  • Stephen Tulloch

    The Lions released the MLB today. Last year he played in 16 games for the Lions and recorded 107 tackles 1 forced fumble and 1 sack. He is 31 and a native Miamian. We don't have any credible depth behind Kiko Alonso at MLB. I think signing Tulloch for the vets minimum would be a good move to provide some depth to our LB corps.

    That would be a good move although I have great hopes for our rookie UDFA. Hoping they are not poached and stash them away.
    The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

        My understanding was that the Lions were keeping him on a string over his knee and ankle injuries. Did he fail his physical as the reason for being released?

          Cap hit my friend...if they released him in May they would be on the hook...now that the time has passed the Lions wouldn't be responsible for this contract, if Steven filed a suit against them.

          Early rumors are that he will be signing with the Eagles - based on connection with Jim Schwartz

            I like that he is experienced manning the middle in the wide 9 behind Ndamukong. He would also allow Alonso to move outside in nickel packages and be a cover LB. This would be a solid signing.

              Bring him to Miami. He has unit concerns so he will fit fit in. Every other meeting is help in a room full of ice tubs so Tullock will like it in Davie.

                They should give him a look. His experience would be worth signing him if they can get him cheap.
                Can we sign this guy?

                    Hey Aqua,
                    As long as we are poaching areas of the Lions strengths, we're okay with it, right?

                    The Lions waited for Tulloch to pass his physical and then released him. He recorded 100+ tackles every season since 2009 except for one in which he tore his ACL while celebrating a sack of Rodgers in 2014. He had surgery this off-season on, what I believe to be, an elbow.
                    The Lions believe he's lost too much lateral mobility which makes him a liability in coverage but can still be a force as a two down run stuffer. Is that enough to try to make room fir him?

                    Yes especially since we don't have any credible depth in our LB corps. He could be used in sub packages also for instance if we want to load up to stuff the run he can play MLB in that role and Alonso can play the SAM LB on a play like that. Also if Alonso were to get hurt we would then have a decent run stuffing LB behind him. I really don't see any downside to signing him since he won't cost that much and if he is not good enough to make the 53 man roster then we have better depth than we thought.

                      Would be interesting to see if other known names drop after final cuts maybe due to rookies performing above expectations and able to take over higher prices veterans.

                        I watched Tulloch several years here in Tennessee. A fine player, head on straight. Schwartz makes sense as a destination. As he's not signed as yet by the Fins, I'd think it's not happening. I guess the feeling is that should Alonso go down, Misi would be plugged in. To me, that's the old cliche, "repeating the same mistake over and over...etc."

                        BTW, Kel2.2, I am ashamed to admit I clicked on "your" Avatar, praying it would display...ahem, ENLARGE to a proportion deserving of it's content. Unfortunately, it swelled only a tiny bit...again, unfortunately I know THAT feeling all too well. It's a bee-yatch being OLD.

                          lol,, yeah, i'd be a liar if i said i hadn't done the same thing a time or two in regards to kel's avatars...It might say 'rookie' under his name but his avatar is almost always 'ALL-PRO'!!! Also, totally agree on the being old thing..I've aged like a fine wine, unfortunately all it means is that i'm fermented and bitter.......
