Brunell, who has played 15 seasons in the league, will be the primary backup for Saints starter Drew Brees. Brunell, who began the 2004-06 seasons as the Redskins' No. 1 quarterback, passed for 3,050 yards with 23 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in leading the team to the playoffs in the 2005 season.

Brunell left the Redskins with hopes of finding a job as a primary backup. Full Story – Posthttp://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/03/13/AR2008031304059.html
