Description: There's a "feeling around the Jets" that they will sign free agent Mark Brunell, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
Insight: Brunnell would be able to tutor Mark Sanchez in the ways of the league. The Jets must be confident that the ancient quarterback still has something left in him. (

Description: Coach Rex Ryan acknowledged that the Jets remain interested in signing free agent Mark Brunell.
Insight: The move makes sense only if they are looking for a formerly good vet to tutor Mark Sanchez. If Brunell were ever handed the reins to the offense due to a Sanchez injury, the results would be disastrous. (

Description: The Jets are hosting free agent QB Mark Brunell on Wednesday.
Insight: Brunell's career is finished, so taking him onboard, even just to mentor Mark Sanchez, doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Don;t expect the club to sign him. (
