BREAKING: Panthers to Sign XFL QB P.J. Walker

Schuyler Callihan

The Panthers have added to their quarterback room this morning by agreeing to a deal with XFL quarterback P.J. Walker, per multiple reports.

Walker was essentially the front-runner for the MVP award in the newly revamped league as he led the Houston Roughnecks to a perfect 5-0 record, throwing for 1,338 yards and 15 touchdowns to just four interceptions.

Walker played under first-year head coach Matt Rhule at Temple from 2013-16 and will add further competition to the quarterback room, joining Will Grier and Kyle Allen to compete for the backup role.

Love the PJ Walker signing! Clearly the MVP of the XFL and has great history with Coach Rhule as Temple’s all time winningest QB!

Panthers were able to get to him before the Seahawks and Broncos. He will backup Bridgewater. I covered him in the XFL, hopefully he will get a chance with a club to become a starter, after 2020.
