The Long, Slow Downward Spiral Of Brian Brohm’s Career Continues
Remember [intlink id=”83″ type=”category”]Brian Brohm[/intlink]?
The former Louisville quarterback and Green Bay Packers second-round pick was supposed to be either a superb backup for [intlink id=”25″ type=”category”]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink], competition for Rodgers, or traded to another team for a high draft pick by now.
Instead, he got cut after his second Packers training camp, signed to the practice squad and picked up by the [intlink id=”509″ type=”category”]Buffalo Bills[/intlink].
Although he was given an opportunity to start in Buffalo, he performed much like he did in Green Bay. That is to say, nothing like he did at Louisville.
In three career games with the Bills, including two starts, Brohm was 27-of-52 for 252 yards, zero touchdowns and five interceptions.
The Bills decided to go with a guy named Levi Brown as their No. 3 quarterback this season and let Brohm move on. Brown is entering his second NFL season after playing collegiately at Troy. He’s thrown three NFL passes and one was intercepted.
The dream isn’t over just yet for Brohm, though.
He’s been signed by the UFL’s Las Vegas Locomotives.
Brohm will compete with Chase Clement, Zac Lee, and Chad Friehauf for the Locomotives starting quarterback job.
Clement played at Rice and went undrafted in 2009. Lee was an undrafted free agent from Nebraska this season. He was signed by the Seahawks for one week before being cut. Similarly, Friehauf was an undrafted free agent from the Colorado School of Mines who was briefly with the Broncos.
This is the company Brian Brohm now keeps.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
