Broncos reportedly request to interview Aaron Glenn for head coach vacancy

Photo by Rey Del Rio/ It didn’t take long for someone to reach out to Aaron Glenn for a head coaching opportunity.

Tracy Walker: ‘I don’t think we give enough credit to Dan Campbell’

Photo by Mike Mulholland/ Tracy Walker couldn’t have been more clear and effusive in his praise for the Detroit Lions coaching staff. After last year’s season finale, Tracy Walker looked exhausted. It was a tough year for him both on and off the field. He had to deal with the very public death of his cousin, respond to being away from his newborn child, and it’s clear he didn’t see eye-to-eye with a coaching staff that seemed to stunt his growth as a player. That December, Walker was asked if how the coaching staff utilized him was responsible for some of the...

Tracy Walker wants to be part of Lions’ foundation, but free agency out of his control

Billy Hardiman-USA TODAY Sports Tracy Walker seems very happy in Detroit, but he admitted the free agency process will be controlled by his agents and the front office. Before Tracy Walker was even asked about his impending free agency later this year, he sure sounded like a player that wanted to be part of the Detroit Lions’ future. “My main objective right now is to continue to grow with this coaching staff, continue to grow with this group of guys I’ve got surrounding me, and just continue to try to build a foundation,” Walker said. “One thing I’ve been...

Re-signing Tracy Walker is a priority to Aaron Glenn

Photo by Scott W. Grau/Icon Sportswire via The Lions defensive coordinator has seen growth in Walker as a player, leader and play-maker this season.

But the Lions face an arguably more pressing decision with another soon-to-be free agent defender. Safety Tracy Walker is in the final year of his rookie...
