Entering his fourth season, safety Tracy Walker is a young player who Detroit Lions fans have high hopes for in 2021. After a promising beginning making plays from a high alignment, Walker was pushed into uncomfortable spots on the field by the previous coaching staff. Now he is back to the assignments he feels best suited to under the new defensive staff, and is ready to destroy some kneecaps. On Friday morning, Walker joined the crew of NFL Network’s Good Morning Football for a six minute segment that was subsequently posted online.

In the interview, former Lions receiver Nate Burleson asked Walker about the up-downs to start training camp and changes in the general atmosphere in the locker room. Kyle Brandt said it looks like a lot of fun and then asked about the most memorable moment so far. To that, Walker said the coach joining in for the up-downs made a huge impression on the players.

Kay Adams asked about impressions of new quarterback Jared Goff and Mike Garafalo commented on the collective experience and playing accomplishments of the new Lions coaching staff. To cap the segment off, it came back around to Adams asking how becoming a new father has changed his perspective. Just a really nice discussion with the GMFB hosts and a jersey-repping gag at Nate Burleson’s expense, so be sure to check it out.
