Although free agency hasn’t started yet, once the NFL lockout comes to an end it sounds like there may be one player who could potentially be in contention for a job here in Foxboro if the front office decides he could fit into their scheme.
Former Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck apparently has three teams he’s interested in playing for, and said during the NFL Radio’s Blitz show on Monday on Sirius XM radio with Adam Schein that his choices could include a return to the Titans, playing in Detroit, or potentially joining Bill Belichick in Foxboro.
Bulluck spent 10-years in Tennessee after being drafted in 2000, and spent last year in New York where he played in a diminished role. The 34-year old linebacker has amassed 1108 tackles during his 11-year career, and said during the interview that New York is still his top choice – although New England is “veteran friendly” and could be a good fit.
“First and foremost, New York because they gave me an opportunity to come and continue my career, really get healthy, where I needed to be,” Bulluck said when asked about his preferred landing spots in an interview today on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “Detroit. I like what Schwartz is doing up there. Last year, I wasn’t prepared physically to play and do the things that they would need me to do, but now I feel I am. New England is always veteran-friendly, and I know, every year, they’re in contention of winning.
“Like I say, I want to win, really. At this point in my career, financially, me and my family are fine. But I definitely would like to be in a position to play myself into maybe possibly being one of the top-paid linebackers in the league again. Definitely one of the top players in the league.”
