Thirteen days after announcing he would play for the Canadian Football League's Saskatchewan Roughriders, former Temple running back/return specialist Matt Brown signed a contract Wednesday night with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The 5-foot-5, 165-pounder was able to join the NFL team since he never signed his contract with the Roughriders. Brown was scheduled to fly to Saskatchewan on Tuesday to sign it. However, he was unable to board the plane in Baltimore due to an expired passport.
While Brown was in Philadelphia Wednesday morning getting a new passport, his agent was contacted by the Bucs. So he flew to Florida to sign a contract with Tampa Bay instead.
