Unrestricted free agent quarterback Mark Brunell will will work out for the Jets in Florham Park today.
The 39-year-old quarterback visited the team’s training facility in April. The Jets believe the 17-year veteran can be a mentor for Mark Sanchez.
In a poll this offseason of more than a dozen starters that revealed that the overwhelming majority favored Kellen Clemens over Brunell as the backup to Sanchez in 2010.
"Brunell? Isn't he like 50 years old?" said one player of the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback earlier this summer.
Brunell, who will turn 40 in September, has just one start and 30 pass attempts in the past three seasons. He has one more start (10) than Clemens (9) in the past four years.
"I didn't even know Brunell was still in the league until we played them last year," said another Jets player of the long-time Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback.
