Commanders sign linebacker Mykal Walker

The Washington Commanders kicked off their offseason program on Tuesday, and general manager Adam Peters is still making moves.

The Commanders signed veteran linebacker Mykal Walker on Tuesday, the third linebacker they’ve signed since free agency opened last month, joining Frankie Luvu and Bobby Wagner.

Walker, 26, was a fourth-round pick of the Atlanta Falcons in the 2020 NFL draft out of Fresno State. Washington head coach Dan Quinn was the Falcons head coach when they selected Walker.

After three seasons with the Falcons, the 6-foot-3, 232-pound Walker was released in August 2023. The Bears claimed Walker off waivers and released him two weeks later. From there, he signed with the Raiders and was placed on the practice squad. After one month with Las Vegas, Walker was released and signed by the Steelers.

Walker appeared in eight games for Pittsburgh last season, making five starts. He recorded 33 tackles, including two for loss.
