Career NFL statistics

Josh Bullocks (born February 28, 1983) is an American football safety. He was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He is the identical twin of fellow NFL safety Daniel Bullocks.

He played college football at Nebraska. Bullocks has also been a member of the Chicago Bears and Oakland Raiders. In January 2015, he joined the Omaha Beef of Champions Indoor Football as an assistant coach.[1]

Early years

Bullocks attended Hixson High School[2] in Chattanooga, Tennessee, along with his brother Daniel from 1997-2001. Josh and Daniel were both multi-sport standouts participating in track and field, as well as excelling in football. Josh played running back throughout his high school career while Daniel played quarterback. The Bullocks brothers led the Hixson Wildcats to four consecutive TSSAA football playoff appearances. Josh and Daniel were heavily recruited by several NCAA Division I schools including the University of Tennessee before deciding to attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. They graduated in 2001.

College career

Bullocks played college football at Nebraska, where he started 28 games in three seasons. He had ten interceptions and 49 tackles in 2003, when he was a finalist to win the Jim Thorpe Award.

Professional career

New Orleans Saints

Bullocks was drafted by the New Orleans Saints and played four seasons with the team. During that time, he appeared in 62 games (49 starts) and recorded 256 tackles, one sack, six interceptions and 24 pass deflections.

Chicago Bears

An unrestricted free agent in the 2009 offseason, Bullocks signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears that included $525,000 in guaranteed money. The move put Bullocks in the same division as his twin brother, Daniel, who played for the Detroit Lions before being released in the 2010 offseason.

Oakland Raiders

The Raiders signed Bullocks on August 15, 2011 after Hiram Eugene suffered a serious hip injury in the pre-season opener. He was waived on August 30.
