Lions Waive Daniel Bullocks, Sign Robert Francois

The Lions have put safety Daniel Bullocks on the waived/injured list.  That means he has been waived, ending speculation over what Martin Mayhew would decide to do with the injured safety. 

Bullocks' knee that was surgically repaired a couple years ago had been bothering him all training camp, and it had been awhile since he practiced.  Speculation originally suggested that he was destined for the injured reserve, but the Lions decided to simply waive him.  With the safety position looking good as far as depth goes, the Lions obviously felt they were in good enough shape to open a spot on the roster.

That open roster spot went to linebacker Robert Francois, who was released by the Vikings to make room for Brett Favre.
