To secure the 25-year-old's services, general manager Danny Maciocia traded a sixth-round pick in the 2023 draft.

"We are adding depth to our team," the CEO said in a statement from his organization. Walter delivered the goods every time his name was called and he is very talented. He knows our league and that's a huge asset for us."

In 11 career games with the Elks, Fletcher had 302 yards on 67 carries. He also caught 22 balls for 177 yards.

The arrival of the Edinboro University product comes less than a week after running back William Stanback suffered a serious injury. The latter had ankle surgery on Tuesday and will miss a significant portion, if not all, of this season.
