Walker agreed to a deal with the Eagles on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The 24-year-old was waived by the Jaguars with an injury settlement after at the end of training camp last year, and he never ended up seeing the field in 2020. Walker appeared in seven games for Jacksonville in 2019 and primarily worked as a returner, which is likely the role he'll compete for in Philadelphia.
The Jaguars waived Walker (knee) with an injury settlement Wednesday, per the NFL's official transaction report. Walker played seven games for the Jaguars last season but he couldn't stay healthy during training camp this year. He'll look to get healthy before seeking a special-teams role elsewhere.
Walker (knee) reverted to injured reserve Sunday, per the league's official transactions report. Walker went unclaimed after having been waived/injured Saturday. He appeared in seven games for Jacksonville as a special-teams asset in 2019.
The Jaguars activated Walker off the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday morning, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports Walker caught on with the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie last year, starting off on the practice squad before getting promoted to the active roster in early November. He ended up playing in seven games, taking 18 kick returns for 411 yards (22.8 average), three punt returns for 13 yards and two catches for 15 yards. Walker will need to battle for a roster spot in the coming weeks.
The Jaguars placed Walker (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday. As an undrafted rookie last season, Walker got some run with the 53-man roster starting Week 9, serving as the Jaguars' kick returner and hauling in two of three targets before hitting IR in late December due to a hamstring injury. His potential to make the final roster this season was touchy following the additions of Laviska Shenault and Collin Johnson in the 2020 draft. With his placement on the COVID list, Walker has to pass the required testing protocol before he's able to take part in camp.
