Ravens, Bulger agree to 1-year deal
ESPN.com news services
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with quarterback Marc Bulger.
The deal is worth $3.8 million, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
The deal, struck Wednesday, will become complete if Bulger passes a physical.
Bulger spent the previous nine years of his career with the St. Louis Rams. The two-time Pro Bowler is expected to compete to be the backup to Joe Flacco.
Bulger has 27 games of at least 300 yards passing during his career. In 2008, he became the fifth-fastest quarterback in NFL history to reach the 20,000-yard passing milestone, doing so in only 81 games.
He fought a series of injuries last season and played in only nine games before placing in injured reserve on Dec. 26.
