Report: Veteran QB Mark Brunell Is Broke

Tuesday November 1st, 2011

Former Pro Bowl quarterback Mark Brunell has reportedly squandered the $50 million he has earned over the course of his 17-year career and is currently in bankruptcy court, reports Action News Jacksonville.

Brunell reportedly lost the majority of his fortune through a series of bad investments, most notably in a high end reality venture called Champion LLC, and in a fast food franchise called Whataburger. The former pro bowler is also reportedly facing upwards of $24 million in claims.

Action News reports that according to bankruptcy filings, Brunell will begin a full-time job as a medical sales representative. Brunell has been the back up for the Jets for the past two seasons. His best years came as the starting quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 1990’s when he was selected to three Pro Bowls.
