Former Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck grew up in New City of Rockland County and attended Clarkstown North High. So coming to the Giants as opposed to, say, the Detroit Lions as a veteran free agent would certainly be more appealing to him.
He said as much on Sirius Radio to hosts Adam Schein and Jim Miller. But that may just be wishful thinking on his part. Right now, the Lions have an opening at weakside linebacker. And while the Giants would appear to have spots ripe for the taking in the middle and on the strongside, one would certainly wonder if they'd have any interest in bringing in a 33-year-old just six months out of ACL surgery.
He might fit better with the Lions, whose coach, Jim Schwartz, loves Bullock from Schwartz' days as the Titans' defensive coordinator. But Bulluck, who said he's not going to make any free agent visits for the next couple of weeks, mentioned the Giants in particular as a potential landing spot.
"The New York Giants is what's up," Bulluck said. "I'll stay right here (in Rockland County). I'm right down the turnpike."
But he said Detroit and the Titans are also possible. Just as well. It'd be hard to believe the Giants would be interested in old, damaged goods when they seem to be committed to developing youngsters like Jonathan Goff, Phillip Dillard, Clint Sintim, and Bryan Kehl in the middle and strong side.
