Pending a physical, the Baltimore Ravens have agreed in principle to a one-year contract with QB Marc Bulger, executive vice president/general manager Ozzie Newsome announced Wednesday evening.
Bulger, a nine-year NFL veteran and two-time Pro Bowler (2003 and 2006), has played all 96 games (95 starts) of his career with the St. Louis Rams. He finished his tenure there ranking first in franchise history in completions (1,969), second in passing yards (22,814), completion percentage (62.1) and passer rating (84.4), and third in touchdown passes (122) and attempts (3,171).
Bulger has registered 27 games of at least 300 yards passing during his career. In 2008, he became the fifth-fastest quarterback in NFL history to reach the 20,000-yard passing milestone, doing so in just 81 games.
While battling injuries, Bulger played in nine games for St. Louis during the 2009 season, making eight starts. He was placed on Injured Reserve (leg) on Dec. 26.
