Jets Want Bulger?

Well, if the Rams’ reported purchase of a plane ticket to St. Louis means that the Rams are thinking about drafting USC quarterback Mark Sanchez, it also could mean that Marc Bulger would be available in trade. And the Jets would be interested, according to Albert Breer of The same dynamic that unfolded in Denver could be happening in St. Louis -- a new coach and new offensive staff might want a new quarterback. The Rams would have their work cut out for them, however, if they choose to go with Sanchez and trade Bulger. At less than $11 million under the salary cap, the Rams would likely take a fairly large charge by moving Bulger, whose current contract contained $27 million guaranteed and became effective less than two years ago. Depending on the manner in which the Sanchez sweepstakes unfold, the Jets could be pursuing Browns quarterback Brady Quinn and/or Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell. And it’s not surprising. After spending tens of millions at other positions over the past two years, the Jets have no current answer at the most important position on the field. As Rich Cimini of the New York Daily News pointed out Friday, G.M. Mike Tannenbaum’s job could be hinging on his ability to emerge from draft weekend with a good quarterback.
