Bulluck: Giants more 'solid' than Cards

Keith Bulluck's family ties to the New York area weren't the only reason the former Tennessee Titans linebacker signed with the Giants over the Arizona Cardinals.

"The Giants have more of a solid team, and they didn’t lose as many pieces of their puzzle," Bulluck told reporters during a conference call Monday. "Arizona just lost a Hall of Fame quarterback, Kurt Warner. They have someone that's not proven. I love their defense and their head coach and their coordinator. I got to meet with both of them and those guys were great."

The Cardinals visited with Bulluck last week amid reports that starting inside linebacker Gerald Hayes required back surgery. Paris Lenon, formerly of the St. Louis Rams, has the most experience among potential replacements.
