EXCLUSIVE WATCH: Stephen Tulloch talks future with Lions on The Nine

Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch was the leading tackler for the Lions last season, but it's been no secret this offseason that he isn't part of  the Lions future as they've been trying to trade him. Plus he's estimated to have a 7.3 million dollar cap hit this season according to overthecap.com.  

He is currently on the roster, but hasn't been to organized team activities and the media hasn't seen him at the facility in Allen Park.  General Manager Bob Quinn wouldn't give an update on the 31-year-old linebacker's situation last Monday.

Tulloch was on FOX 2's morning show "The Nine" Thursday to talk about a new children's book he has co-authored. Meanwhile, his teammates were on the field for their final organized team activity. While on The Nine, though, he briefly discussed his future in Detroit.

"We're working some things out. Hopefully in the next couple days we can kind of come to meeting grounds with things and figure out what we're going to do," he said. "My agent and the team are handling some things, working some things out. Hopefully in the next couple days we can kind of finalize some things."

When Deena Centofanti asked him what his gut feeling is, he said it's to just wait and find out.
