Tha Carolina Panthers signed free agent defensive lineman Darwin Walker on Monday. Walker had been with the Chicago Bears.
According to the Rock Hill Herald:
The Panthers struck quickly to fill their hole on the defensive line, signing veteran Darwin Walker to a one-year deal Monday morning.His agent, Al Irby, said the Panthers “were on the phone with us all weekend.”
The 30-year-old Walker lends immediate credibility to the line, which was questionable after starters Damione Lewis and Maake Kemoeatu.
Terms were undisclosed, but there were at least two other teams talking to Walker, who elected to come here to stay near his South Carolina roots.
