Bills sign QB Brohm off Packers’ practice squad

The Bills’ changes continue.

The Bills acquired QB Brian Brohm off the Packers’ practice squad, signing him to a two-year contract. The Packers matched the Bills’ offer to the 2008 second-round draft pick, but Brohm chose to go to Buffalo.

Brohm, once a highly regarded prospect, struggled with the Packers, losing a competition with 2008 seventh-round pick Matt Flynn for the No. 2 QB job behind Aaron Rodgers. Team sources said Brohm’s confidence plummeted and that really hindered his development.

Brohm made minimal progress this season, but he did show enough potential for the Packers to try to retain him. A league source said a change of scenery should help Brohm, although he is going into a chaotic situation.

Brohm is joining a team whose coaching staff is in flux with this week’s firing of Dick Jauron and likely will change during the offseason.

To make roster room for Brohm, the Bills released QB Gibran Hamdan, who had been with the team since 2007 but never played in a regular-season game.
