Former Flames' standout quarterback Mike Brown will be one of three Liberty alums looking to make their professional mark in the NFL this upcoming season with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Shortly after the conclusion of the 2012 NFL Draft in April, Brown signed a free agent contract with the Jaguars following a successful run at one of Jacksonville's weekend mini camps.

Brown joined an NFL franchise that has multiple Liberty ties. Rashad Jennings, a 2008 graduate of Liberty, was drafted by the Jaguars in the seventh round and the four-year NFL veteran will be vying for time once again at running back this upcoming 2012 season.

An additional Liberty connection followed Jennings this spring when former Flames wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Charlie Skalaski was named to head coach Mike Mularkey's coaching staff.

Brown finished up his career at Liberty as a two-time Walter Payton Award candidate. The quarterback posted 15 career games with 300 or more total offensive yards and completed his career ranked No. 3 in total offense (7,947 yards), No. 4 in total offensive plays (1,104) and No. 5 in total offense per game (180.6).

Recently, Flames Sports Network reporter Nick Pierce had a chance to catch up with Brown to talk with him about chasing his dream of playing football at the highest level.

Be sure to check back later this week on LibertyFlames.com when Pierce sits down with Chris Summers, Liberty's former All-America wide receivers who is currently on the roster with the Chicago Bears.
