Though it’s still not clear who if anyone is running the show in Buffalo, someone had enough juice to land second-year quarterback Brian Brohm.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Bills have signed Brohm from the Packers’ practice squad.
Per the Journal Sentinel, the Packers matched the two-year deal that the Bills presented to Brohm.
And so ends the short stay of Brohm in Green Bay. At a time when plenty of Packers fans are carping about the performance of G.M. Ted Thompson, the fact that he officially has squandered a second-round pick from only a season ago will do nothing to close the pieholes of the Cheeseheads.
Only two years ago, Brohm was regarded as a possible top-five selection, with speculation that his former Louisville coach, Bobby Petrino, would reunite with his pupil via the high first-round pick that the Falcons were destined to secure.
Two years later, Petrino is long gone from the NFL. Brohm, who fell all the way to the bottom of round two in 2008, is now getting a second chance.
The prompt arrival of Brohm in Buffalo after the termination of coach Dick Jauron suggests that Jauron didn’t like Brohm. Surely the franchise didn’t make this decision in a day; our guess is that someone had been lobbying for the move, Jauron had been blocking it, and now that Jauron is gone, in comes Brohm.
