Bulger's retirement will force Ravens to look for vet backup QB





Ravens24x7.com has learned from a team source that QB Marc Bulger has decided to retire and that leaves the Ravens with few options in the free agent market. It is highly unlikely that they would go into the 2011 season with Tyrod Taylor second on the depth chart at quarterback.

When questioned whether the threat of retirement was a negotiating ploy and could the two-time Pro Bowler change his mind, the texted answer was a blunt, “No!” The source informed us that Bulger made his decision back in March.

Quarterbacks that the team could consider include: Chris Sims, Trent Edwards, Jake Delhomme, J.P. Losman, Brodie Croyle, Rex Grossman, Jim Sorgi, Troy Smith and Shaun Hill.

Yikes. That is a cringe-worthy list of potentials. Losing Bulger is losing a VERY valuable insurance policy. Better hope Flacco stays healthy.

Sorry to learn this, but they probably weren't going to be able to pay him anyway. From the list presented, Delhomme would be my choice. By the way, if the season started today, the Ravens would be in trouble in at least three other areas: RT, DE and...depth. This is beginning to look more like a team in transition than a playoff contender, rebuilding for the future. This could be why they're leaning towards a running game even though the league rule changes heavily favor the passing game......
