  • Daniel Bullocks waived

    Originally posted by Detroit Free Press
    The Detroit Lions placed safety Daniel Bullocks on the waived/injured list today because of a lingering knee problem, making him a free agent.


    Bullocks, a 2006 second-round draft pick, missed the ’07 season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered in an exhibition. He returned to play 16 games last year, starting 15, and was the Lions’ recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award in honor of his comeback.

    But the knee sidelined him in training camp this year, and he visited the surgeon who repaired it.

    “There’s nothing new with his knee,” coach Jim Schwartz said Aug. 11 after Bullocks visited the surgeon. “He had a significant knee injury that’s troublesome, and we’ve just got to find a way to push through that.”

    Schwartz said then that the Lions would “shut him down for a little while, and then sort of take it slow again with an eye toward getting him back on the field.” He said it was too early to plan on being without him.

    Asked Monday how long the Lions could wait before making a decision, general manager Martin Mayhew said: “I really can’t tell you that. We have to make them as we have to make them, and we haven’t had to make a decision on him just yet, so we haven’t.”
    Well now there's even less safety depth and unless Henry moves to safety, Marquand Manuel will probably start. Awesome. Also, the 2006 draft sucks.

    Anyways, what about Kalvin Pearson and Louis Delmas at Safety?

        Well Pearson isn't a good starting safety so...

          I know it's hind-sight, but we signed former MSU S Otis Wiley in April (after the draft) and then cut him. Wikipidia said he failed his Lion's physical and nothing more? Is this guy still in the league? He could help us now, assuming it was the knee that failed him ... 4 months ago ... maybe he is healthy now and could fill a void.
          Eric Berry or Taylor Mays in 2010!!! (kidding ... gulp)

            The lack of depth is scary...

            Could you imagine if Marinelli was still coaching we would be signing John Lynch right now...

                  From Kowalski at MLive:

                  In five consecutive years of drafting, from 2002 to '06, the Lions selected a total of 39 players, and only two remain -- starting linebacker Ernie Sims ('06) and backup cornerback Keith Smith ('04).

                    They did get picks out of Roy Williams though, including Brandon Pettigrew.
                    Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.

                      The only impact player from the 2007 class is Calvin Johnson, so it's a string of suck.

                        Anthony Henry really should move to Safety. His corner skills have diminished. He was our worst corner last year. He plays such soft zone coverage and gets beat in man. His best technique is bumping guys off of their routes to disrupt timing. He's physical, but he gets hurt a lot, so it's a double edged sword. If he's completely healthy and in shape though, I can see him being a decent safety.

                          Chances are, he will.

                          THe Lions have some depth at CB, albeit not top notch. We have a bunch of #3 CB's after Buchanon.

                              You mean a few #3 CB's, Buchanon, and the demigod that is Eric King, right?
