Jacob Levi Brown (born March 11, 1987) is a Canadian football quarterback that is currently playing for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Brown last played for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League, playing 4th string quarterback. He was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He played college football at Troy.

College career

Brown played for the University of Richmond from 2005-2006. He only started three games at Richmond, and after the 2006 season, transferred to Troy University. After redshirting during the 2007 season, Brown started in 2008 with the Trojans. He has many Trojan passing records. In 2009 he broke the Troy and Sunbelt Conference record by passing for 4,254 yards. He finished second in the nation in passing yards in 2009, and Brown was the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year.

Professional career

Buffalo Bills

After much speculation that the Buffalo Bills were going to select a quarterback in the 2010 NFL Draft, Brown was made the newest Bills quarterback in the seventh round (209th overall). He was cut by the Bills September 4, 2010, on final cuts. The Bills opted to keep Brian Brohm as their third quarterback and Levi was not signed to the practice squad. However, following the release of Trent Edwards on September 27, Buffalo resigned Brown, and he served as the team's third quarterback.[1] He played in the late 4th quarter in the final game of the 2010 season and threw his first interception.

Brown was waived in final cuts prior to the 2011 season, after the Bills signed Brad Smith and Tyler Thigpen as Ryan Fitzpatrick's backup quarterbacks; because he spent most of the year as the third-string quarterback (a position that was not considered a part of the active roster until 2011), he was eligible for, and was placed on, the practice squad.

Brown was cut from the practice squad on September 13, 2011.

Saskatchewan Roughriders

On March 20, 2012, it was announced that Brown had been signed by the Saskatchewan Roughriders.[2] On June 17, 2013, it was announced that Brown has been released by the Saskatchewan Roughriders.[3]

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

On September 4, 2013, it was announced that Brown had been signed by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and added to their practice roster.[4]
