Commanders ink deal with linebacker Mykal Walker

The Commanders have announced the signing of a familiar face to their lineup, as linebacker Mykal Walker has joined 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, Walker appeared in 49 games with 20 starts before being waived by Atlanta last August.

Walker then spent time with Chicago and Las Vegas before signing 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 defended and an interception.

The Commanders are excited to add Walker to their roster as they prepare for the upcoming season. His valuable experience and skills will be an asset to the team, and his familiarity with Coach Quinn should help him acclimate quickly to the team environment. The addition of Walker is just one of many moves that the Commanders have made during their offseason program, and fans are eagerly anticipating what other changes will be made before opening day.
