The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that the team has agreed to terms with wide receiver Derel Walker.
Walker (6-1, 188) comes to Tampa Bay after spending two seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League (CFL), starting 19-of-30 games, catching 198 passes for 2,699 yards and 16 touchdowns. Walker was named a West Division All-Star and CFL All-Star in both seasons.
Walker was named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Rookie following the 2015 campaign, when he caught 89 passes for 1,110 yards and six touchdowns and helped lead Edmonton to a Grey Cup victory. In 2016, Walker caught 109 passes for 1,589 yards, both the second-most in the CFL, while adding 10 touchdown receptions, tied for the second-most in the league.
A native of Hillsboro, Texas, Walker played collegiately at Texas A&M (2012-13) after two seasons at Trinity Valley Community College (2010-11). Following his collegiate career, he spent the 2014 offseason and preseason with the Tennessee Titans, but was waived prior to the start of the regular season.
The team also signed guard Jarvis Harrison to a futures contract.
