Brandon Bridge wasn’t drafted in this year’s NFL draft, but nobody signed him as a UFA. Luckily for him, he will be playing football, but not in the U.S. What some folks may not know about Bridge is that he is a fellow Canadian, born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada; as a teen, Bridge attended Mississauga (ON) St. Marcellnius high school. The Montreal Alouettes selected Brudge in the 4th round (number 31 overall) of the 2015 CFL draft; on May 25, Bridge signed a 2 year deal with Montreal. Bridge visited the Lions and the Cowboys, but failed to sign him. At least, though, Bridge will finally get to play football, but at home in Canada. Bridge originally began his college career at Alcorn State in 2010 and 2011, but transferred to South Alabama and sat out the 2012 season; in his tenure at Alcorn State, Bridge passed for 24 TD’s with 10 on the ground, and threw for 2718 total. In 2013, he played in 9 games completing 29/66 passes and throwing one TD, but also added 170 yards on 30 carries for one TD on the ground. As a senior last year, Bridge made 160/307 passes for 1,927 yards, 8 INT’s, and 15 TD’s with 297 yards on 101 attempts for 4 TD’s on the ground. One can only wonder if Bridge will have success in Montreal, and if he doesn’t, will he come back to the NFL?
*Authors note* I do apologize for listing him as signed by the Cowboys in my UFA draft tracker; he was invited to their rookie minicamp, but didn’t sign with them.
