Agreed, bring him on board as long as he doesn't take Palko's spot.

I am a Brunell fan as well. The guy plays (played) with a lot of guts.

Payton apparently has a specific hierarchy in mind for the QB position


1. Franchise QB
2. Older veteran past his prime
3. Young whipper-snapper

The older vet serves as a sounding board for the starter, an experienced guy who has relevant advice, can serve as an additional sets of eyes for the offense, can help get the plays into the QB, and can serve as a backup in a pinch. He's also like a mini-position coach for the young whipper-snapper.

He may be signed but I don't think by tomorrow. There are still a couple other possibilites I think the Saints might look at like Kelly Holcomb and Luke McCown. JMO

Plus, he can run each week's opposition plays in practice for the defense. That's were an experienced backup can really help.

Where was Brunell this year? Brunell is a tough son of a gun.
