    ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger, who is seeking a new contract, was a no-show Thursday for a mandatory team meeting the day before the start of training camp.

    Rams coach Scott Linehan said team officials were meeting with Bulger's representatives and was hopeful that Bulger would be on the field for the first practice Friday morning.

    "I'd be surprised if he wasn't," Linehan said. "I think it'll be resolved. I'd be really surprised if it got that far, personally."

    Linehan said the two-time Pro Bowl quarterback's no show was an excused absence, for now, and there would be no fine. The two spoke by telephone Thursday morning and Linehan believed that Bulger was in St. Louis.

    "Certainly I'd be a lot more comfortable if it was resolved before the meeting, but I'll be fine if it's resolved in this meeting," Linehan said.

    Bulger is in the final season of a four-year, $19.1 million contract, putting him somewhere in the middle of the NFL in terms of salary for his position. The team has said signing him to a new deal is a priority and has been formulating an offer that could make him the highest-paid player in franchise history.

    Earlier this month, Bulger said in an interview with Sirius Radio that he would consider a holdout. Last year he threw for 4,301 yards with 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions, a 62.9 percent completion rate and ranked fourth in the NFL in passer rating.

    "I don't think it's going to happen, but you never know," Bulger said then. "I don't want to rule anything out."

    So another unhappy player who can't look to finish up their contract before whining about their next one
    - still will upset the Rams a little so worth it
    ;D
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    I like Bulger, good QB.
    I can't blame him, going into the final year of his contract.
    He wants to go into the season without the haze of wondering where he'll be next year.
    The Rams should ink him long-term, he's a keeper.

    The Rams are going to trade for Kurt Warner and see if he can bring back the magic.
    LOL.

    Not too worried tho. Linehan knows his offense is screwed without his arm.

    I dunno.....the Rams (albeit with Marsh) went through Trent Green, Kurt Warner, Jamie Martin, the kid from Harvard and Bulger and had success with all of them.
    Who's the backup in St. Louis - Gus Frerotte?

    Good point.

    But do you really think Marc Bulger will miss any regualr-season football?

    I seriously doubt it.

    No, I don't.
    But I don't think this little tiff is going to help him get a deal, either.
