Len Pasquarelli reports that Mark Brunell’s future with the Reskins is “uncertain” now that he needs shoulder surgery.
Veteran quarterback Mark Brunell could miss the Washington Redskins’ entire offseason program, and might not be ready until training camp in July, following Monday surgery to repair labrum damage to his throwing shoulder.
The question of Brunell’s availability in the offseason, coupled with his scheduled base salary of $5.2 million for 2007, leaves his future with the Redskins uncertain. The 14-year veteran lost his starting job to Jason Campbell at midseason, and the youngster will go to camp No. 1 on the depth chart, meaning that Brunell will almost certainly be asked to rework his contract.
I would think Brunell’s future with the Redskins was uncertain even if he were completely healthy. Who wants a backup quarterback with a starter’s salary, let alone one who will turn 37 the first month of the season? At the right price, Brunell might be attractive on another team but doesn’t make much sense to keep him on a team rebuilding under a young quarterback.
