  • Lions' Tracy Walker: Remains in Detroit

    Walker agreed to a three-year, $25 million contract with the Lions on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Walker totaled 108 tackles, six pass deflections, one sack and one interception across 15 appearances last season. He finished the campaign with a bang, notching a career-high 14 tackles and an interception during a Week 18 win over the Packers. He'll stick with the franchise that drafted him in the third round of the 2018 Draft.

  • Lions' Tracy Walker: Strong production in 2021

    Walker recorded 108 tackles, one sack, six pass breakups and one interception over 15 games in 2021.

    Walker finished the season with a bang in Week 18 against Green Bay, netting a career-high 14 tackles plus an interception en route to NFL Defensive Player of the Week honors. More importantly, he put a bow on a season that showed the Lions' new regime that Walker's "down" 2020 season was at least partly a product of the deficiencies of ex-head coach Matt Patricia. In fact, general manager Brad Holmes praised Walker's 2021 campaign during Tuesday's end-of-season press conference and went on to suggest that Detroit will make a strong effort to retain Walker in unrestricted free agency this offseason, per Justin Rogers of The Detroit News.

  • Lions' Tracy Walker: Not on injury report

    Walker (illness) wasn't listed on the injury report for Wednesday's practice session.

    Walker missed the last two games after he tested positive for COVID-19, but it appears as though he'll be back in action for Sunday's matchup against Atlanta. He should serve as the Lions' starting free safety in Week 16.

  • Lions' Tracy Walker: Won't play Sunday

    The Lions downgraded Walker (illness) from questionable to out ahead of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Detroit brought Walker back from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, but the Lions evidently had some reservations about his availability, given that he took a questionable tag into the weekend. Walker remains on the active roster and still appears to be asymptomatic of the virus, but Detroit may want to give him some more recovery time after he sat out last week's loss to the Broncos and didn't practice in any capacity Week 15. While Walker is out for another game, look for Will Harris and Dean Marlowe to serve as Detroit's starting safety tandem.
