Walker Texas Ranger?
Nope. Dallas Walker. Another player that fits the funny name criteria that Tom Telesco has. Based off of his funny name love, I fully expect the Chargers to end up with Menelik Watson after the first round of the draft. Hopefully we get him after trading down.
Back to Dallas Walker. If you caught the dump this morning, you will notice the article about us signing Walker to the team. Walker was a member of the Georgia Rampage, an indoor football league team. He signed with the Chargers on a 3-year deal and will likely be another camp body, possibly a practice squad guy.
Walker is a 6-foot-6 tight end that played college ball with Western Michigan. He was a dual threat in Junior College playing quarterback and wide receiver. His numbers at Western Michigan are underwhelming, since he wasn’t even a starter, but he is given a chance and that is all some people need.
At least he has that height that Philip Rivers likes. Now, can he catch? Can he block? At least he will be learning from Antonio Gates and will be catching balls from Philip Rivers. Must be a dream come true for this kid.
