Bills sign quarterback Brian Brohm

You want to talk about your Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx, how about the jinx of having a player segment on Bills.com. First, the star of “68 seconds with Langston Walker” gets cut. Now, the star of “Hanging with Hamdan” gets shown the door.

More importantly the Bills have a new quarterback. The Bills have reached a two-year agreement with Green Bay Packers practice squad quarterback Brian Brohm.

Brohm, a product of Louisville, was a second-round draft choice of the Packers in 2008. Brohm was drafted as a safety net for the unproven Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers, of course proved himself and Brohm ended up heading to the practice squad.

Coming out of college, Brohm strengths were considered to be accuracy and outstanding decision making. Brohm also scored a 32 out of 50 on the Wonderlic test (Great, another smart Bills player). He played in 44 games and had 33 starts. He went 24-9 as a starter. He passed for 71 touchdowns and 24 interceptions.

The signing also puts the final nail in the coffin for Trent Edwards. If Fitzpatrick struggles (which he will), the Bills will more than likely give Brohm a shot at the starting job.
