The Seattle Seahawks are signing veteran quarterback P.J. Walker to add depth going into the team's mandatory minicamp next week, NFL Network reported on Thursday.

Walker, 29, would join a quarterbacks room led by incumbent starter Geno Smith and third-year player Sam Howell, who was acquired in an offseason trade from the Washington Commanders.

Walker appeared in six games for the Cleveland Browns last season, going 1-1 as a starter. He completed 54 of 111 passes (48.6 percent) for 674 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions for a 52.2 passer rating.

Walker played for the Carolina Panthers from 2020-22, appearing in 15 games and going 4-3 as a starter. He completed 57.5 percent of his passes for the Panthers for 1,461 yards, five TDs and 11 interceptions for a 63.9 QB rating.

An undrafted free agent out of Temple, Walker also sent time with the Indianapolis Colts (2017-19) and Chicago Bears (2023) organizations.
