If you’re keeping count, Javon Walker is now the second Oakland Raider to have a secret surgery this off-season.
This was the news today as reported by David White of the SF Chronicle. White has been Twittering all day long at the first day of a mandatory mini-camp, giving obsessive Raider fans their first real fix of 2009.
Not that there isn’t enough ammo in the gun ready to fire Javon Walker, there are reports that the Oakland Raiders have signed former Chief wide receiver Samie Parker.
Including first round pick Darrius Heyward-Bey and fourth round selection Louis Murphy, the Raiders have now added a total of five new receivers to their roster in 2009.
Competition is going to be fierce with Johnnie Lee Higgins and Chaz Schilens eager to show Al Davis that he already had a couple of number one receivers on his payroll before giving Heyward-Bey his first check.
With an eye on everything that happened today, White has this to say about how Schilens performed and what he thinks of Javon Walker.

David White might be a journalist and must remain neutral. But he speaks for Raider Nation and I hope that Al Davis is following him on Twitter.
