Former Louisville star Brian Brohm is Hamilton's latest big-name QB addition.On a straight news level, it's hard to know just how much to make of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats' signing of quarterback Brian Brohm. The former Louisville pivot's signing was first reported by CardinalConnect.com Tuesday and passed along by Drew Edwards, then backed by a CP source, and Brohm himself later confirmed it on his Twitter account. Brohm's well-known from his time in the NCAA, the NFL and the UFL, but the past history of big-name QBs indicates he's far from a lock to succeed north of the border. His future performance depends on exactly how much of an opportunity he gets, and that's tough to predict at the moment; it's possible he might be the eventual successor to Henry Burris, in which case this is an incredibly notable moment, but it's far more likely that he'll follow the path of most QBs who come north, stick around for a few seasons as a backup and leave without making a major impact.
Brohm's signing does stand out in one way, though: it gives the Tiger-Cats an incredible collection of quarterbacks who will be recognized by NFL and NCAA fans. That's not necessarily a good thing. The Tiger-Cats now have Burris, Brohm, Dan LeFevour and Jeremiah Masoli at quarterback, and all of those players had notable failures south of the border. Here's a breakdown of each player:Read More »from Tiger-Cats add Brian Brohm, completing collection of well-known NFL/NCAA QBs
