The Patriots may pursue free agent DT Tyrunn Walker.

New England made Walker a three-year offer last offseason, but he opted for a one-year proposal from the Lions instead. Since, former Patriots executive Bob Quinn has taken over as the GM in Detroit. At this stage of the process, the Pats and Lions should be considered the favorites for Walker. Walker is a 26-year-old interior pass rusher who broke his fibula last October.

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.
