Veteran punter Todd Sauerbrun, whose colorful history includes a suspension for taking ephedra, a link to a South Carolina doctor who dispensed steroids, and an arrest for roughing up a cab driver, will continue his football career.
It’ll happen in Orlando, with the Florida Tuskers of the UFL.
Agent David Canter disclosed the news earlier today, on his Twitter page (where Canter routinely types HIS ENTRIES IN ALL CAPS. IT’S ANNOYING AS HELL, AIN’T IT, DAVE?)
Sauerbrun spent 13 years in the NFL, playing for the Bears, Chiefs, Panthers, Broncos, Patriots, and Broncos. He last played in 2007.
So while many believe the UFL to be a developmental league, the Florida Tuskers will be a refuge for players long in the tooth. Their roster includes former NFL players like Jermaine Wiggins and Zach Piller.
Why do we have a feeling that, eventually, Jeff George will be signing there?
And that’s not a knock on George. He’s better than any of the slapdick quarterbacks who have landed in the four-team league that starts play in October.
