And what a (short) XFL season he had!
Walker was the only quarterback to lead his team to an undefeated record of 5-0, and he was leading the league in passing yards and touchdowns.
In Week 5, Walker and the Roughnecks traveled to Seattle to take on the Dragons – the Seahawks sent scouts to watch what would be his final performance, and he did not disappoint.
Walker completed 27-of-38 passes for 351 yards and three touchdowns, leading Houston to a 32-23 victory.
The 25-year old standout will now take his talents to Carolina, reuniting him with his former head coach at Temple, Matt Rhule.
Walker played under Rhule from 2013-16, and the dynamic duo turned around a struggling program.

Walker’s move to the Panthers will represent his return to the NFL. He was on the Indianapolis Colts‘ practice squad in 2017-18.
Former teammates are excited to watch Walker at the next level and see what he can do.
