The 27-year old Peterson entered the league with Chicago as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2016 from Oklahoma State and played in six games (one start) with the Rams in 2017 and had 10 tackles, two interceptions and one fumble recovery. He spent the preseason with the Tennessee Titans.

Rodgers (6-4, 257) is a seven-year NFL veteran who played in 84 games (28 starts) with Philadelphia (2018-20) and Green Bay (2014-17) in his career and has 145 receptions for 1,518 yards and 15 touchdowns. He entered the league with the Packers as a third-round selection (98th overall) in the 2014 NFL Draft out of California and spent four seasons with Green Bay prior to playing the past three years in Philadelphia. The 29-year old Rodgers spent the preseason with the Eagles and was on their practice squad earlier this season.

The 28-year Walker was originally drafted by Philadelphia in the seventh round (251st overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft out of Oregon and played in 12 games with the Eagles in 2017 prior to joining the Cardinals. Last year, Walker played in 12 games with San Francisco and he spent this preseason with Washington. In his career, Walker has 73 tackles (45 solo) on defense and 21 tackles on special teams.
