Panthers signing XFL standout QB P.J. Walker

Panthers signing XFL standout QB P.J. Walker

The Carolina Panthers are expected to sign free-agent quarterback and former XFL star P.J.

Earlier this offseason, the Broncos, Seahawks and Cardinals all reached out to Houston's XFL team to inquire about the 25-year-old quarterback.

The level of competition he faced certainly deserves an asterisk, but Walker (5-foot-11, 216 pounds) looked like the most dynamic QB in the XFL this past season.

Walker was the XFL's leading passer and front-runner for the MVP award with the Houston Roughnecks before the season was canceled.

Senate Democrats have said the final product of the GOP-backed bill didn't meet their minimum demands. Discussions continued Monday morning between both sides and Mnuchin.


His ties with newly-appointed Panthers head coach Matt Rhule date back to their time together at Temple, where Walker threw a career 10,668 passing yards for 74 touchdowns over four seasons from 2013-2016. His arrival will not threaten Teddy Bridgewater's current status as the projected starter.

They still have Cam Newton dangling on the roster as they try to find a place to trade him before they have to release him, along with Kyle Allen and Will Grier.

This is a great signing.
