Bulger

THE NEWS

The Rams bit the proverbial bullet and matched restricted free agent offers for tight end Brandon Manumaleuna and cornerback Jerametrius Butler. Manumaleuna received a five-year, $8.3 million tender from the Panthers. He caught 29 passesfor 238 yards and two scores in 2003. Butler received a six-year, $15 million offer from the Redskins. "I'm happy they matched it," Butler told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I'm back in St. Louis. It's a familiar area, and that's where all my friends are. So I'm just happy I can continue playing there."


OUR VIEW

The Rams now drop from $4.6 million under the cap to around $1.8 million, and the team is now virtually out of the free agent market. They need to use that remaining space to sign rookies and to protect themselves in case another team makes an offer to restricted free agent Marc Bulger. These moves also free up more options for the Rams in the draft, as they won't necessarily need to pursue a corner or tight end in the first round.


With only $1.8 million under the cap, does anyone think another team will make a run for bulger? It seems to me, 1.8 million isn't all that much, and if someone makes an offer, they can either

A) Acquire Bulger

or

B) Force the Rams to make some cuts and match the offer

Dallas and San Diego both seem to be in need for a QB, and if SD trades Boston, they will have some extra cash to make an offer

Why would the Fins trade for a 3rd stringer when they could try and sign Bulger?

Hopefully some team will make the Lambs ante up.

If I were a team GM I would offer up the ante for Bulger. Teams like the Cowboys or Steelers could use Bulger. He is young and has a great quick release. I believe that in a system that would be less complicated than the Rams he could not turn the ball over as much. Who will make the move?

why would anyone risk taking Bulger away from the Rams?

Seems to me that having the QB issue in STL is just another thorn in the side of that franchise.

Yeah ur right, i couldnt think of the name. That is one powerhouse of a school. But I thought martz didnt like Warner :-?

He is whacked. Is he thinking that if they drop a QB theyll get rid of Bulger and play Warner? That wouldnt be the best move :-t

It would be nice for Bulger to come home ;-D wouldve been nice it marino did too...
