Tracy Walker Talks About Returning To Lions: “I Wouldn’t Mind”.
The Detroit Lions have some important decisions to make in the upcoming off-season, and one of the biggest will revolve around the safety of Tracy Walker.
Walker, a free agent, was commended for performing on the field for Detroit’s defense during the 2021 season. In secondary school, Walker has anchored the security position well over the past few seasons, and although he’s a free agent, he might have a desire to stay where he is.

In an interview with the media last week on DetroitLions.com, Walker was asked about his future prospects. As I said, he wants to stay in Detroit, but only if the team has him.
“I wouldn’t mind (that). I definitely see myself like I said before, I have to control what I can control. Everything can happen. I’m going out here, I’m giving it my all for these guys, the coaching staff. God willing, I’ll be here. If not, I’ll take my talents elsewhere, ”Walker told the media. “But I hope I’m here. At the end of the day, I have to control what I can control and what I live by. I take day after day every day and that is the bottom line.
Walker has grown into one of the Lions team leaders and is a player who has improved and delivered solid play. But how much impression did he make on the new employees? Besides, how much money does he want? That is the key point that will determine whether or not Walker will return in 2022.
At this point, however, it seems like there could be a reunion if the Lions are open to it after Walker’s response to the question.
Walker is nowhere near the only player to catch up from Detroit this off-season. The team has 28 upcoming free agents on its roster, and revenue is likely to continue since the last off-season when Brad Holmes took over as general manager. The team quickly moved on from many players, but others stayed in the roster as the team sorted things out on the field in 2022. Walker will be one of the most interesting cases on the team given his connection with previous employees. There are several players like Nick Williams, Da’Shawn Hand, Trey Flowers and others that the team could look to as a result.
After some ups and downs on the team, there is no question that Lions could look very different in 2022 than they are now. One of the players who might be on the go is Walker.
Walker’s career in Detroit has been solid since he was a third round draft pick in 2018. In his first season in the league, Walker made 21 tackles and 1 interception. From then on, however, he has only taken on a bigger role and managed to play a more prominent role in defending the team. In 2019, Walker recovered and had his best season so far with 103 tackles and 1 interception. Walker put up a total of 263 tackles, 2 sacks and 2 interceptions. Here is a look at some of the highlights:
Walker is a free agent in the 2022 off-season so it will be interesting to see if the Lions bring him back or not. He’s tough and has solid instincts so he’s a player who could adjust for the future if the team wants him back.
