According to, the Minnesota Vikings were on the verge of signing former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Javon Walker Monday, according to an unidentified source.

The Vikings did not release any information of the potential signing.

Walker was a teammate of current Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, and the two had a falling out after Walker held out during the 2005 preseason in a contract dispute. The Packers traded Walker after that season.

Since then, Walker has had two unproductive years with the Oakland Raiders.
