Though it took several weeks for the Giants to bring in former Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck for a look and eventually sign him to play middle linebacker, Bulluck had the organization in mind since last year.
He was more than a little peeved that the Titans hadn't made an effort to sign him to an extension in 2008. And even in 2009, despite having three interceptions and 108 tackles in 14 games, Tennessee indicated no interest in having him back. So Bulluck had long been considering the big picture.
"That gave me a great indication that I wasn't going to come back as a Titan," Bulluck said. "When I was having the year I was having and they still didn't give an indication that they were going to re-sign me, the big picture came in my head. So I'd say I started considering them last year."
