Free agent SS Melvin Bullitt says he's received feelers from the Chiefs and Vikings.
Although Bullitt is at Broadcast Boot Camp this week, he expects to continue his playing career. Teams may be skeptical that Bullitt's shoulder is healthy after he was released with a failed physical designation in March. The Chiefs can probably be ruled out after signing Abram Elam earlier this month. Tue, Jun 19, 2012 01:56:00 PM

The Colts released SS Melvin Bullitt with a "failed physical" designation late last week.

Sirius XM Radio's Adam Caplan suggests Bullitt may not be recovered yet from the shoulder injury that cost him all but two games in 2011 and four games in 2010. Bullitt was once one of the most productive safeties in the league. Now at age 27, he may have to settle for a minimum deal to stay in the NFL.

Colts released SS Melvin Bullitt.

Bullitt, 27, was due a $2.4 million salary. He missed all but two games due to a right shoulder injury last season, and all but four games in 2010 due to another shoulder problem. The Colts have Joe Lefeged, Antoine Bethea, David Caldwell, and three more no-name safeties at the position. Look for Bullitt's market value to be pretty minimal as an unrestricted free agent.

Colts placed SS Melvin Bullitt on injured reserve with a right shoulder injury, ending his season.

The Colts started David Caldwell at strong safety in Week 3, but he rotated with rookie Joe Lefeged. Lefeged played more snaps, and both players finished with two tackles. Bullitt, 26, signed a new three-year contract just before training camp, but has performed poorly on the field and this right shoulder injury is recurring. The team may have to consider cutting ties next year.

The Colts signed S Stevie Brown this week because SS Melvin Bullitt is dealing with an undisclosed injury.

Bullitt was also terrible in last week's loss to the Browns, getting burnt in coverage and missing tackles all over the field. "Melvin has a bit of an issue that he’s dealing with that we’re just not quite certain where he is at this point," coach Jim Caldwell said. "That’s the reason Steve Brown is here."
Wed, Sep 21, 2011 02:42:00 PM

Colts agreed to terms with SS Melvin Bullitt on a three-year contract.

Bullitt has put up some big numbers in the past, but he's a replacement-level safety who missed all but four games last season with a serious shoulder injury. The Colts will probably pencil Bullitt in as the heir apparent to Bob Sanders, who signed with San Diego before the lockout. Target Bullitt in IDP leagues, but he won't be an impact player in Indianapolis.
Wed, Jul 27, 2011 03:54:00 PM

Free agent SS Melvin Bullitt estimated to an Indianapolis radio station that his chances of re-signing with the Colts are "50-50."

Recent comments from Bullitt suggested he was willing to back off his insistence of a long-term deal. "I never changed my stance on it," said Bullitt. "I want to be in Indianapolis, but it's going to be unrealistic for me to come back unless I have a long-term deal." Bullitt is skeptical that the Colts will commit to him in free agency.
Thu, Jul 7, 2011 02:03:00 PM

After saying earlier this offseason he couldn't see himself being back in Indianapolis without a long-term deal, free agent SS Melvin Bullitt has softened his stance.

"I want to play in Indy again," Bullitt said. "That's what I'm planning on. But the reality is I'm not signed with anyone." Bullitt also emphasized his surgically repaired shoulder is 100 percent. "I'm probably the strongest I've been in two years."
Mon, Jul 4, 2011 10:58:00 AM

Colts SS Melvin Bullitt is fully recovered from the shoulder surgery that kept him out of the final 13 games of last season.

The Colts extended a restricted free agent tender to the four-year veteran, but that won't hold up if a new CBA passes. "I can't see myself coming back (to the Colts) other than with a long-term contract," said Bullitt. "Just to be quite honest, it's business."
Wed, Mar 23, 2011 10:51:00 AM

Colts placed SS Melvin Bullitt (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Bullitt suffered a broken bone in his right shoulder in Week 4 while filling in for Bob Sanders. With both strong safeties out, the Colts' leaky secondary will continue to be a matchup for fantasy leaguers to exploit. A free agent in 2011, Bullitt could be brought back with Sanders' Indy career in question.
Tue, Oct 5, 2010 06:12:00 PM

Colts SS Melvin Bullitt is done for the season due to a broken bone in his right shoulder, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

It's terrible news for the Colts, who are already without Bob Sanders for likely the entire year. DaJuan Morgan, whom they picked up off the scrap heap last month after Kansas City cut him, now figures to slide into a starting role.
Tue, Oct 5, 2010 09:05:00 AM

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Colts S Melvin Bullitt "felt a tear in his right shoulder" Week 4 against Jacksonville.

Bullitt underwent an MRI Monday, and the results are still unknown. The fact that Bullitt felt a tear is not a good sign, especially since he underwent offseason surgery on the same shoulder. With Bob Sanders (biceps) already out indefinitely, the loss of Bullitt for an extended period of time would be detrimental to the Colts' secondary.
Mon, Oct 4, 2010 08:33:00 PM

Melvin Bullitt left Sunday's loss to the Jaguars in the third quarter with a shoulder injury and did not return.

This is a major concern for the Colts as the injury is to the same shoulder that Bullitt had offseason surgery on. With Bob Sanders (biceps) out indefinitely, DaJuan Morgan is going to have a lot of pressure on him. Bullitt is headed for tests to determine the severity of his apparent aggravation.
Mon, Oct 4, 2010 09:34:00 AM

Colts SS Melvin Bullitt will come off the bench behind Bob Sanders on Sunday.

Bullitt has been a tremendous fill-in for Sanders over the last two years, but the 2007 Defensive Player of the Year is now healthy and has his job back. Bullitt will see action in three-safety sets and will be ready when Sanders inevitably gets hurt, but for now he's looking at around 15 snaps a game.
Wed, Sep 8, 2010 09:46:00 AM

Colts re-signed restricted free agent SS Melvin Bullitt to a one-year, $1.684 million contract.

The 25-year-old was a liability in pass coverage at times last season, but is good enough in run support that the Colts have only barely missed Bob Sanders when Bullitt has been forced into every-down duty over the past few years. Sanders is due back from his knee injuries and will retake his starting job in 2010, but Bullitt should stay active in three-safety sets.
