  Buccaneers | Brett Ratliff added to practice squad    Wed Dec 7, 12:10 AM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers worked out free-agent QBs Levi Brown (Bills) and Brett Ratliff (Browns) Tuesday, Dec. 6. They ended up adding Ratliff to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: The Bucs are looking for another QB after adding Rudy Carpenter to their active roster last week. Ratliff has bounced around the league, but is a strong armed QB who has a gunslinger's mentality.

  Bills | Levi Brown cut from practice squad    Wed Sep 14, 11:32 AM

The Buffalo Bills have released QB Levi Brown from their practice squad.

Footballguys view: Brown has little upside as a developmental QB. The Bills finally figured that out and are moving on. He'll have trouble catching on with another team.

The Buffalo Bills signed WR Kamar Aiken, QB Levi Brown, TE Mike Caussin, DL Lionel Dotson, DL Michael Jasper, DB Joshua Nesbitt and C Michael Switzer to the practice squad Sunday, Sept. 4.

Footballguys view: Brown is a favorite of the staff in Buffalo and sticks around as a developmental prospect behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tyler Thigpen.

  Bills | Make roster moves to get to 53    Sat Sep 3, 06:02 PM

The Buffalo Bills have released LS Danny Aiken, WR Kamar Aiken, QB Levi Brown, FB Jehuu Caulcrick, TE Mike Caussin, LB Antonio Coleman, CB Reggie Corner, WR Craig Davis, DE Lionel Dotson, DB Sidney Glover, C Geoff Hangartner, LB Brandon Hicks, OG Cordaro Howard, DT Michael Jasper, DE T.J. Langley, CB Doyle Miller, TE Shawn Nelson, DB Joshua Nesbitt, WR Naaman Roosevelt, C Michael Switzer, T Jason Watkins and OL Mansfield Wrotto. The team waived injured SS Jon Corto (undisclosed), WR Felton Huggins (concussion), LB Jammie Kirlew (undisclosed) and OT Ed Wang (shoulder). The team also placed RB Bruce Hall (undisclosed) on Injured Reserve, ending his 2011 season.

Footballguys view: Buster Davis is officially a bust on two teams now as he couldn't make the Bills roster after they let Lee Evans go in a trade.

  Bills | Tyler Thigpen working as No. 2 QB    Thu Aug 4, 08:45 PM

Buffalo Bills backup QB Tyler Thigpen worked as the team's No. 2 quarterback during 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 team workouts Thursday, Aug. 4. QB Levi Brown worked with the third-string offense and the team used QB/WR Brad Smith at times, too.

Footballguys view: Thigpen had a good run as Chan Gailey's QB in Kansas City back in 2008, so if he finds the field this year by way of Ryan Fitzpatrick injury or failure, he'll be a good sleeper.

  Bills | Plan to pick up two more QBs in free agency    Thu May 12, 01:45 PM

Joe Buscaglia, from WGR 550 in Buffalo, reports Bills GM Buddy Nix commented in a recent interview that the team is looking to add more depth at the QB position. "We're going to camp with four quarterbacks, there's bound to be two more out there somewhere," Nix said. "We're going to try to get a veteran in free agency that can back up [Ryan] Fitz[patrick], and in case he gets hurt, he can finish a game or he can start a game and give us a chance to win."

Footballguys view: The Bills currently only have Fitzpatrick and second-year developmental QB Levi Brown on the roster. Buffalo could make a play for guys like Tyler Thigpen, Rex Grossman, or Charlie Frye in free agency.

The Buffalo Bills have declared LB Aaron Maybin, DL Alex Carrington, LB Antonio Coleman, OT Cornell Green, OT Ed Wang, DL John McCargo, QB Levi Brown, CB Terrence McGee inactive for Week 8.

Footballguys view: Maybin is a healthy scratch halfway into his second season. It looks like the Bills whiffed on one of their first round picks in 2009.

  Bills | Levi Brown re-signs    Tue Sep 28, 03:20 PM

The Buffalo Bills re-signed QB Levi Brown to an undisclosed deal Tuesday, Sept. 28, according to The Associated Press. Brown will be the third-string quarterback behind QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Brohm.

Footballguys view: Brown is a developmental quarterback with limited upside. He'll hold a clipboard for the Bills behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Brohm.

  Bills | Plan on re-signing Levi Brown    Mon Sep 27, 01:14 PM

The Buffalo Bills are planning to re-sign free-agent QB Levi Brown, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Brown is a developmental quarterback with little upside. Our very own Cecil Lammey watched Brown at the Texas vs The Nation Game earlier this year in El Paso and was not impressed with the rookie's skill set. Brown has accuracy issues if the pass is over 10 yards, and he tends to feel the rush even when no rush is there. He's going to hold a clipboard behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Brohm.

  Bills | Brian Brohm does not play in preseason opener    Sat Aug 14, 11:17 AM

Buffalo Bills QB Brian Brohm did not see action in the team's preseason opener, according to Allen Wilson, of The Buffalo News. QB Trent Edwards started the game, followed by QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Levi Brown. Nothing should be read into the move with respect to the quarterback competition. Brohm is still very much in the running for the starting job, head coach Chan Gailey said, and he will be in the rotation in the team's next preseason game.

  Bills | Levi Brown contract update    Thu Jun 10, 05:08 PM

  Bills | Arthur Moats, Levi Brown signed    Thu Jun 10, 01:54 PM

The Buffalo Bills have signed sixth-round draft choice LB Arthur Moats and seventh-round draft choice QB Levi Brown, reports Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Levi Brown was a favorite sleeper quarterback for some in the media, but we feel that he's nothing more than a career backup at best. Our very own Cecil Lammey watched Brown up close during the week of practice for the Texas vs The Nation Game earlier this year and was not impressed. Brown struggled to make smart decisions with the football, and would scramble too soon instead of continuing through his progressions.

  Bills | Brian Brohm first in QB rotation Saturday morning    Sat Jun 5, 04:18 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Brian Brohm received the first reps in seven-on-seven drills as well as 11-on-11 drills during morning practice Saturday, June 5, reports Mark Gaughan, of The Buffalo News. He was followed by QB Trent Edwards, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and QB Levi Brown.

Footballguys view: More quarterback rotation for the Bills, and it's no surprise Brohm is getting a shot to run the first team. Trent Edwards has the most experience out of this group, but he has a tendency to get injured quite a bit. Ryan Fitzpatrick is the smartest quarterback on the roster, but he's limited talent wise. Brian Brohm was highly thought of after his junior year in college at Louisville with head coach Bobby Petrino. He's failed to live up to that potential in the pros, but might have the highest upside of any of the quarterbacks on the Bills roster. This quarterback competition should extend through the end of training camp.

  Bills | Levi Brown focusing on playbook    Wed May 12, 04:11 AM

Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports Buffalo Bills rookie QB Levi Brown is busy studying his playbook while at home in Tennessee.

Footballguys view: Brown is a favorite sleeper quarterback of some NFL analysts, but we're not buying it. Our very own Cecil Lammey saw Brown up close during the week of practice at the Texas vs The Nation Game earlier this year in El Paso and came away unimpressed. He can pick up yards with his feet when the play breaks down, but it's much easier to do that in the Sun Belt conference than it is to do in the NFL. His arm strength is suspect, and his release needs to be improved. Despite playing at Troy his numbers weren't out of this world, and coming from a spread offense he'll have to learn how to run a pro-style system. Levi Brown is a practice squad quarterback with limited upside.
