Mark Brunell Retiring


Mark Brunell was a key part of the Jacksonville Jaguars for his nine years with the fledgling franchise.  His 19 years in the NFL are a testament to his ability even at an older age.

After leaving Jacksonville in 2003, Brunell played for the Redskins, Saints, and Jets to round out a career that saw him reach the AFC Championship twice, three pro bowls, and put the Jacksonville Jaguars on the map winning two division titles.

Brunell did a superb job as quarterback for the Jaguars, giving the most stability (and success) and success to the position thus far during the life of the franchise.

As we look to Blaine Gabbert for the future, we hope he can emulate the success that Brunell brought to the franchise in the 90s.
