Witherspoon Working To Replace Keith Bulluck

Sounds like LB Will Witherspoon is ready to take over for Keith Bulluck as the teams leader at the LB spot:

Titans linebacker Will Witherspoon is trying to integrate himself into the scheme and replace Keith Bulluck, one of the team’s most productive and popular players of recent years. The crash course continues this week, when Titans veterans come together for the second round of this season’s “organized team activities,” which will continue through June. The key is for him to be an effective replacement for Bulluck. A first-round pick in 2000, Bulluck missed only three games in 10 seasons with Tennessee, and as a starting linebacker for the past eight, he averaged a little more than 123 tackles per season. “Everybody knows what kinds of players those guys are, what they brought to this team and how long they’d been here,” Witherspoon said. “Those guys were well-established here. For them not to be here is a change. I’ve been through a couple little shifts like that myself, to see entrenched players come and go. The next guy has to come in and step up. That’s part of what I plan on doing.”
