Bulger let go by Rams
If there was any doubt remaining on the St. Louis Rams’ intentions with the No. 1 pick in the draft, it looks to have been erased today.
The Rams pulled the plug on veteran Marc Bulger, releasing the quarterback and putting them a step closer to selecting Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford with the top pick in the draft.
Bulger’s career took off when he directed the Greatest Show on Turf following Kurt Warner’s departure from St. Louis. The Rams have been so bad in recent years that his career starting record is an unsightly 41-54. He threw for nearly 23,000 yards, the second-high total in franchise history. But his contract for this season, which called for him to earn $8.5 million, made it clear he wouldn't return.
The Rams added A.J. Feeley earlier and he’s expected to be the backup—the guy who holds the clipboard behind Bradford. Bulger, meanwhile, will look to jump-start his career elsewhere. The only issue is the teams still trolling for quarterbacks aren’t particularly well off right now.
