College career

Walker attended North Carolina State University for one year and would later transfer to the University of Tennessee, where he won a National Championship with the Tennessee Vols in 1998.

Professional career

Arizona Cardinals

Walker was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the third round of the 2000 NFL Draft, but was released before playing a game.

Philadelphia Eagles

Subsequently, Walker was claimed off waivers by the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2000 season, where he played through the 2006 season.

Buffalo Bills

He was then traded on March 26, 2007 (along with a conditional 2008 draft pick) to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Takeo Spikes and quarterback Kelly Holcomb. However, there was a proviso to that trade stating that if Walker did not report to Bills training camp by August 5, 2007, he would be returned to the Eagles in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in 2008. He reportedly held out for a contract extension and never reported to Buffalo's training camp that year.[1]

Chicago Bears

On July 29, 2007, the Buffalo Bills traded Walker's rights to the Chicago Bears in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick in 2008 (the Bears were in need of a defensive tackle after having waived troubled defensive lineman Tank Johnson in the 2007 offseason).

Carolina Panthers

On April 28, 2008, he signed with the Carolina Panthers.
