Lions DT Tyrunn Walker loves the bull rush: 'It works for me, man'

Defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker has been trying to perfect his bull rush for a while now.  Before signing with the Detroit Lions in free agency this offseason, Walker worked with New Orleans Saints defensive line coach Bill Johnson on the move. Since then, Lions defensive line coach Kris Kocurek has helped him spice it up. "Coach Johnson was great at showing me the bull," Walker...

WATCH: Detroit Lions Defensive Linemen Ezekial Ansah and Tyrunn Walker Swallow Robert Griffin III

Poor RG3. He very well may be the best quarterback in the NFL, but if he doesn't ever get any time to prove it no one other than him will ever know it. The Detroit Lions certainly were not going to give him much time to do so Thursday night during preseason action.If he wasn't getting paid so much more than me I'd almost feel sorry for him.Read more »

Saints letting Tyrunn Walker test market

This below makes sense because the minimum tender is around $1.5 million and there’s no way the Saints can afford to pay a reserve lineman that much. Losing Walker would be a bummer, though. As an undrafted rookie he has exceeded expectations and has been a rare bright spot as a developing reserve. The guy can play inside, outside, rush the passer and play the run a little bit...

New Orleans Saints will likely avoid defensive tackle in draft

As we continue to analyze this year’s NFL draft, it looks like the New Orleans Saints will be avoiding the defensive tackle position…at least through the early rounds. The interior of the Saints’ defensive line was a strength this past year, and with Cam Jordan continuing to move towards his role as a more traditional 3-4 defensive end there is little need to draft a playmaker...
