Green Bay PackersEdit

After Walker's one-year deal expired, he choose not to re sign with the Packers due to his lack of playing time.

Baltimore RavensEdit

On March 13, 2008, Walker was signed by the Baltimore Ravens. He had one interception in 2008 and 2009 each, but struggled with penalties. In December, 2008, Walker was accused of spitting in the mouth of Pittsburgh Steelers punter/holder Mitch Berger after Jeff Reed kicked an extra point in Pittsburgh's 13-9 win. [1] He appeared to have tried to dive into Reed's knees. A brief scuffle ensued. Berger apparently tried to break it up. At that point the spitting was supposed to have occurred. Walker denied the incident being intentional.

Minnesota VikingsEdit

Walker signed with the Minnesota Vikings on October 13, 2010.

Tennessee TitansEdit

On August 3, 2011, Walker signed with the Tennessee Titans, but was released in September.
