Update [2007-6-11 11:20:11 by Brian G]: According to CB at BuffaloBills.com, Walker is officially not in attendance this morning (6/11) at the mandatory mini-camp.
Can't say I didn't tell you so - the AP reports that Darwin Walker is prepared to miss Bills mini-camp, which is a mandatory camp that starts tomorrow. Citing the lack of a new deal and contract negotiations that are moving at a "snail's pace", Walker will likely be fined for each day he misses of the three-day camp.
This news comes after reports broke on Friday that Walker and the Bills were working on a contract extension with the goal of getting Walker into his first mandatory session with the Bills. At this point, for a deal to happen even during the mini-camp seems wishful thinking.
Said Walker's agent, Albert Irby:
I still have faith that a deal will be done before training camp. The fact that the two sides are still talking is promising. Stay tuned, though - you never know how quickly or slowly these things can be resolved.
