QB - CAR
Quarterback P.J. Walker, who was a standout star in the XFL before their season was cut short due to coronavirus concerns, has agreed to a deal with the Carolina Panthers, according to multiple reports.
The Panthers signed Teddy Bridgewater to be their starting quarterback this offseason, but it is worth noting that Walker will be reuniting with his college head coach, Matt Rhule, with the Panthers. That could give him an advantage over Bridgewater in the early going, but the latter is still likely to start given the financial commitment the Panthers made.
The Colts part ways with backup quarterback Philip Walker. This leaves Jacoby Brissett as the only healthy quarterback on the team. The Colts will have to add more depth at the position, and with the Patriots dropping Brian Hoyer, this could be an attractive landing spot for the veteran.
Now that Jacoby Prissett is the only quarterback available for Week 1, his role as the season-long starter appears to be secure.
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 fellow QB Chad Kelly as they battle for the backup job to Jacoby Brissett. It looks like Walker may end up with the third-string role if he does make the team.
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 has a chance to win the backup QB job with Andrew Luck retiring and Jacoby Brissett moving into the starting role. But the 24-year-old has struggled this preseason and looks like he has fallen behind Chad Kelley on the depth chart. Walker will need a big game in the last preseason matchup to have a chance to make the final roster.
Phillip Walker was just 8-for-18 passing for 85 yards with an interception in Thursday's preseason loss at Buffalo.
Walker may have been past on the depth chart by Chad Kelly who had a better game on Thursday. Walker who spend time on the Colt's practice squad last season has a slim chance of making the final roster and is not worth owning in fantasy.
