Tampa signs CFL WR to future reserve


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed wide receiver Derel Walker to their future reserve. Walker was signed by the Titans in 2014 as an undrafted free agent, but after that year’s preseason he was released.

The former Texas A&M receiver and former teammate of Mike Evans then signed to the Edmonton Eskimos playing for two years. Over that period he caught 198 passes for 2,699 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Walker joins eight other players signed to futures contracts this offseason: RB Blake Sims, TE Kivon Cartwright, CB Cody Riggs, K John Lunsford, OL Josh Allen, TE Tevin Westbrook, S Isaiah Johnson, and OL Mike Liedtke.
