Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said Tuesday that Marc Bulger remains a member of the team, despite a report that the quarterback cleaned out his locker because he doesn’t expect to return.
Spagnuolo said he’s still evaluating the Rams’ QB situation and that he has a good feel for Bulger, Kyle Boller and Keith Null because all three played last season.
“There’s still a long ways to go here,” Spagnuolo said of his offseason evaluations.
Spagnuolo’s comments came just hours after St. Louis sports writer and radio host Howard Balzer posted on his Twitter page that he had been told Bulger didn’t expect to be a Ram in 2010.
Bulger received a six-year, $65 million contract extension in 2007, but he has struggled since signing the deal. He has passer ratings of 70.3, 71.4 and 70.7, respectively, in the last three seasons and missed 11 games because of injuries.
Bulger has thrown for 22,814 yards and 122 touchdowns with 93 interceptions during his nine-year NFL career. However, he hasn’t posted a season with more TD passes than interceptions since 2006.
