The NFL offseason is a time of many emotions.
For many players, it has the potential for them to join a new team, earn more money, and get a fresh start.
This is also a bittersweet time for fans of a particular team, as one of their favorite players could be on the move.
Cleveland Browns fans have reacted accordingly to today’s news about one of the team’s linebackers.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Anthony Walker is slated to meet with the Washington Commanders.

Walker had a great 2021 season for the Browns and was slated for another dominant year in 2022 before suffering a quadriceps injury.
With the potential for Walker to be on the move, possibly to the Commanders, fans across the NFL expressed their opinions on the situation.

As this fan indicates, he would hate to see Walker go, effectively joining another team.
While the Commanders aren’t in the AFC, losing a player like Walker is never easy.
The Browns do have the opportunity to re-sign Walker, a move that this fan believes the team should make.
@Browns WHAT ARE WE DOING SIGN HIM

Walker’s role on the team was valuable when he was fully healthy.
Nooooo stay in CLE @__AWalkJr

Many fans have continued to bang the drum for the Browns to keep Walker around.
For as many Browns fans that are nervous about the potential for Walker leaving, there are an equal number of excited Commanders fans.
By adding Walker, the Commanders could continue to grow their roster, in an increasingly difficult NFC East.
Wherever Walker ends up remains to be seen.

If it’s any indication by this fan, this news can’t come soon enough, assuming Walker does sign with the Commanders.
