NFL teams are constantly looking for help at the quarterback position, and Walker, who was the frontrunner for XFL MVP before the coronavirus pandemic forced the suspension of the 2020 season, has reportedly been on the radar of a few teams.
Walker will be one of many players to make the jump back to the NFL once teams are allowed to pursue them. XFL players were originally locked into their contracts until the summer but will be able to sign with other teams as soon as they complete exit physicals, Pro Football Talk reported.
The Roughnecks’ signal-caller finished as the league’s top passer. He had a league-high 15 touchdowns to go with only four interceptions, while guiding the XFL’s best team to a perfect 5-0 start.
