The Colts reached an agreement in principle with Walden on Tuesday.||||||| Walden became a key player for the Packers injury-riddled defense each of the past two seasons and at 6-2, 250 has the ideal size for Pagano's defense. The former sixth-round draft pick had 106 tackles, six sacks, six passes defensed and two interceptions with Green Bay in 2011 and 2012.
Posted July 31, 2012
The NFL has suspended Walden for the regular-season opener for violating the league's personal conduct policy. The league announced the punishment Tuesday and said Walden would not be paid for the Sept. 9 game against San Francisco.||||||| In February, Walden reached a deferred judgment agreement to resolve a disorderly conduct-domestic abuse charge without pleading guilty. Walden spent last Thanksgiving weekend in jail after a dispute with his girlfriend. He agreed to perform 50 hours of community service and continue counseling.

County District Attorney John Zakowski said Walden's girlfriend originally told police they were arguing and he pushed her but she has changed her story to say she hit him first.||||||| No formal charges have been filed, though prosecutors are still investigating. Zakowski said he needs more time to interview others to see if this is a case of miscommunication or if the woman is trying to protect Walden. He is scheduled to return to court Dec. 7.
