The Carolina  Panthers have agreed to terms with XFL star quarterback P.J Walker.

Walker becomes the first XFL player to sign with a NFL team since the rebirth and cancellation of its first season due to the Coronavirus.

The signing will reunite Walker with Panthers first-year coach Matt Rhule, who coached Walker for four years at Temple where the 5’11 quarterback shined.

Walker led the Houston Roughnecks to a perfect 5-0 record and XFL in passing yards (1,338 yards) and touchdown passes (15) before the season officially ended.

The Panthers have decided to make a change at QB after signing Teddy Bridgewater to a 3 year/63 mil contract. Walker will look to compete in Carolina for a roster spot and familiarity with Rhule’s system will be valuable.

Walker, 25, finished his college career at Temple as the all-time leader in virtually every passing statistic, including yards (10,668), touchdowns (74) and completions (830).
