The Rams took the limbo out of Marc Bulger’s future in St. Louis, releasing the veteran quarterback on Monday.
The proverbial writing has been on the wall for Bulger, who showed up to offseason workouts with the Rams despite mounting chatter that his career in St. Louis could end if the team selects Sam Bradford with the first overall pick in the draft. With the expected addition of Bradford, A.J. Feeley on the roster as a veteran stop-gap and the fact that Bulger was due $8.5 million next season, his release isn’t a surprise.
The Rams officially bid adieu to Bulger with a statement.
“It is always hard to part ways with someone you care for and appreciate,” said Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo. “I was fortunate as a first-year head coach to have Marc on our team. I will always be indebted to him for his work ethic, character and leadership. We wish him and his family nothing but the best.”
Although a number of teams made moves to solidify their quarterback depth charts earlier in free agency, Bulger would seem to hold value for teams like Buffalo, Houston, Carolina and Chicago (that Mike Martz connection, again).
Some of the teams might also have interest in Redskins QB Jason Campbell, reports Jason La Canfora.
