It's a fresh start for Brian Brohm, and as far as he's concerned, that's a good thing.
His NFL career hasn't taken the path he envisioned coming out of the University of Louisville. But the bottom line remains the same. The Trinity High School graduate has a shot at being a starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills.
There have been encouraging signs for Brohm in his competition with Trent Edwards and Ryan Fitzpatrick.
He is playing for a new coach, Chan Gailey, who has enjoyed success with quarterbacks.
Brohm is playing in the Bills' new offense, which he compares favorably to the system he ran under Bobby Petrino at UofL.
"I've had two years in the NFL to get used to everything and get myself prepared," the 24-year-old said. "I feel like I can fully compete for this starting job. I feel like I'm ready to take charge out there. We'll see what happens. But I feel like I'm at a position where I'll be able to put my best foot forward and make a legitimate run at the starting job."
