Former UL Star Tracy Walker Has Big Game Against Bears
A former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun football standout had a big game on Sunday to open up his 2020 NFL season.
Detroit may have blown a 21-point fourth-quarter lead, but safety Tracy Walker still came up big for the Lions in their 27-23 season-opening loss to the Chicago Bears, recording a team-leading 9 tackles, including 8 solo stops, and two tackles for a loss.
Last season, Walker appeared in 13 games for the Lions, including 12 as a starter, compiling 103 total tackles and one interception.
In 2018, Walker, who played for the Cajuns from 2014-2017, had a solid rookie campaign for Detroit, after being selected by the Lions in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, compiling 21 tackles, to go along with an interception and two passes defended.
A native of Brunswick, Georgia, Walker compiled 97 tackles and two interceptions in 2017 as a senior at UL and finished his stellar collegiate career with 276 tackles and 8 interceptions over 50 games.
