Commanders ink deal with linebacker Mykal Walker

The Commanders have kicked off their offseason program by welcoming back a familiar face to their lineup, linebacker Mykal Walker. On Tuesday, it was announced that Walker has signed with the franchise.

Walker previously played for the Falcons as a fourth-round pick in 2020, during Dan Quinn’s tenure as head coach. Over his first three seasons, he appeared in 49 games with 20 starts before being waived by Atlanta last August. After stints with Chicago and Las Vegas, Walker signed with Pittsburgh midway through the 2023 season. During his time with the Steelers, he appeared in eight games with five starts, tallying 33 total tackles with two for loss. Additionally, Walker showcased his versatility by recording two passes defensed and an interception.

Walker brings valuable experience and skills to the Commanders as they prepare for the upcoming season. His familiarity with Coach Quinn should help him acclimate quickly to the team and provide a boost to their defense. With Walker on board, the Commanders are looking forward to making some noise in the NFL next year.
