The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded quarterback Mark Brunell to the Washington Redskins for a third-round selection in the 2004 NFL Draft.
"With this trade being completed today, I want to publicly thank Mark Brunell for his nine years as a Jaguar, and I want to wish Mark and his family nothing but success in Washington," said Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver. "Mark's contributions to this football team have been documented, but his contributions to this community extend far beyond the football field. He has made an impact here in many ways, and we are indebted to him for what he helped us achieve."
Brunell started 117 of his 122 regular season games with the Jaguars after being acquired by Jacksonville via a trade with Green Bay in 1995. He also started all eight postseason contests for the Jaguars. Brunell holds numerous team passing records and finished his tenure with 25,698 yards passing on 2,184 of 3,612 attempts and a 60.5 completion percentage. He threw 144 touchdown passes versus 86 interceptions for a passer rating of 85.5. He also rushed for 2,223 yards and 14 touchdowns.
