DCsportsfan53 Posted March 3, 2006 Share Posted March 3, 2006 Redskins.com Earlier this week, Mark Brunell agreed to terms on a restructured contract, pending an extension of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The veteran quarterback is hopeful that it starts a trend among his teammates. Said Brunell: "A lot of guys have to step up, particularly guys who are making a considerable amount of money. We have to keep this team together." The 13-year NFL veteran continued: "It goes back to what's important, the team is what's important. If I don't restructure, then that may cost a couple of other guys from not being able to be re-signed. "All the guys who have been around, I know, feel the same way. You're helping the football when you restructure. There are a lot of different ways to do it, different approaches. I think we'll get there. "Nowadays, with free agency, it's not easy to keep a team together. But that's what we need to do--keep our core guys. I've never been on a team with as much character and chemistry." I know this won't change anyone's mind but, especially after things like this, it really baffles me that so many people still love to hate on Brunell and want to see him gone. :whoknows: What a classy guy and a true leader.
