...agent Tom Condon of CAA, who represents Bulger, was in Los Angeles for the ESPYs -- and, more key to Bulger's future, to meet with Rams team president Jay Zygmunt about a potential contract extension for the St. Louis quarterback.


Hopefully for the Rams they can get a deal done, as he would more than likely garner a big contract should he be allowed hit the free agent market next year.

We have to get a deal done here. He is the key to our franchise right now, and is a Top 5 QB in the league. He deserves a Brady like contract of 6 years and 60 million....

He's also coming off a nice year where he put up career numbers in TDs and yards. He should get 8-9 mil a year over 4-5 years.

The Rams aren't stupid enough to let a QB of Bulger's talent hit FA, he could demand a pretty crazy contract!

The cynic and Cardinals fans in me hope they do not get a deal done. The realist tells me Marc loves this rams team, and he will sign for less to stay in STL. He deserves top 5 QB money but will settle for top 10 Money IMO.

I don't know if he loves playing in St Louis. He gotta love who hes throwing too but he was the second most sacked QB in the league last year so I wonder if thats on his mind Laughing

But remember, the Rams O-Line was ravaged with injures last season!

They need to get him re-signed. He is incredibly underrated. Bulger holds on to the ball to long at times, but Rams fans are getting spoiled with Warner and now Bulger. When a Vikings' QB makes a mistake, it's a lot worse than a sack.

If the Rams do not satisfy Bulger's desired needs it would be a gargantuan mistake. Bulger has solidified himself as a top quarterback in the league, and quite frankly he deserves to be paid like one. He improved his numbers drastically last year in Linehan's system; he set career highs in yards, touchdowns and touchdown to interception ratio. He has pin point accuracy, has a feel for the game and has a bond with the Rams offense. Bulger showed last year he can run the offense to perfection and should be the Rams quarterback of the future.

Don't be surprised if he gets 30-35+ guaranteed.

Yeah, you'd like that wouldn't you? Laughing


I think and HOPE that Bulger is going to stay in St. Louis. He loves the team, the city, and the fans. He just realized "hey, I'm pretty good....and all the other guys that are pretty good are getting paid alot more than me...hmmm...where's my agent?" The Rams front office should have no problem paying him "Brady type money". If I remember correctly, the Rams have alot of room in the salary cap, and should be able to afford this. This situation doesn't bother me at all. What does bother me, however, is looking further down the road, and wondering how much Jackson is going to ask for. Not to mention Holt, which will give us the same dilema we had with Bruce. Us Rams fans have seen this scenario in our heads for a long time. I'm sure if someone that just mispelt
dilemma in a previous sentence saw this coming, surely the Rams front office did.

Bulger isnt going anywhere, i think his contract will be very similiar to Drew Brees' contract he signed last year with the Saints.

Before factoring in the agent he probably deserves a contract around 12 million a year. Adding Condon into the mix raises it to 14 before he hits the free agent market. If he hits the market, I don't want to see the figure if I'm a fan that bought him.
