Charles David "Chuck" Walker (born August 10, 1941 in Uniontown, Pennsylvania) was a defensive tackle who played 12 seasons in the National Football League for the St. Louis Cardinals and the Atlanta Falcons. Walker attended Duke University. He was a consistent starter for both teams during the course of his career earning Pro Bowl honors in 1966. He was a key defensive contributor during the Falcons first ever winning season in 1973.

Chuck is father to Bryan Walker, a standout on the Southeast Missouri State University football team in the late 90's. He holds many non-football related records within the town of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Bryan's most noteworthy accomplishments are due to his relationship with his then teammate Jason "Debo" DeWolf.
