Now that the ground has stopped rolling here in Southern California (no joke; we’re hearing 6.9 somewhere in Mexicali), the unshaken members of the NFL newsroom can continue on with football. More specifically, the future of Marc Bulger (No, there’s no connection, other than it was what I was doing at the time).
While Bulger remains on the Rams’ roster and showed up for offseason workouts, there’s a lot of chatter that his career in St. Louis could end if Sam Bradford is the top overall pick in the draft. Certainly, with A.J. Feeley also on the roster, Bulger’s $8.5 million salary plays a factor.
If that happens, Bulger reportedly has suitors waiting for his potential release. According to the St. Louis Globe Democrat, Bulger’s agent, Tom Condon said last week, “There are a few teams waiting for him.”
The quarterback market has been a source of activity throughout free agency as teams secured backups or brought in competition. The Broncos (Brady Quinn), Browns (Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace), Cardinals (Derek Anderson), Dolphins (Chad Pennington), 49ers (David Carr), Raiders (Charlie Frye and Bruce Gradkowski), Rams (Feeley), Redskins (Rex Grossman), Seahawks (Charlie Whitehurst), Giants (Jim Sorgi) and Steelers (Charlie Batch) all made moves. That’s a sizeable list of 11 teams.
So who are those few teams who could be waiting on Bulger? Based purely off a snap judgement, that list might include Buffalo, Carolina, Chicago (the Mike Martz connection) or Jacksonville.
