Mark Brunell signs with the Saints.

Mark's time is over in DC. He signs with the Saints.

Another confirmation link will follow. Heard the same information on the Riggins show Live.

Good luck!

Bye, Bye Brunell

From Jason L: Former starting quarterback Mark Brunell has signed with the New Orleans Saints, according to a league source. Brunell visited the Saints this week and also drew significant interest from Atlanta and Green Bay. He was the first player Joe Gibbs pursued after returning to coaching in 2004. He was the primary starter the next two seasons before losing his starting job to Jason Campbell midway through the 2006 season.

Mark will always be a part of Redskins' lore. The Monday Night Miracle will go down as one of our greastest victories over the Cowgirls.

Re: Mark Brunell signs with the Saints.

honestly, I consider him a cancer. From my point of view, most of what we accomplished was in spite of him. While there are many to choose from (AA, Lloyd, TJ, etc) I feel he was Gibbs 2.0 biggest mistake. I say this not so much because of his stats (which were not good) but mostly due to the opportunity cost associated with not playing someone else. In short, we put way too much faith in a broken down body.
That said, I can't fault him for taking the money and I can't deny that he is a class act. Good luck to Mark "MVP" Brunell.

Re: Mark Brunell signs with the Saints.

I don't think there has been another redskins player in my relatively short lifetime that polarized the fan base the way Mark did. Something tells me we will still be talking about him 5 or 10 years from now.

I wish Mark only the very best. But it was time for Mark to move on or retire, although IMO I think he can be a possible #2 for a fill in (a few games), #3 role he's fine as a mentor for another year maybe two, who knows maybe even a future QB coach. So unless it where to be a veteran minimum contract I'm glad his time has come to move on.

And as far as a mentor to JC that would be Todd, and we have a solid #2 QB. Todd has been around the block a few times and can mentor JC and compete at a high level.

Re: Mark Brunell signs with the Saints.

Good luck dude. I never really liked him on the Skins roster, but somehow I would catch myself watching him. Never really knew when he was going to get hot and make a big play, or if he was going to just keel over.
