Default Brennan to play for Glanville in UFL

So excited to hear hes healthy and playing football again.

http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/yb/158171559


April 18--Quarterback Colt Brennan will return to pro football this season with the Hartford Colonials of the United Football League, Brennan's father, Terry, told the Star-Advertiser today.

Jerry Glanville was recently named head coach of the Colonials. The former NFL head coach was the defensive coordinator at Hawaii during Brennan's first two years as UH's quarterback in 2005 and 2006.

Hartford was 3-5 in the UFL last year. Former NFL quarterback Josh McCown started for the Colonials and is the only quarterback currently on the team's roster. Glanville said on his Twitter feed that the team will be soon officially adding more players.

Colt Brennan did not immediately return a text message.

"This looks like a good opportunity for Colt," Terry Brennan said in a phone interview. "I think Colt and his agents like this because playing in Canada requires a two-year contract and this doesn't. The season ends in November and if he does well he could possibly be picked up by an NFL team."

Brennan set numerous school, conference and national passing records and was third in the Heisman Trophy voting in 2007 when he led UH to an unbeaten regular-season record and the Sugar Bowl.

He was drafted in the sixth round by the Washington Redskins. He did not play in a regular-season game in two seasons there and was released prior to last season. Brennan was with the Oakland Raiders in the 2010 preseason, but did not make the team.

Last November, Brennan was seriously injured in a two-car accident on the Big Island. He was passenger in a vehicle driven by his girlfriend, Shakti Stream. The driver of the other car, Theresa Wang, was critically injured in the head-on collision. An attorney representing Wang has filed suit against Stream.

Brennan and Glanville were together last week at an SMU practice in Dallas. That's where June Jones is now head coach. Jones was head coach at UH when Glanville and Brennan were there.

Brennan will be 28 in August.

Good to hear he's healthy again and able to play. However, I think he is making a mistake thinking that he has an NFL future. There's nothing wrong with going to the CFL and trying to be a starter there (after a couple of years). Starting QBs can make 250K+. I think he is better suited for the CFL.

My how things can change. IIRC, Brennan was touted as a high pick and was considering foregoing his senior year before returning to Hawaii. Other than a brief flash in a Skins preseason game his career went straight downhill.
