Commanders ink deal with linebacker Mykal Walker

The Commanders have announced the signing of linebacker Mykal Walker to their offseason program. Walker, a familiar face to the team, 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 with Atlanta, he appeared in 49 games with 20 starts before being waived by the team 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. His experience and skills will be valuable to the Commanders as they prepare for the upcoming season, and his familiarity with Coach Quinn should help him acclimate quickly to the team.
