PJ Walker showed cause for concern in his preseason action

This could be an overreaction to one preseason game, but after Fields went to the sideline and PJ Walker came in, things changed drastically. Walker was a bit off on a couple of throws, and threw a bad interception on his very first throw of the game. Walker went deep to Equanimeous St. Brown, but the throw wasn't even close and was picked off.

In contrast, Nathan Peterman looked fine. He finished 4-of-6 for 58 yards on the day. But, who we should really be talking about is the undrafted rookie Tyson Bagent, who came in and completed 4-of-5 passes for 37 yards and looked sharp.

Bagent came out of Shepherd as an incredibly accurate passer, having thrown over 2,000 passes in college ball and completing 70 percent of those passes. Regardless of level of competition, that number is astounding. And, in his limited action against the Titans, Bagent looked accurate as per usual.

Walker should be on alert, because if he struggles again in his second preseason game, people might start making a case for Bagent to be moved up. Bagent is a sneaky athlete and can run, too, which would make for a great backup situation in Chicago, having a mobile quarterback like Fields starting.

Again, this could be somewhat of an overreaction, but Walker needs to step it up. Bagent looked like he wanted it.
