Mark Brunell is hopeful to play another season in the NFL and emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy before that season starts.
Continuing a process that started almost a year ago, bankruptcy Judge Jerry Funk gave “conditional approval” on Tuesday to the disclosure statement that details Brunell’s plans to pay his debts, according to Mark Basch of the Florida Times-Union.
There are a few more steps for Brunell to get approved out of bankruptcy, but they are expected to conclude in the next few months. Brunell wants to play another season with New York.
“If there is an opportunity to play, I expect he will,” Brunell’s attorney said. “We’re hopeful though.”
Brunell is under contract with the Jets and figures to be back.
