A year ago at this time, there was a widespread belief that the Cardinals were interested in bringing Marc Bulger to town should he become available.
The Rams knew this, and didn’t let Bulger go until the Cardinals had already spent their money on Derek Anderson. (Doh.) This time around, Bulger will be an unrestricted free agent and Arizona’s need for a quarterback is even greater.
A certain expert on the Cardinals offense thinks Bulger would be a great fit.
“If the Cardinals want to do what we did when I was there, I think Marc fits the bill extremely well,” Warner said on 1060 in Phoenix via Mike Sando’s ESPN.com blog. “He is a very accurate passer down the field, he can read defenses, he understands the system they play there and can do those things very well.”
It’s easy to forget what a reclamation project Warner was when he arrived in Arizona. Heck, there were times during his Cardinals career that he looked close to done before he rallied under Ken Whisenhunt.
Warner believes Bulger could have a similar career arc as a “nice stopgap” for a few years. He also said Carson Palmer could be “tremendous” in that system.
Anyone beats Derek Anderson.
