Troy Smith wasn't happy when he was the Ravens' backup quarterback.
I'm guessing he's not going to like being their third-string signal-caller either.
On a handful of occasions over the last six-plus months, Smith has asked out of Baltimore. Bulger's addition might give Troy his wish.
The Heisman Trophy winner initially asked to be traded in December, smack-dab in the middle of the Ravens' playoff run. Then, during the offseason, Smith, a restricted free agent, said that he would crawl to Cleveland if he could play for the Browns.
The Ravens responded by putting the low RFA tender on the former Ohio State star, signaling that he was on the market and could be had by any team willing to give up a fifth-round pick.
No team was willing to pull the trigger. Now, Smith could probably be had for less than a fifth-rounder.
With the Bulger signing, the Ravens have a capable backup in place, and while the Suggs Package was fun for a while, it doesn't bring enough to the offense to be the deciding factor in Smith's favor.
The fact that the Ravens were willing to give Bulger a base salary of $3.8 million means that GM Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh don't like the idea of Smith or John Beck taking over if Joe Flacco gets injured.
The Ravens don't have room on their roster for four quarterbacks, and Beck (last year's third-stringer) is OK with being the low man on the totem poll for now.
Smith is clearly not, which might mean his days in Baltimore are numbered.
