P.J. Walker – Carolina Panthers QB
Similar to Cam Erving, we saw exactly what we expected from P.J. Walker, which is solid play littered with turnovers. The quarterback ended the game with eight completions from 15 attempts for 107 passing yards, two interceptions as well as a fumble.
This type of production is synonymous with how Walker has fared throughout his time as a starter in the NFL.
Walker was pretty bullish on his performance after the game, saying to the present media “with the situation that I’m in I can’t afford to have those bad plays”. This is pretty telling of the position the former Temple man is in, as it looks as though the signal-caller will struggle to make the 53-man roster.
The one-time XFL MVP candidate has shown in the past he can do enough to win games. Walker is 2-0 as a starter, so one would would imagine if the player was cut by the Carolina Panthers, he’d find another home somewhere.
Walker may have a lifeline with rookie Matt Corral suffering a serious foot injury that is expected to sideline the Ole Miss product for his entire rookie campaign. Although this improves the veteran’s chances, the Panthers might now decide to move forward with just Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold initially.
