Transition co-founder Keith Bulluck is among the 103 modern era nominees in the 2016 Pro Football Hall of Fame class. Players five years retired are eligible for nomination. The list will next be trimmed to 25 semifinalist by selectors.
Bulluck was drafted by the Tennessee Titans 30th overall in the 2000 NFL Draft after a standout career at Syracuse University. He was a three time NFL All-Pro (2002, 2003, 2007) and made the Pro Bowl in 2003. Keith led the Titans in tackles six times. In 2004 he led the NFL in tackles with 152. In 2007, he recorded a Titans record five interceptions for a linebacker. An athletic and versatile player, as well as locker room leader, Bulluck finished his career with 21 interceptions and 18 sacks.
After spending 10 years in Tennessee, Bulluck signed a one-year free agent contract with his hometown New York Giants after sustaining an ACL injury 7-months prior. He retired a year later, in 2012, as a member of the Titans.
Bulluck joins, among others, former Titans teammates Steve McNair, Eddie George, Kevin Mawae and Gary Anderson; as well as fellow Syracuse alumni Anderson, Marvin Harrison and Daryl Johnston.
