Born in Holyoke, Colorado, Brundige played high school football at tiny Haxtun in northeastern Colorado and then played college football at the University of Colorado in Boulder. He was a physics major at CU and also threw the shot put for the Buffaloes' track team. After a senior season in 1969 inxwhich he was named first-team All-American, he was selected in the second round of the 1970 NFL draft, 43rd overall, by head coach Vince Lombardi of the Redskins.

At age 21, he was a starter as a rookie in 1970 at defensive tackle. At the end of his third season in the NFL, Brundige became a part of both Redskin and Super Bowl lore in Super Bowl VII. He blocked the field goal attempt by Garo Yepremian that led to the bizarre fumble-return touchdown by Mike Bass that cut the Miami Dolphins' lead to 14–7 with just over two minutes remaining.

In 2002 for the Redskins' 70th anniversary, Brundige was named a member of the 70 Greatest Redskins.

After his playing days, Brundige was a general manager of a car dealership in the Shenandoah Valley at Front Royal, Virginia.
