Question: Jason, where's the weekly question and answer session? It seems like you may disappeared on us.
Raider Johnny, Santa Clarita, Ca
Answer: It's back. Forgive me for not answering questions in a while. Nearly three weeks off as a new father plus all that goes on before that had me tied up.
Now it's time to dust off some more questions. Most were tied to Lane Kiffin's job status so there's not much to answer about that since he was fired while I was on paternity leave.
So go ahead and send more questions.
Question: Are the Raiders going to get rid of Javon Walker or Ronald Curry? What is going on? Is he under contract for eight years?
Answer: When it comes to Walker, the answer is no time soon.
This was sent before Walker's solid showing Sunday before the New York Jets, but I'm sure most of you aren't sold on Walker based off that.
Al Davis wants Walker to be on the team and believes he is a key to the success of JaMarcus Russell and the offense. Walker is under contract through 2013.
Curry might be a different story. He's lost his starting job and the word is he's not a Davis favorite. Add to that Curry's had problems catching the ball this season it's possible Curry's time is nearing an end.
He's under contract until 2011, but that means nothing if the Raiders simply want to be done with him.
The team has younger and cheaper options such as rookie Chaz Schilens who supplanted Curry as a starter and Arman Shields, the rookie on injured reserve.
That's all for now. Keep the questions coming.
