Mark Brunell blocked from joining Jets by Jason Taylor

Posted by Mike Florio on April 9, 2010 5:09 PM ET
Veteran quarterback Mark Brunell wants to join the Jets, according to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. But Brunell can't do so until linebacker Jason Taylor makes up his mind.

The reason arises from the "Final Eight Plan." The Jets can sign only one unrestricted free agent, given the recent decision of kicker Jay Feely to sign with the Cardinals. They can't sign a second UFA until a second unrestricted free agent joins a new team, and Taylor has dibs on the spot created by Feely.

Signing Brunell, who won a Super Bowl ring with the Saints in 2009, could be an indication that the team plans to move on from Kellen Clemens, a second-round pick in 2006 who wants to be a starter and who would be the starter if he had generated a passer rating of higher than 60.9 when he finally got the chance.

Re: Mark Brunell blocked from joining Jets by Jason Taylor

I don't ever believe a single word that I read coming from Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com. That man is the biggest Saints hater that has ever walked the face of the Earth and I wouldn't put it past him to make (-Censor-) up just to stir up some negativity amongst the Saints faithful.

I heard it reported straight from the horse's mouth well before any of this stuff ever came out about the Jets inviting Brunell for a visit that he wanted nothing more than to stay in New Orleans with the Super Bowl Champion Saints for at least another year.

Did any of y'all read that story that came out in profootballtalk.com about a week or so ago about the local Saints media supposedly being shunned by the Saints front office and talking about how arrogant the Saints higher ups have supposedly become after winning a championship? The only media person in New Orleans who would have anything negative to say about the Saints' front office would be that Brian Allee-Walsh jerk who either quit or was fired from the TP and now works for that terrible rag of a website called NewOrleans.com.

Re: Mark Brunell blocked from joining Jets by Jason Taylor

Mark Brunell at this stage of his career would make an excellent QB Coach. He is a very personable guy and knows the game and would be a great teacher. If something happened to Drew last season and Mark had to come in for any length of time we probably would not have made it to the Super Bowl.
