Former University of South Alabama quarterback Brandon Bridge – a 6’5″ 235-pound native of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada – has officially signed a free-agent deal with the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. Though it was announced on difference social media accounts over the weekend and earlier this week, the Dallas Cowboys released their official free-agent signings list on Wednesday making it official.

Bridge, after going undrafted in the 2015 NFL Draft last weekend, signed an agreement that will bring Bridge in for the Cowboys’ weekend rookie camp, which is slated to run Friday through Sunday.

In his lone season as a starter for USA, he completed 160-of-307 (52%) of his passing attempts for 1,927 yards while tying the single season record of 15 touchdowns. He also added 297 yards rushing and a team-high-tying four rushing touchdowns. He led the team with 2,224 yards of total offense and ranked ninth in the conference with 202.18 yards passing per game with a 115.76 pass efficiency rating.

After his performance against Georgia State where he rushed for 137 yards, a school record for a quarterback, and a touchdown on 15 attempts while also throwing for 126 yards and two touchdowns through the air, he was selected the Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Week.

Against Appalachian State, he threw for 339 yards, the second highest total in school history, with three touchdowns in the road victory. In his final appearance for the Jaguars in the schools first-ever bowl game he finished 20-of-37 for 279 yards and a touchdown while rushing for an additional 41 yards including a 15 yard touchdown in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl.

Though he was hampered by a nagging ankle injury for most of the season, he concluded his two-year career at USA among the top 10 in the school’s records in 10 statistical categories including third in total offensive yards (2,792), completions (189), yards passing (2,325), passing touchdowns (16) and pass efficiency rating (111.83).
