|Rams QB Bulger Retires
|Former St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger tells ESPN.com he is retiring after 11 NFL seasons.
Bulger was selected for the Pro Bowl twice and passed for 22,814 yards, 122 touchdowns and 93 interceptions.
Bulger was drafted out of West Virginia by New Orleans in 2000, but never played a game for the Saints. He latched on with St. Louis in 2001 and eventually succeeded Kurt Warner as the starter in St. Louis.
He passed for more than 3,800 yards three times, including a career-best 4,301 in 2006, the only season he played all 16 games.
After parting with St. Louis after the 2009 season, he spent last year with the Ravens but did not play.
