A day after Joe Flacco wondered how Bulger would fit into the quarterback room, Ravens safety Ed Reed said the team essentially doesn’t need the pricey backup.
Speaking on 105.7 The Fan, Reed said that Troy Smith would be more than equipped to lead the team to a championship if asked.
“I honestly think Troy was the guy and is the guy [at the backup spot]. . . . [Bulger is] “just another guy that’s been in the league and been around,”
It’s right about now Bulger may be wondering if he picked the wrong team. And Ravens management may be thinking they are better off getting rid of Smith soon.
When Reed wasn’t sticking up for Smith, the All Pro updated his recovery from hip surgery. He estimates he’s only “35%” and acknowledged there’s a decent chance he’ll go on the reserve/PUP list to start the season, which would force him to miss the first six games of the season.
