These days, if a quarterback becomes available, the Oakland Raiders will likely consider him.
BulgerOakland pursued Donovan McNabb before he was traded from Philadelphia to Washington and the team is reportedly interested in Jason Campbell, who McNabb is replacing as the starter in Washington.
Bulger doesn’t appear to be an instant-impact player. He is 33, has dealt with injuries lately and has seen his production slip. If Oakland signed Bulger, he’d likely compete with JaMarcus Russell and Bruce Gradkowski. He wouldn’t be considered the sure-fire starter. So, it may not be worth Oakland’s time to pursue him.
But he’s an available quarterback -- we’ve learned in the past couple of weeks that Oakland is definitely open to adding one.
