Another now-former Lions defensive lineman has found a new home. Tyrunn Walker, who had been with the club the last two years, has signed with the Rams according to Adam Schefter. Walker started a chunk of games this year for Detroit but did not have the big season many anticipated. Once the Lions signed Akeem Spence in free agency, it became pretty clear the Lions were moving on from Walker. Off the field, Walker is very involved in helping his hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana.
