Kevin Walker (born December 24, 1965 in Denville, New Jersey) who went to West Milford High School in West Milford, New Jersey was an American football linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League.[1] Walker is most notable for making the tackle that ultimately ended the career of Bo Jackson.

Pro career[edit]

Walker was a 3rd round draft choice of the Cincinnati Bengals out of the University of Maryland in the 1988 NFL Draft. Walker was a regular throughout the 1989 and 1990 seasons and was a part of the Cincinnati Bengals team that reached Super Bowl XXIII. During the 1990 playoffs, Walker made a routine tackle on Los Angeles Raiders star running back Bo Jackson that caused a serious hip injury that ended Jackson's football career.

Walker's career came to an end with an injury of his own torn knee ligament during a game against the New York Giants. Walker had previously injured a knee during the 1988 season.
