Lions continue the Matt Millen cleanup

Daniel Bullocks was gunning for the chance to be a starting safety for the Detroit Lions alongside talented second-year player Louis Delmas this season. Now, he’s looking for work.

The Lions unloaded Bullocks today, getting rid of the last of the draft picks from the Matt Millen era from 2002 to 2006, according to the Detroit News. That’s an incredible waste of many very high draft picks, and a prime reason why Jim Schwartz has been having to work so hard to climb his way out of the abyss in Motown.

Bullocks was a second-round pick in 2006 but he was hampered by knee problems. Per the report, he had a torn ACL and microfracture surgery. But the talk as recently as May was that he was in position to nail down a starting job.

Now, Bullocks will have to look for work at a time of year when jobs are difficult to come by and the Lions will sort through some alternative options that include Ko Simpson, C.C. Brown, Marvin White and Marquand Manuel. None of those names inspire a ton of confidence either, do they?
