Chargers released C J.D. Walton.

Walton had been active only once since singing in late September. Veteran ILB Joe Mays has taken his roster spot.

Chargers signed C J.D. Walton.

Walton spent the summer with the Dolphins, but didn't make it to Week 1 with the team. The 28-year-old has made 52 career starts across five seasons.
Tue, Sep 29, 2015 08:21:00 PM

Dolphins released C J.D. Walton.

It's an endorsement of Mike Pouncey's (knee) health. It's a mild surprise for a team with precious little line depth, but Walton struggled mightily as a 16-game starter for the Giants last season. Walton's 52 games of starting experience at the pivot should earn him another chance sometime in the next month.
Sun, Aug 30, 2015 04:49:00 PM

Dolphins signed C J.D. Walton, formerly of the Giants.

Walton started all 16 games last season, but was among the game's worst centers. He'll back up Mike Pouncey in Miami. Walton turns 28 next week.
Thu, Mar 19, 2015 06:42:00 PM

Free agent C J.D. Walton will visit the Dolphins on Thursday.

Walton finished fourth-worst among qualified centers in PFF's position rankings in 2014. Mike Pouncey has already said he's moving back to center, so Walton would only be a backup if he signs with Miami or anywhere else.
Thu, Mar 19, 2015 11:46:00 AM

Giants released C J.D. Walton.

Scheduled for a $2.565 million cap hit in 2015, Walton's release was inevitable. Now that he's gone, the Giants are expected to hand over the reins to 2014 second-rounder Weston Richburg at center. In Pro Football Focus' center ratings, Walton finished 38th out of 41 players last season. He'll have trouble finding guaranteed money in free agency.
Mon, Mar 2, 2015 04:19:00 PM

ESPN New York believes the Giants could move on from C J.D. Walton.

PFF graded Walton as one of the worst starting centers in the league this past year. He's owed $2.5 million in salary and bonuses. Releasing Walton would allow 2014 second-rounder Weston Richburg to start at center.
Sat, Jan 24, 2015 02:29:00 PM

Giants C J.D. Walton (ankle) said he feels 100 percent healthy.

Walton hasn't played in a game since Week 4 of the 2012 season due to a broken ankle and its ensuing complications. He inked a two-year, $5 million deal that includes $3 million guaranteed with the Giants in March and is expected to get every opportunity to earn the starting job over rookie Weston Richburg.
Tue, May 20, 2014 11:40:00 AM

Giants signed C J.D. Walton to a two-year, $5 million contract.

Walton, 27 later this month, was claimed off waivers from the Broncos by the Redskins last December but never played a snap or participated in practice. He hasn't appeared in a game since Week 4 of 2012 due to complications from a broken ankle. The Giants ostensibly see Walton as their answer at center based on the money he received. $3 million of his contract is guaranteed.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 05:03:00 PM

Redskins claimed C J.D. Walton off waivers from the Broncos.

Walton was cut by the Broncos on Tuesday. He hasn't appeared in a regular season game since Week 4 of the 2012 campaign due to a broken ankle, which he experienced a setback with last summer. Will Montgomery is the Redskins' starting center. Walton will provide depth before hitting 2014 free agency.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 04:33:00 PM

Broncos waived C J.D. Walton.

The Broncos' starting center in 2010-11, Walton was limited to four games by a broken ankle in 2012. The injury lingered into 2013, where Walton began the year on the reserve/PUP list. He was activated on November 5, but had yet to appear in a game. Walton's release is a vote of confidence in C Manny Ramirez. Walton graded out as Pro Football Focus' worst center in 2011. He'll have to prove he's healthy before someone takes a flier on him for 2014.
Tue, Dec 17, 2013 05:07:00 PM

Broncos activated C J.D. Walton (ankle surgery) from the reserve/PUP list.

Walton was originally expected to miss the entire season after he went under the knife in June, but made a better than expected recovery. A broken ankle limited Walton to just four games in 2012. Fill-in Manny Ramirez has fared well in Walton's absence, so it's unlikely he'll be immediately reinserted into the starting lineup. Walton graded out as Pro Football Focus' worst center in 2011.
Tue, Nov 5, 2013 03:54:00 PM

Broncos placed C J.D. Walton (ankle surgery) on reserve/PUP.

The Broncos are holding out hope Walton can return sometime between Weeks 6 and 9. It remains an unlikely outcome. Walton's continued ankle problems have shown no signs of clearing up, leaving Manny Ramirez as the Week 1 starting center. Dan Koppen (ACL) is done for the year.
Tue, Aug 27, 2013 12:42:00 PM

Broncos placed C J.D. Walton (ankle surgery) on the active/PUP list.

He'll go on reserve/PUP at final cuts. Walton underwent a second surgery on his troublesome ankle in June. The Broncos are hopeful he'll be able to play in the season's second half "if all goes well with healing." Nick Koppen will be Denver's starter in Week 1. Walton is in the last year of his contract.
