View Full Version : Bulger breaks the bank

07-27-2007, 12:53 PM
Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that, contrary to some other reports on the matter, the new contract signed by Rams quarterback Marc Bulger is a six-year, $65 million deal with a whopping $29 million in guaranteed money.
Schefter reports that Bulger will earn $32 million in the first three years of the deal.
It's not quite Dwight Freeney or Peyton Manning (or Mike Vick) money, but it's close. It's the fourth-highest guaranteed money package in league history.
With that said, it soon could be eclipsed by one or both of the first two picks in the 2007 draft -- Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell and Lions receiver Calvin Johnson. We've heard rumbling that they each want at least $30 million guaranteed.
Bulger skipped a mandatory meeting on Thursday evening, and the deal was wrapped up on Friday morning.
Meanwhile, it's been nice to talk about a former WVU player and money without the topic being the former WVU player throwing the money in the air at a strip club.

Scratch off St. Louis from Culpepper's list. Bulger when healthy is one of the elite QB's in the NFL. Very underrated, very accurate. I like his game alot.

Good for him. He deserves it. He is one of the top 5 QB's today.

I think it is fair if you look at his numbers. He is a top tier QB. Good for him

I like Bulger a lot. If his line gives him more protection, watch out.
