Darwin Jamar Walker (born June 15, 1977) is a former American football defensive tackle. He was originally drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the third round of the 2000 NFL Draft. He played college football at Tennessee.
Walker has been a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills and Chicago Bears. He now works for Fox 29 in Philadelphia as a pre and post game analyst for the Philadelphia Eagles. He is also on the Board of Directors for Pennoni & Associates, responsible for creating business opportunity, utilizing his vast relationship network. Darwin Walker has many family members throughout the South Carolina and Atlanta area. Some family that are not mentioned much associated with Darwin are Douglas and Daron Walker.
Walker went to Walterboro High School in South Carolina and was a letterman in football and track and field. He also set the State Record in the Shot-Put, throwing over 63 feet, which has been subsequently broken by 1 inch. Further, he graduated 4th in his 4A High School class. Darwin is the epitome of Student-Athlete.
Subsequently, Walker was claimed off waivers by the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2000 season, where he played through the 2006 season.
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.
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).
On April 28, 2008, he signed with the Carolina Panthers.
