News: Walls has agreed to terms with the Lions, ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports.
Impact: The contract is a one-year, minimum-salary deal. Through five seasons in the league, the undrafted Notre Dame product has accrued 75 tackles (11 on special teams), as well as 22 pass breakups and three picks across 54 games, including 16 starts. In 2011, Walls spent his rookie year with Atlanta, and then joined the Jets the following season and looked to be an ascending talent. However, the Jets welcomed back CB Darrelle Revis in 2015 and Walls didn't manage a single start throughout the entire campaign. Subsequently, Walls' production fell off a cliff, and the Jets decided against keeping him in the fold. Now with the Lions, he'll compete for a starting gig following the retirement of Rashean Mathis, though Walls will likely prove to merely be a depth signing and special teams contributor.
