The New York Jets resigned veteran quarterback Mark Brunell to resume his duties as a backup and mentor to Mark Sanchez.
The St. Joseph High graduate signed a one-year deal with the Jets, after the club released him on Friday to clear up salary cap space.
Prior to his release, the 40 year old was set to make $1,250,000. Now, multiple media sources report he will make the NFL minimum for veterans, which is $910,000.
Brunell expressed his excitement on his Twitter account. "Just resigned with Jets. Getting ready for my 19th training camp. Here we go!"
He played in 2 games for the Jets last year. He completed 7 of his 13 passes for 117 yards and 2 touchdowns.
