  • Commanders' Mykal Walker: Goes to Washington

    Walker signed a contract with the Commanders on Tuesday.

    Walker suited up eight times for the Steelers in 2023, recording 33 tackles (21 solo) and two passes defended, including one interception. It was a reduced role from his 2022 campaign with the Falcons, which saw him cross the century mark in tackles. He'll likely be a depth option in Washington's linebacker corps this season.

  • Steelers' Mykal Walker: Grabs first interception of year

    Walker recorded three tackles (one solo) while intercepting a pass and deflecting another in Thursday's 21-18 loss to the Patriots.

    Walker played a smaller role on Pittsburgh's defense in Week 14, but he was still able to pick off Bailey Zappe in the third quarter, snatching his first interception of the season. The linebacker has compiled 20 tackles, an interception and a pass deflection over four games since joining the Steelers on Nov. 18.

  • Steelers' Mykal Walker: Steelers' leading tackler vs. Cards

    Walker recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 24-10 loss versus the Cardinals.

    Sunday's game was the first in which Walker managed a double-digit tackle total since Week 8 of last season. He should continue to be heavily involved as long as Cole Holcomb (knee) and Kwon Alexander (Achilles) remain sidelined.

  • Steelers' Mykal Walker: Joins active roster

    The Steelers signed Walker off the practice squad to their active roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns.

    The 26-year-old was added to ensure depth at inside linebacker, as the team has already lost Kwon Alexander (Achilles), Cole Holcomb (knee) and Chapelle Russell (undisclosed) to injuries thus far. Walker's last in-game action came with the Falcons in 2022, when he started 12 games and tallied 107 total tackles.

  • Mykal Walker: Let go by Chicago

    The Bears waived Walker on Tuesday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Walker appeared in 16 games with the Falcons during the 2022 campaign but was waived by the team in mid-August. He landed with the Bears a day later but was unable to secure a spot on Chicago's 53-man roster. Given his role with Atlanta last season, it wouldn't be surprising to see him find an opportunity elsewhere.

  • Bears' Mykal Walker: Lands in the Windy City

    The Bears claimed Walker off waivers from the Falcons on Monday.

    One day after getting waived by the Falcons, Walker has quickly found a new home. The 2020 fourth-round pick played in 16 games (12 starts) for Atlanta last season and accumulated 107 tackles (56 solo) in the process. He will now look to earn a role providing depth at middle linebacker behind Tremaine Edmunds.

  • Mykal Walker: Gets let go

    Walker was waived by the Falcons on Sunday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Walker's exit comes as a surprise after he appeared in 16 games last season -- starting 12 -- and recorded 107 tackles (56 solo). A fourth-round selection in the 2020 Draft, the Fresno State product will now have to work to find a new opportunity elsewhere.
