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.
