Lions DT Tyrunn Walker is expected to get the first crack at the starting job next to Haloti Ngata.
After losing both Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley and choosing not to re-sign C.J. Mosley, the Lions acquired Ngata and Walker before spending a fourth-round pick on Gabe Wright at defensive tackle. Walker was a role player for the Saints, but flashed in limited snaps. The Lions are banking on Walker and second-year DT Caraun Reid to take steps forward on the interior. May 20 - 8:15 AM

Lions signed DT Tyrunn Walker, formerly of the Saints, to a one-year contract.

Walker wasn't tendered by the Saints as a restricted free agent and is going to a team that should allow him more opportunities. Across 306 snaps last season, 25-year-old Walker earned positive marks as a pass rusher and in run defense.

The Saints aren't expected to tender an offer to restricted free agent DL Tyrunn Walker.

The tender would cost about $1.54 million, money the Saints don't currently have. They'd like to have the versatile reserve lineman back at a cheaper rate, but he'll be free to test the market. Walker, 25, played 306 snaps last season, earning positive marks for his pass rush and run defense from PFF.
Mar 6 - 8:32 AM

Saints DE Tyrunn Walker was carted to the locker room with a left leg injury in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Falcons.

The second-year undrafted free agent limped off the field, but had to be carted once he reached the sideline. He's almost certainly done for the day. Walker is just a reserve, but it's bad news for a Saints' front seven that's already decimated by injury.
