    Panthers' P.J. Walker: Joins crowded QB room in Carolina

    Phillip Walker is signing with the Carolina Panthers, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.Walker was well on his way to MVP honors in the XFL, posting a 15:4 TD:INT while leading the Houston Roughnecks to a 5-0 record. He previously spent time with the Colts' practice squad from 2017 to 2019, never quite making it to the active roster for a regular-season game. The 25-year-old now joins a crowded QB room in Carolina, where Teddy Bridgewater, Cam Newton (foot), Will Grier (foot) and Kyle Allen all have spots on the roster. Newton likely will be cut or traded soon enough, leaving Walker to duke it out with Grier and Allen for one or two roster spots behind Bridgewater. The XFL star may have been swayed by the chance to reunite with Panthers coach Matt Rhule, who was the head coach at Temple for each of Walker's four collegiate seasons.

    P.J. Walker: Generating NFL interest

    The Seahawks, Cardinals and Broncos have all contacted the XFL's Houston Roughnecks to ask about Phillip Walker, Mark Berman of FOX 26 reports.Walker and wide receiver Cam Phillips were the big stars of the XFL, leading Houston to a 5-0 record before the rest of the season was suspended. Walker led the league in passing yards (1,338) and touchdowns (15), completing 64.7 percent of his throws while tossing just four interceptions. He previously spent time with the Colts' practice squad in 2017, 2018 and 2019, never quite managing to secure the No. 2 quarterback job. It sounds like it won't be long before he gets another shot in the NFL.

    Phillip Walker: Cut by Colts

    Phillip Walker was cut by the Colts on Saturday, Jim Ayello of the Indianapolis Star reports.Walker was unable to capitalize on the opportunity of securing the roster spot opened up by Andrew Luck's abrupt retirement, completing only 50 percent of his passes this preseason. With Chad Kelly suspended for the first two games of the regular season, it seems increasingly likely the Colts will acquire another quarterback before Week 1 to back up starter Jacoby Brissett.

    Colts' Phillip Walker: Struggles in preseason finale

    Phillip Walker completed eight of 16 passes for 90 yards and added 10 yards on three rushing attempts in Thursday's preseason finale against the Bengals.Walker was outplayed by Chad Kelly, who also got the start in this one. While it appears Walker will be relegated to a third-string role when Kelly returns from his two-game suspension, Walker should open the season as Jacoby Brissett's backup while Kelly sits out the first two weeks. However, the Indianapolis Colts may try to acquire a veteran backup before Week 1 with Walker's mediocre preseason performance.

    Colts' Phillip Walker: Struggles again Saturday

    Phillip Walker was 6-of-13 passing for 65 yards with an interception and also lost a fumble in Saturday's preseason loss to Chicago.Walker struggled Saturday and hasn't been impressive this preseason. It was notable that Chad Kelly got the start Saturday with Jacoby Brissett sitting out as Walker may have fallen to third string. With Kelly suspended the first two games, Walker will likely be Indy's backup quarterback with the surprise retirement of Andrew Luck. However, the Indianapolis Colts could be in the market to boost their quarterback depth with the news of Luck's retirement, so Walker's spot on the roster could be in jeopardy.

    Colts' Phillip Walker: Improves in second preseason game

    Phillip Walker was 10-of-17 passing for 109 yards with no interceptions or touchdowns in Saturday's preseason loss to Cleveland.Walker improved from his subpar first preseason game, but he was outperformed by Chad Kelly again in the battle for the third-QB role. However, with Kelly set to miss the first two games of the regular season due to a suspension, Walker could begin the season as the third quarterback. The Indianapolis Colts may keep a third quarterback on the roster, which they usually don't do, given Andrew Luck's questionable status for the start of the season due to ankle and calf injuries.
