Lions waive safety Bullocks

Daniel Bullocks started 15 games for the Lions during their 0-16 season, but he may be through with the organization.

Bullocks has been waived/injured by the team because of a right knee issue.  He tore his ACL in the same knee in 2007, and was forced to miss the season.

The 40th overall pick of the 2006 draft, Bullocks started 22 of 31 career games with the Lions.  He will revert to injured reserve if no one claims him on waivers.  Considering his pedigree, a claim could be possible.

To fill Bullocks’ roster spot, the Lions claimed Robert Francois, the man cut to make room for Brett Favre in Minnesota.  No word if Francois rode shotgun in Jim Schwartz’s car on the way into the Lions facility.

    Can’t believe you didn’t point out that now only Sims is left from their 2006 draft. It explains a lot about last season.

    I don’t get the last part.
    Someone care to explain?

    Rosenthal wrote it, and he’s referring to Favre riding in Chilly’s car during Favrestock a few days ago.

    The last sentence is referencing the fact that Favre rode shotgun in Chilly’s car to Winter Park.

    Let me explain the ending of this story:
    1. Brett Favre was picked up by Brad Childress at the airport and Childress personally drove Favre (who rode shotgun) from the airport to the Vikings facility.
    2. To make room for Favre, the Vikings had to cut Robert Francois.
    3. The Lions signed Francois.
    4. In a attempt to tie Favre into as many stories as possible, Greg Rosenthal jokingly mentioned that he didn’t know if Francois got the Brett Favre treatment by the Lions new head coach.

    Colinito, it seemed like Favrestock wasy a few days ago, but reality is it was just yesterday. Several hundred stories on the same subject does distort the reality of time.

    Favre should ride the business end of a shotgun straight to hell. Bullocks was a joke. Hopefully Louis Delmas works out better.

    true that mlegue810

    Francois was riding Pistol, not shotgun.
    … oh Nevermind.

    Man, if you can’t make the Lion’s roster, you might as well be selling insurance.
