DeMarcus Walker

“I’m a relentless player with skills. I’m all in wherever they want me to play. I’m going to go after the quarterback to win games. …Even if I would’ve came in as the first pass rusher, I would’ve always had a chip on my shoulder. I believe I am going to prove myself — maybe even more so right now, for sure.”~DeMarcus Walker.
