Another interesting situation has been reported that involves the Ravens and the Arizona Cardinals in regards to backup Quarterback Marc Bulger.
According to the Sports Xchange there may have been an “understanding” between Arizona and Bulger that the unrestricted free agent would be signed to lead their team once the league resumes normal operations.
The Ravens have stated that they won’t pursue any action because they feel it might be hard to prove. However, there seems to be some evidence that might support this claim. The Cardinals did not use any of their eight draft picks on a Quarterback, which was considered an area of need. When Cardinals Head coach Ken Whisenhunt, who lobbied for Bulger last season, was asked if he knew anything about a deal he denied it but reportedly grinned while responding.
The NFL warns team’s against this type of practice and rules as they see fit in cases where it has been proven.
It should be noted that Baltimore selected Virginia Tech Quarterback Tyrod Taylor with the 180th pick in the draft to prepare for Bulger’s expected departure.
