Broncos Reportedly Exercise Option in J. Walker's Contract
The Denver Broncos reportedly have exercised an option in Javon Walker's contract to retain the wide receiver for the next five seasons.
The team exercised the option in recent days, the Denver Post reported, and owes Walker $10.7 million.
The option bonus was written into the six-year, $43 million deal that Walker signed with the Broncos after being obtained in a trade with the Green Bay Packers during last year's NFL draft. Walker was coming off a major knee injury at the time and the structure of the contract would have enabled the Broncos to cut their ties with Walker this offseason without paying the option bonus if he hadn't recovered sufficiently.
