Brunell Back in 2007?

Yes, another Brunell thread - so there!

I was wildly speculating on where Mark Brunell might end up in 2007 as either a viable number two or maybe, maybe challenge for a starting role somewhere.

1. San Francisco 49ers ( since the team is coming around, a vet with Brunell's resume might not be a bad idea while Smith continues to find his way)

2. Cleveland Browns (need I say more?)

3. New York Jets ( just kidding!)

4. Miami Dolphins (will they need both Harrington and Culpepper next year? One of the two may be gone)

The other teams that are serious long shots would be Oakland, Carolina, and finally the Eagles.

I know Brunell is one of Gibbs favorites, but I don't think he's a lock to return next year as the team may need to trim some fat.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

i dont think anyone will take him as starter, and i dont know why he would leave just to be another backup unless he is cut here, which i also dont see happening

I think he's retiring. Theres no way anyone in the league would sign him....even to be 3rd stringer.

I could easily see him in Atlanta. He'd be close to home (Jacksonville), and he could help Musgrave work with Vick.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

I could definitely see him playing elsewhere with no problem. Look around the league right now - heck the NFC. It's hard to find a hand full of QBs having solid seasons.

My point is, Brunell is more than serviceable and, honestly, I think he could could challenge for a starting role somewhere.

They have some work ahead of them. Vick is an incredible talent. Unfortunately, nobody can seem to tap into it consistently

Not to turn this into a Vick thread, but they and others have tried to turn him into a convential quarterback, he'll never be that. Arthur Blank has said, in no uncertain terms, look get this thing together now or heads will start to roll.

We know Hess, in fact, are there any men alive that you don't drool over?

MB is just too expensive to pay for a back-up, but the Skins have done crazier things.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

I would like for Mark to stay. His leadership abilities are still an asset to this team and I think he's a good influence and mentor for Jason. I am glad to see the passion he's displayed during games since he lost his position and the support he's given to Jason. I think he still has a heart for this team, but if he were to leave, I believe he would choose retirement.

I have always liked the midget and hopes he stays with us to mentor JC to his full potential

You're correct his heart and leadership are great, but can we afford to pay him that hefty contract and sit on the sidelines for another year. That's what the Skins have to put on the table in the offseason.

Well it's like Mark said, "Football is a great game, but it's a horrible business."

I guess it will come down to choosing the lesser of two evils. I truly believe it will be more beneficial to keep him another year for Jason's sake. I would rather see Brunell as our backup than bringing in someone else to learn the system and Collins is simply a non factor in my opinion.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

As always, the salary cap will play the biggest role in deciding what we do with Brunell.

If we cut him from the roster, we'd save $2.3 million in 2007 salary cap space. Or we could renegotiate his contract. He is owed $5.2 million in base salary in 2007. We could still pay him that $5.2 million, just converted to signing bonus. This would free up about $3.5 - $4.0 million in 2007 salary cap space.

Knowing Gibbs and how much he loves vets, and specifically MB, I'm betting we keep him as a #2 and renegotiate his contract. No pay cuts, just renegotiation.

Two big factors at play:

1) Gibbs loves Brunell (and vet QBs in general).
2) The 'Skins love to renegotiate contracts so they can create tons of cap space.

My money says he stays as our #2. Unless he demands out, then Gibbs will accomodate him.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

I don't see him going anywhere, he'll either retire or return as a backup here. If I had to bet on it I'd say he retires.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

He'd make a solid backup. I hope he stays for that. When he's healthy and fresh, he's great....and he's be both as a backup. Having a veteran as a backup is a big plus, especially one who has played extensively in the system, except for Todd Collins. You need talent along with the knowledge.

We could always get Tim Hasselbeck back if he doesn't take over for Eli.
