second career at least looks to be going smoother than his first one.
If you recall, Walker's playing days started out with immense promise - cresting with 89 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 TD's in 2004 - but they fizzled out in a wave of holdouts, injuries, and Brett Favre running him out of Green Bay in one of the more underrated railroad jobs in NFL history.
He was drafted by the Green Bay Packers 20th overall of the 2002 NFL Draft. Walker has also played for the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders.
He was selected to the Pro Bowl with the Packers in 2004.
"I just don't like the way the organization runs itself", Walker told
Javon Liteff Walker is a retired American football wide receiver.
Walker placed first in the Men’s Physique Masters division of the NPC True Strength Classic this past September, and third in Men’s Physique Class F of the NPC National Championships in November.
“It’s a new challenge,” he said in an NPC interview at the National Championships.
“I’m Youtube’ing a lot of videos and trying to pick up a lot of the craft from the best,” he said.
“To relate it to football, if I’m getting ready to play a game I’ll look at what Jerry Rice or Michael Irvin did on film.” He said he similarly picks up strategy from elite bodybuilders.
