P.J. Walker Landing With Seahawks

Veteran quarterback P.J. Walker is signing with the Seattle Seahawks, according to The 29-year-old spent last season with the Cleveland Browns, completing just 48.6% of his passes for 674 yards, one touchdown, and five interceptions in six game appearances. Overall, the 2017 undrafted free agent has racked up 2,135 passing yards, six passing touchdowns, six interceptions, and 80 rushing yards in 21 career games with the Browns and Carolina Panthers. With Geno Smith and Sam Howell already on the Seattle roster, Walker is likely capped at being the team's QB3 this offseason. He could become the team's emergency third quarterback in the regular season.

Browns Promote P.J. Walker To Active Roster

The Cleveland Browns signed quarterback P.J. Walker to the active roster on Tuesday. He had been on their practice squad. The move comes in conjunction with Cleveland's announcement that rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson (hip) has been placed on injured reserve. Walker, who will now back up Joe Flacco, started three games for the Browns earlier this season, completing just 49.5 percent of his passes for 618 yards, one touchdown, five interceptions, and one lost fumble.

P.J. Walker Throws For 56 Yards In Relief In Week 12

Cleveland Browns quarterback P.J. Walker completed six of his 13 passes for 56 yards and lost a fumble in a 29-12 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 12. Walker opened the game as the backup but was pressed into service after Dorian Thompson-Robinson suffered a concussion in the third quarter of the contest. The offense struggled under Walker as they were shut out after the change was made at quarterback. Cleveland is unlikely to have Thompson-Robinson back in time for a Week 13 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, meaning it will be either Walker or the newly-signed Joe Flacco under center in that game. Stay tuned.

P.J. Walker Struggles In Week 8

Cleveland Browns quarterback P.J. Walker completed 15 of his 31 passes for 248 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions while adding six rushes for 27 yards in a 24-20 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 8. Walker's touchdown pass, his first of the season, went to David Njoku in the first quarter. His second interception was a back-breaking pick as the Browns had a chance to close out the road win near midfield on a third-and-three. The Browns stated on Sunday that they will continue to play it safe with Deshaun Watson's shoulder injury, so it is likely that Walker will be back out there in Week 9 to face off against the Arizona Cardinals.

P.J. Walker A QB3 In Week 8

Cleveland Browns quarterback P.J. Walker will draw the start in a Week 8 road matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The Browns ruled Deshaun Watson (shoulder) out earlier in the week, setting Walker up for his second start in the past three games. The Seahawks have been close to average against quarterbacks in fantasy this season as they are allowing the 11th-most fantasy points per game to the position. Even though it isn't a daunting matchup, Walker has not shown much upside in the Cleveland offense this season as he's thrown for 370 yards, no touchdowns, and three interceptions in two games. He is a QB3 in fantasy for Week 8.

P.J. Walker Throws For 178 Yards In Relief In Week 7

Cleveland Browns quarterback P.J. Walker completed 15 of his 32 passes for 178 yards and an interception while adding three yards on three carries in a 39-38 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7. It was Deshaun Watson, not Walker, who got the start in Week 7 but the former left the game for good after his head bounced off the turf on a big hit in the first quarter. Walker came on in relief of Watson and didn't look particularly sharp, but he did enough to lead Cleveland to a wild win in Week 7. Watson's status for a Week 8 road matchup against the Seattle Seahawks is up in the air this early in the week, but Walker would presumably be the starter if Watson can't suit up. Stay tuned.

P.J. Walker Throws Two INTs In Upset Win In Week 6

Cleveland Browns quarterback P.J. Walker completed 18 of his 34 passes for 192 yards and two interceptions in a 19-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6. Walker didn't play particularly well in place of the injured Deshaun Watson (shoulder) but he did enough to lead Cleveland to an upset win over the heavily favored 49ers. There have been conflicting reports regarding when Watson will be ready to return to the field, but there's been some hope that he will be ready to play in Week 7's road game against the Indianapolis Colts. If Watson's shoulder isn't ready to go, Walker would presumably be back under center for that game. He will not be a recommended fantasy option for that contest if he winds up starting.

P.J. Walker A QB2 Vs. 49ers In Week 6

Cleveland Browns quarterback P.J. Walker will take over as the starter for the injured Deshaun Watson (shoulder) in a Week 6 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Walker will have a tough test ahead of him as the 49ers have been a challenge for fantasy quarterbacks in 2023, allowing just the 29th-most fantasy points per game to the position through five games. Walker made three starts in 2022 as a member of the Carolina Panthers, throwing for 602 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception. Fantasy gamers in two-quarterback formats can consider Walker as a plug-and-play option heading into Week 6 if they are desperate for a signal-caller.

P.J. Walker To Be Elevated To Active Roster

Cleveland Browns quarterback P.J. Walker will be on the active roster on Sunday and could serve as the starter if Deshaun Watson (shoulder) can't suit up. Coach Kevin Stefanski already confirmed that Walker will be the next in line over rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson this week. Watson skipped Week 4 with his shoulder ailment and is missing practices to begin this week. This will be Walker's second elevation from the practice squad this season. If a team wants to activate someone for a fourth time, they must be added to the 53-man roster.

P.J. Walker Cut By Chicago

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.

P.J. Walker Struggles For Second Straight Game

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.
