In a recent interview with the Tennessean, Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck he believed the 2009 season will be his last with Tennessee.

When asked if he thought it would be his final season as a Titan, Bulluck said the signs are pointing to it, but he isn't discouraged.

“I think so, yeah,” Bulluck said. “And I have no reason to believe that it isn’t. But I don’t look at it as something that makes me sad, I really don’t. I have seen great players come here and go, players you’d think would finish their careers here and didn’t."

Bulluck's contract is counting $7.85 million against the Titans' salary cap this season. He led the Titans with 98 tackles in 2008.

The 32-year-old linebacker knows that his departure wouldn't be a shot at him from the team.

“But I know how things work, and know it isn’t personal," Bulluck said. "The circumstances for me this year are different. I am kind of approaching this year like it’s my senior year in college.’’

However, if Bulluck stays at his productive pace and signs a deal that keeps the Titans' salary in mind, it wouldn't be a shock to see the heart of the defense return in Tennessee.
