R.J. Gonser, who represents Rams QB Marc Bulger with agent Tom Condon of CAA, said Bulger isn't ready to hang up his cleats just yet. "Marc considers himself the quarterback of the Rams and wants to remain the quarterback of the Rams," said Gonser. "He has a lot of loyalty to St. Louis. He is about to marry a St. Louisan, wants to start a family here and spend the rest of his life in this city."
It remains to be seen if Devaney and head coach Steve Spagnuolo are in the mood to grant Bulger his wish. It's also too early to tell if Bulger — who is signed through 2013 — will change his mind about retirement based on his available employment options for 2010. Clearly, his first choice is to come back to the Rams, but so far, everyone in Earth City has been noncommittal about things. So who knows what Bulger would do if he has to go somewhere else to earn an NFL living.
