Former XFL superstar for the Houston Roughnecks, PJ Walker, got some playing time this weekend in a preseason matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. Walker had been signed by the Carolina Panthers last year, and served as the backup for Teddy Bridgewater.
Now that the Panthers signed Sam Darnold in the offseason, Walker will most likely end up being his backup. However, he played quite well in his first preseason game this year, and did enough to turn some heads.
This is what you call, extended the play and it results in a huge gain for the #Panthers
For example, the throw above is the type of playmaking abilities that coaches want to see. We saw PJ do this plenty of times in the XFL – using his legs to keep the play alive, and then finding someone down the field.
