Keith Bulluck is coming home.
Adam Schein of FOX reports and PFT has confirmed that the longtime Titans linebacker and New York native has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the New York Giants. Bulluck can make up $2.5 million this season.
The deal came together after Bulluck worked out for the Giants last week and "blew them away" because he looked so good only seven months removed from ACL surgery.
The Cardinals also made a late push to sign Bulluck after Gerald Hayes' recent surgery, but the lure of New York was too difficult for Bulluck to avoid. Bulluck was All State at Clarkstown High School in nearby New City
Bulluck played on the weak side in Tennessee; that's where Michael Boley lines up in New York. Clint Sintim plays on the strong side and middle linebacker is wide open.
The Giants may be looking for Bulluck to help fill a leadership void in New York, while slowly working into the mix as he recovers from surgery.
