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.
