Veteran linebacker Keith Bulluck expresses interest in playing for the Patriots

Patriots fans, what do you think of Keith Bulluck? Because it sounds like he has some interest in playing in New England. The veteran middle linebacker was on NFL Radio’s Blitz show on Monday on Sirius XM radio with Adam Schein and said he has three teams he’s interested in playing for — the Patriots, Lions and Giants.
The 34-year-old Bulluck, who has 1,108 tackles in 11 seasons in the NFL, was selected in the 2000 draft 30th overall by Tennessee and spent 10 seasons with the Titans. He signed a one-year deal with the Giants prior to the start of the 2010 season, and had 31 tackles and two interceptions in 13 games last season with New York, but was clearly disappointed by his Giants’ experience, saying he wanted a bigger role with whoever he played with in 2011 or he would call it a career.
“(A full-time role) is the only way I’m playing football next year,” Bullock told the Newark Star-Ledger on Jan. 3. This is the first time I’ve ever, since my rookie year and my second year in the league, come on and off the field. I’m someone that needs to be on the field all the time. That’s just how I feel, so yeah, that’s the only way I’d play football next year.”
