Raiders waived QB Rhett Bomar.
Bomar has bounced around the league since being selected in the fifth round by the Giants in 2009. He had no chance of cracking the Raiders' 53-man roster with Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart, and Terrelle Pryor in the picture. Mon, May 14, 2012 06:26:00 PM

Raiders signed QB Rhett Bomar to a reserve/future contract.

The Raiders also inked DE Hall Davis and S Curtis Taylor to reserve/future pacts. A fifth-round pick of the Giants in 2009, Bomar has yet to take a regular-season snap. He was among the Vikings' final cuts this season.

Vikings waived QB Rhett Bomar.

The writing was on the wall for Bomar when the Vikings added Donovan McNabb and Christian Ponder this offseason. The Giants' 2009 fifth-round pick will likely get more chances in the league thanks to his strong arm. The Vikings also waived TE Ed Barham, WR Andre Holmes, OL Conan Amituanai, DT Colby Whitlock, LB Kyle O'Donnell, LB Jonathan Gilmore, DB Chris Adingupu, DB Simeon Castille and K Nate Whitaker. Their roster stands at 80.

Vikings QB Rhett Bomar was arrested early Sunday on third-degree drunken driving charges.

Bomar also had issues with drinking in college, before his transfer from Oklahoma to Sam Houston State. Details of the arrest are unclear, but Bomar was booked near the Vikings' training camp facility in Mankato, Minnesota. Already buried on the depth chart, the arrest will likely end his time with the Vikes.

Vikings interim coach Leslie Frazier said Rhett Bomar was signed because the team needed a "live arm," but he added that Bomar will be evaluated for the future, as well.

The Vikings quarterback situation for 2011 is completely up in the air with Brett Favre slated to retire and Tarvaris Jackson entering free agency, so Bomar will be given consideration for a future role along with Joe Webb. Frazier said he's been impressed in the short time Bomar has been with the Vikes and that his strong arm "jumps out at you right away."

Vikings signed QB Rhett Bomar off the Giants' practice squad.

Bomar becomes the fifth quarterback on Minnesota's roster, so his addition figures to mean Patrick Ramsey will be released. Either way, it appears the out-of-contention Vikings are stocking up on as many young QBs for the stretch run as possible, so that they can carry them onto their offseason roster. Brett Favre isn't expected back, and Tarvaris Jackson is an impending free agent. Joe Webb will enter the spring atop the depth chart.
Mon, Dec 20, 2010 01:56:00 PM

Giants signed QB Rhett Bomar, TEs Bear Pascoe and Jake Ballard, C Jim Cordle, DT Nate Collins, CB Seth Williams, and S Sha'reff Rashad to their practice squad.

Bomar received unearned publicity in camp when he was briefly elevated to second on the depth chart, but the Giants have little confidence in him. The rest of the league agrees. Rashad just barely missed out on a roster spot. He'll be the first player activated if one of the safeties goes down.
Sun, Sep 5, 2010 03:00:00 PM

Giants waived QB Rhett Bomar.

It's a bad sign for Bomar that he couldn't step up when Jim Sorgi went down. The Giants traded for Sage Rosenfels and clearly don't even see Bomar as a long-term project. Bomar was the Giants' fifth-round pick in 2009.
Sat, Sep 4, 2010 01:24:00 PM

Giants coach Tom Coughlin hinted that Rhett Bomar may be able to overtake No. 2 QB Jim Sorgi (shoulder) with a strong performance Saturday.

Bomar played the entire game against the Steelers last week and went 13-of-26 for 167 yards with an interception. The numbers aren't great, but Coughlin came away impressed. Sorgi is trying to get back on the practice field as soon as Monday to reassert control of the backup gig.
Fri, Aug 27, 2010 09:07:00 AM

Giants QB Rhett Bomar will get a majority of the snaps in Saturday's preseason matchup against the Steelers.

With Eli Manning (forehead) and Jim Sorgi (shoulder) out, Bomar will have a chance to showcase his talent. He'll be playing for the practice squad this season unless he pulls a Victor Cruz Saturday.
Thu, Aug 19, 2010 06:12:00 PM

Rhett Bomar, the Giants' 2008 fifth-rounder, is squarely on the roster bubble this summer.

Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride essentially anointed veteran Jim Sorgi the backup this offseason, and the Giants are unlikely to carry three QBs. Bomar is headed back to the practice squad for a second straight season unless he turns heads in camp.
Tue, Jul 20, 2010 03:11:00 PM

Rhett Bomar will get a real shot at being the Giants No. 2 QB, according to beat writer Mike Garafolo.

Bomar spent all of last season on the practice squad. He'll have to beat out newly signed Jim Sorgi to be Eli Manning's backup and we suspect the Giants don't believe Bomar is ready to do that yet.
Wed, Mar 10, 2010 10:07:00 AM

Giants signed QB Rhett Bomar off their practice squad.

Eli Manning is still tentatively expected to start and play the entire game. Bomar, who the Giants took in the fifth round this season, has spent the entire season on the practice squad.
Thu, Dec 31, 2009 11:27:00 AM

Giants signed QB Rhett Bomar to their practice squad.

The fifth-rounder from Sam Houston State didn't play well enough in the preseason to attract any interest. The Giants will keep just two QBs on their active roster for a second straight season (Eli Manning and David Carr).
Sun, Sep 6, 2009 06:42:00 PM

Giants waived QB Rhett Bomar.

Bomar was their fifth-round pick this season. It looks like the Giants are prepared to go with just two quarterbacks again this season, although they'll probably try to sneak Bomar through waivers. If he gets claimed, Andre Woodson could find his way back onto the practice squad.
