Report: Giants to Sign LB Keith Bulluck

Free agent linebacker Keith Bulluck is headed to the New York Giants.

Adam Schein of FOXSports.com and Sirius NFL Radio reports that free agent linebacker Keith Bulluck is headed to the New York Giants.

Terms of Bulluck's contract were not disclosed.

A native of Suffern, New York, Bulluck was a first-round pick (30th overall) out of Syracuse by the Tennessee Titans in 2000. Bulluck started 130 of 157 games during his ten seasons in Nashville, including a string of 127 consecutive starts that began late in the 2001 season and ended when Bulluck tore the ACL in his left knee in a December 20 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Bulluck has 1,056 tackles, 18 quarterback sacks, and 19 interceptions during his career, earning a trip to the Pro Bowl following the 2003 season.

If healthy, the 6-3, 235-pound Bulluck would add depth at weak-side linebacker behind Michael Boley, as well as leadership to a linebacking corps that has gotten younger in the last three years.

Update: Garafolo adds that Bulluck will play middle linebacker, where the Giants currently have the inexperienced Jonathan Goff running with the 1s after Antonio Pierce's retirement.

Bulluck had also drawn interest from the Detroit Lions, where Jim Schwartz, his former linebackers coach and defensive coordinator in Tennessee, is now the head coach.
