Veteran quarterback P.J. Walker is now looking for a new team after being cut by the Chicago Bears on Sunday. The 28-year-old was brought in on a two-year contract during the offseason to backup Justin Fields but he struggled in training camp. The Bears opted to keep undrafted rookie Tyson Bagent and veteran Nathan Peterman instead. Walker played the last three seasons with the Carolina Panthers, where he compiled a 4-3 record in seven starts.

Chicago Bears quarterback P.J. Walker got the start in the team's Week 2 preseason loss against the Indianapolis Colts. Walker played two drives going 1-for-4 for just six passing yards, and was sacked twice. This follows a game where Walker went 4-for-8 and threw a bad interception in the team's preseason opener. The former Carolina Panther has been outperformed by all three quarterbacks that the Bears have played during their first two preseason games. Chicago signed Walker as the clear backup to Justin Fields, but he must play better to secure that role ahead of the regular season.
