Charles Walker has battled w/ depression

Oklahoma DL Charles Walker has been taking Prozac to treat a depression diagnosis.


Wow thats pretty awesome. Nice to hear hes getting control of it and re-focused.

There are probably so many guys who come through the NFL who have a mental illness and dont get diagnosed with it and end up falling through the cracks of the NFL.


A local radio host Issac Scukanec who was a All American offensive lineman at BYU and NFL said that by the time he go to the pros he was so beat and depressed and anxiety ridden from all the damage of high school and college football and the entire violent ride of football and football culture and the anxiety of making the pros. He would just lay in his hotel all day sad not wanting to get out of bed from the physical and mental pain.

Meanwhile he wasn't drafted and had to make the team and during the day hes struggling to get out of bed to even go outside and be a normal person.

He ended up cut, homeless , drunk and slowly going insane on a beach in Tampa

He had to come home and get treated for depression and anxiety and once he got some help, his life sky rocketed, he quit football but became a really talented and locally award winning sports radio host, become a husband and father and had a big family and lives a awesome life now.

I hope Walker makes the team, we could use some depth at DL bad!

I wonder did they decide to take this on because they felt good about how they handled Brooks anxiety

Waived Evans, Signed Salako.

Also I saw something that said we signed the best name in the draft, Weston Steelhammer.

Didn't sign him, he's a tryout player.

Only other notable name on there is Joe Yearby, the RB from Miami.
