Report: New York Jets to Resign Mark Brunell

Manish Mehta tweets that the Jets will bring back Mark Brunell.

One more from early this morning: Mark Brunell, who was released on Friday, expected to re-sign with tomorrow, per source.

On the one hand, the only quarterbacks the Jets currently have to back up Mark Sanchez are Greg McElroy and Drew Willy. On the other hand, I am not convinced Brunell is better than either of them.

I am not surprised Mark is on the way back. The team seems to like his mentorship of Mark Sanchez. I only wonder why the team cannot find a guy who can mentor Sanchez and play football a little bit better. I cannot really say that I trust Brunell to man the ship should anything happen to Mark Sanchez.

One can only presume the Jets created a little extra cap space by jettisoning Brunell. yesterday Let's see what they can do with it.
