Former Temple running back Tim Brown is looking to restart his playing career in the Canadian Football League.
Brown signed with the BC Lions and will hope to earn a spot when training begins June 5.
"His change of direction is phenomenal," Lions player personnel coordinator Neil McEvoy told the Vancouver Sun. "You'd have trouble catching him in a phone booth. He's the type of guy we need - a returner/running back."
Brown's last season at Temple was 2006, when he ran for 731 yards on 182 carries with two touchdowns and also caught 33 passes for 218 yards.
