Three NFL Teams Reportedly Interested in PJ Walker

Three NFL Teams Reportedly Interested in PJ Walker

As you know by now the XFL was forced to suspend the 2020 season due to the coronavirus. The league also announced that they would be playing the players for the rest of their contract but that they’d be able to sign with the NFL (or any other league) upon completion of their exit physical. Since then we haven’t seen any signing, but we reported earlier this week that the NFL has been in contact with the XFL to work though a deal so NFL franchises can start signing XFL players.

According to Mark Berman of FOX 26 Houston, the Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks have all contacted the Houston Roughnecks to inquire about PJ Walker.

PJ Walker has long been one of the most speculated candidates for a jump from the XFL to the NFL. The 25-year-old signal-caller finished his Roughnecks debut as the league’s top passer in terms of both yards and touchdowns, throwing for 1,338-yards and 15 TDs compared to just four interceptions while guiding Houston to an undefeated 5-0 early season. A walking highlight reel for the XFL’s first season back in action, Walker originally went undrafted out of Temple in 2017, spending the first two years of his career on and off the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad, where he learned under Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett.

Arizona, Denver and Seattle could all be in the market for backup or developmental QBs. The Cardinals don’t have a proven arm behind Kyler Murray, the Broncos just released Joe Flacco as Drew Lock’s No. 2, and the Seahawks don’t have anyone other than Russell Wilson under contract at QB.
