In April PFT reported that the Arizona Cardinals could be interested in signing former St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger. Today a new report says the Cardinals are still interested, in part because of Matt Leinart’s performance this offseason.
Jason Cole of Yahoo reports that the Cardinals’ coaching staff hasn’t been impressed with the work of either Leinart or Derek Anderson, and that coach Ken Whisenhunt will want to make a play for Bulger if he doesn’t see improvement from the quarterbacks he already has.
It makes sense that Whisenhunt might think he could take a former Rams quarterback who appears to be washed up and turn him into a solid starter. He already did it once with Kurt Warner.
Bulger didn’t have a particularly good season in 2009, with a 70.7 passer rating. Then again, that’s better than the 2009 passer rating of Leinart (64.6) and Anderson (42.1).
