Kyle Walters continues to make changes at the quarterback position with his Blue Bombers swinging a trade for Brian Brohm and releasing Justin Goltz today.
Walters sent a conditional pick in the 2015 CFL Draft to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for the rights to Brohm.
Brohm, a 6-foot-3, 230-pounder out of Louisville, joined the Tiger-Cats in 2013 playing in one preseason game, completing 5 of 10 passes for 110 yards before being injured.
Brohm has seen action in the UFL and NFL, originally drafted in the second-round, 54th overall in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers, serving as the club’s third string quarterback that season.
Brohm made his first NFL start for the Buffalo Bills in 2009 and also started a game for the Bills in 2010.
A college standout at Louisville (2004-2007), Brohm finished with the second most passing yards in school history (10,775) and threw for 71 touchdowns. Brohm led Louisville to their first-ever BCS bowl victory in 2007, winning the Orange Bowl against Wake Forest 24-13, and was named the game MVP.
