Keith Bulluck (linebacker) formerly of the Tennessee Titans will be joining the NY Giants this season; the signing of Bulluck adds the veteran leadership that was lacking in the Giants linebacker group. In Bulluck the Giants are getting an every down linebacker that can stop the run and defend the pass; just ask Dustin Keller as Bulluck locked him down last year when the Titans came to NY to play the NY Jets.
Since the retirement of Antonio Pierce the Giants lacked a leader with experience on defense; Keith Bulluck instantly fills that need with 10 years of experience. Bulluck is one of the most underrated linebackers in the league; he has quietly put together a strong resume that has not been seen in NYC since the days of Lawrence Taylor, Carl Banks and Harry Carson. Speaking of Harry Carson there is no better player than Keith Bulluck that is worthy of wearing the #53 for the NY Giants.
As for his knee; Bulluck has fully recovered from the ACL tear he suffered late last year; he is fully confident that the knee is where it needs to be. Throughout his career Bulluck has been a mainstay in the starting lineup and there is no reason to believe that he will not return to that level of play that made him a Pro-Bowl linebacker.
Last but least it is unfortunate that Bulluck was not able to finish his career with the Titans; the fairy tale ending would have been Keith Bulluck finishing his career in Nashville. This is business and the Titans chose to go in a different direction; personally speaking much respect to the city of Nashville and all of the Titans fans!!
Overall good move by the G-men; the defense will be looking to bounce back from last years disappointing season. The signing of Antrel Rolle and now Bulluck is a step in the right direction. The pressure is on this year for the Giants as the NY Jets made a lot of moves in an attempt to become the top dawg in NY; the pressure is on and I can’t wait for the season to start.
