Former Vol Alex Bullard Released By Detroit Lions

Former Tennessee Volunteers offensive lineman Alex Bullard was released by the Detroiot Lions on Saturday afternoon.

Bullard was among the first wave of players cut by Detroit.

The release of Bullard, who was signed by the Lions as an undrafted free agent after the NFL Draft in May, means that only four of Tennessee’s 2013 starting offensive linemen are still present on NFL rosters.

Ja’Wuan James, Zach Fulton and possibly Antonio “Tiny” Richardson have likely secured their spots on their respective teams’ 53-man rosters.

Center James Stone, who was signed by the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent, is still on the Falcons’ roster bubble.

As far as Bullard goes, I think he’ll latch on to a practice squad somewhere. He has good technique, but his lack of quickness was ultimately what prevented him from making the Lions’ 53-man roster.

Bullard started his career at Notre Dame, where he saw limited action. He then transferred to Tennessee where he went on to start 35 career games in three seasons.
