Brunell Leading the Battle for the Backup QB Spot

When it comes to the backup QB spot for the Saints, Pro Football Weekly reports that Mark Brunell is the leader right now for the position over Joey Harrington. Here’s the report:

Sources say Mark Brunell is still ahead of Joey Harrington on the Saints’ depth chart at quarterback. New Orleans re-signed Harrington in late March, but head coach Sean Payton still has more confidence in Brunell, should he need to go to a backup if Drew Brees were to suffer an injury that kept him out for a few games. Word is the Saints view Brunell as a near-perfect fit as a primary backup — he doesn’t have great arm strength, but he is known as a sound decision maker, which is a trait Payton values.
