Bulluck keeping his options open

There’s little doubt that LB Keith Bulluck really wants a job. But would he go as far as playing for the Detroit Lions? Well, maybe he doesn’t want a job that bad.

Bulluck, interviewed by Sirius NFL Radio on Thursday, said he’d like to play for the New York Giants, but he also said he could persuaded to return to Tennessee – the only place he’s ever played and where he’s recorded at least 125 tackles five times this decade. But he’s coming off ACL surgery, and though he could return by the first week of the NFL game schedule, he’s also 33 years old.

Sure, he could be ready to play by September, but he likely wouldn’t be 100 percent until a few months into the season. He’s coming off a 108-tackle season in just 14 games, but is he worth the risk?

The Lions, though, could be looking (along with the Titans, for the record) for somebody just like him. One positive aspect about playing for the Lions: he’d be reunited with former Tennessee defensive coordinator and current head coach Jim Schwartz.

"I'm very familiar with their system and very familiar with those people,” Bulluck said in his interview. “That coaching staff, I know they're working to go in the right direction at Detroit. How many wins did they have last year? I'll tell you, (the Lions) are one of those teams that's up-and-coming. But honestly, to be 100 percent honest, I want to play for a championship. If it comes down to it, if my option is to go to Detroit, yeah, all right, that's what we gotta do. Because I'm gonna play football, regardless.’’

To answer his question, the Lions won two games last year - a huge improvement over their zero-win 2008.

Why would the Lions want him. So he'll play for the Lions if no one else wants him, they don't need a player with that attitude on the field or in their locker room. The Lions are better off without Bullock.
