Todd Sauerbrun has made headlines again, only this time he isn’t being linked to any off-field shenanigans. The former NFL punter has agreed to terms with the Florida Tuskers franchise of the United Football League.

Sauerbrun’s agent, David Canter, announced the signing via his Twitter account. Sauerbrun, a second-round pick of the Bears in 1995, was most recently a member of the Broncos in 2007. His 13 years in the NFL have also seen him play as a member of the Chiefs, Patriots and Panthers.

The 36-year-old Sauerbrun was the ‘01 recipient of PFW’s Golden Toe Award, which is given annually to the NFL’s best placekicker or punter. His career average is 44.1 yards-per-punt, marked by a career-long 73-yarder in ’01.

To Sauerbrun, I say this: Good luck. Let’s hope you can make the necessary changes to rewrite the end of your up-and-down career, both between the chalk and otherwise. After all, the signing of J.P. Losman has shown that the UFL is willing to give beleaguered NFL players a shot at redemption, right?
