In a week with all the flurry, and tough thoughts about Brett Favre retiring, Javon Walker wanted to get more of a media circus around himself. Even though he already is having a bad offseason, and a team of reporters now following him 24/7 as if he were Brittany Spears, that just wasn't enough.



This time after the Oakland Raiders finished up practice Thursday Javon was informing team officials that he wished to retire.



He was counseled by Al Davis and he reportedly told Al, that he was willing to give back his eleven Million dollar signing bonus. Somehow Al Davis was able to get inside of Walker's head and convinced him to stay.



Javon Apologized to the team, and was qouted afterwards saying, "It's done. It's a non-issue."
