Brett Favre (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/1025) says he's disappointed with teammate Javon Walker (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/5906)'s contract holdout, and the Green Bay Packers (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/teams/packers) can get along without the Pro Bowl wide receiver if they must.

"If Javon wants to know what his quarterback thinks, and I would think he might, I'd tell him he's going about this the wrong way," Favre said in a telephone interview with the Green Bay Press-Gazette, posted on the newspaper's Web page Tuesday.

I also heard say that he (Favre) said something like I guess I'm kind of old school because I believe when you sign a contract and that you honor it.

I'm just paraphrasing, it was something along those lines. Hr also said he hopes Green Bay doesn't give in to Javon's demands, I'm surprised he said that, but I'd be kind of pissed too.

Vikings safety Darren Sharper strongly criticized Packers quarterback Brett Favre for sticking his nose into wide receiver Javon Walker's contract dispute. Sharper was asked what weight Favre's words can carry with another player on the Packers. "No weight," Sharper said. "They don't carry any weight right now because Javon Walker is a Pro Bowl player and he's going to do what he wants to do. He is not in Javon's shoes right now. Javon should not pay attention to his comments at all. What's going on with the minicamps and whether or not Javon's there -- Brett wasn't at minicamp so it really doesn't make a difference who is there. I have the utmost respect for Brett and what he feels as far as guys on his team but when it comes to contract situations, those are personal matters. Brett should not have anything to say about that. It has nothing to do with him."
