Cardinals G.M. Rod Graves has heard the latest Marc Bulger-to-Arizona rumors. And while he downplayed the seriousness of the team’s interest, he didn’t rule out the possibility of adding Bulger in the future.
“We are not actively engaged in discussion with Marc Bulger,” Graves
said to Steve Wyche of NFL.com. “If he is interested, we’re appreciative, but right now,
we’re focused on the guys that we have here. Matt has done a great job
so far, but so has Derek Anderson and our young guys.”
So you’re telling me there’s a chance?
“I’ve learned to never say never,” Graves said. “Who knows what may happen? Ken [Whisenhunt] hasn’t made any final decisions on who will be the starter
at quarterback. Right now, we’re not looking outside of our group.
That’s not our focus.”
Darren Urban, writing for the Cardinals website, knows the dynamics involved in Arizona as well as anyone. He thinks bringing in Bulger would essentially be the end of Leinart’s chances with the team.
That’s a massive decision and it’s not one the Cardinals are ready to make anytime soon based on Graves’ comments.
