Raiders head coach Tom Cable was noncommittal when asked whether WR Javon Walker would be back with the team in 2010. Walker played in just three games last season while Oakland turned to a young group at receiver featuring Chaz Schilens, Johnnie Lee Higgins and rookies Darrius Heyward-Bey and Louis Murphy.

"We've had the emergence of those young players, and really Louis Murphy, Chaz Schilens and Johnnie Lee Higgins give us something," Cable said at the Combine. "Darrius Heyward-Bey gets hurt and misses a good chunk of the season. So, I think (Walker hasn't played much because of) their development and trying to bring that group along. Will (Walker) be there next year? We'll see."

Walker, who signed with the Raiders before the 2008 campaign, didn't make a single catch last season and had only 15 grabs in eight games during an injury-plagued '08 season. Oakland has very little use for Walker, other than providing depth at receiver. He does not play on any special-teams units. Walker's contract runs through the 2013 season.
