    LB Bulluck Interested in Playing for Patriots?
    By: Ian Logue

    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....

    I don't really see where he fits - seems like strictly a 4-3 OLB.

    The Patriots really don't need any old linebackers. At this point he'd be Chad Brown 2.0, especially since he can't play 3-4 OLB.

    Bullock is a good smart football player. At the right price Bill Belichick will take every good smart football player he can get.

    how much quickness off the edge does he still have?...that would be my primary concern...he's got the All Pro pedigree..smart and tough...at the least he'd bring attitude to the position

    Bulluck has a total of 1/2 sack total during the last four years. Thats an average of 1/8 sack per year over the last four seasons. Not sure that is what we are looking for.

    At ILB, we are already stacked with Mayo,Spikes,Guyton, & Fletcher.

    Why can't somebody like Mathias Kiwanuka be saying this instead?

    I'd rather trade for a complete OLB with speed who can both stop the run and cover, like Manny Lawson. Or alternatively trade for Corwin Barwin.

    I like Lawson, however I just worry that he might be a little light too hold up on the outside. Kiwanuka, if he checks out medically, would be a nice fit.

    I too, think that Lawson has the potential to be coached up here, as Belichick would find a way to utilize his skills nicely. I would be on board with this idea, although I think some are leery of his somewhat under performing yrs in the league so far. I think it all depends on what you ask of him, and the surrounding environment, and I think both of those factors could be a plus in NE.

    He is restricted. I believe it was a 2nd round tender.

    I wanted Bulluck last year, not so much because he was going to join the team and be an all-pro but more of to mentor the younger players a la Alge Crumpler. We had too many 4th quarter let downs. This team needed some leadership.
