Bully for Bulluck

The New York Giants made a significant move on the eve of training camp, adding former Titans LB Keith Bulluck. Bulluck, a former All-Pro, spent the first 10 years of his career in Tennessee. Below are some thoughts on the move; you can see how it compares to other signings in July in a post later this week.

Bulluck had a great career in Tennessee, but just as he approached free agency a late-season knee injury slowed his recruitment. Now he moves to New York, where he will be counted on to replace Antonio Pierce at middle linebacker. Bulluck played on the outside in Tennessee, and although he’s not huge he was a big-time play maker in the passing game. Now Bulluck will have to be a bit more disciplined to help center a Giants defense that fell apart last year. Still, given the market, Bulluck was the best option available for the Giants, and if he returns to his former Pro Bowl level or anything near it, he’ll be a huge addition. It’s worth a one-year, $2.5 million risk for a team that fancies itself a contender.
