Brown signed as a free agent with the Lions on May 17, 2011 after attending the club's free agent camp in Vegas that spring.
2013: Another solid year for Tim in 2013 and despite dressing for just 13 of the club’s 18-game regular season slate, he still finished atop the club’s combined yards category with 1,989 which was fourth in the CFL. He led the league with two return TDs including a 125-yard missed field goal return and a 97-yard kickoff return TD which was also the first by a Lion since 2010. Tim led the CFL in kickoff return yards with 1,221 and was third in punt returns with 467 yards.
2012: Another standout campaign for Brown as the speedy return man once again led the West Division with a career-best 2,687 all-purpose yards. A West Division All-Star, he ranked in the top four in punt, kickoff and missed field goal return yards and added another 305 yards from scrimmage backing up Andrew Harris. Tim’s season highlight was a pair of punt return touchdowns including an 81-yard effort vs Hamilton on Jul 6/12. His total of 1,380 all-purpose yards in the second half of the season was a league high on his way to being named the West Division’s nominee for Most Outstanding Special Teams Player.

2011-2013: Tim has enjoyed three strong seasons with the Lions, logging 45 regular season games and recording two seasons as the West Division’s leader in combined yards (2011-12). He now has five kick return touchdowns and is the Lions’ all-time leader in that scoring category. He is one of only eight Lions to ever lead the West in combined yards and his 2012 total of 2,687 is the second-highest in club history. His 6,693 combined yards total is the 11th highest in club history despite just 45 appearances; his kick return total of 5,852 yards ranks third all-time on the club.
2008-2010: One of the top players in the Indoor Football League during his tenure, Brown enjoyed back-to-back championship seasons with the Billings Outlaws. In the 2010 title game, Brown earned 125 all-purpose yards in the win over Sioux Falls. Brown began his IFL career with Sioux City Bandits late in the 2008 season.
2004-2006: After transferring to Temple University from City College in San Francisco, the speedy back out of Stockton, California spent two seasons rushing for the Owls, running for 1,163 yards on 290 carries with four touchdowns.
He also caught 66 passes for 417 yards and a major. Tim accounted for one-third of Temple’s offence in 2006 with 731 rushing yards and 218 receiving yards.
Tim resides in California during the offseason where he works with autistic schoolchildren. He has been playing football since the age of 10 and notes his sophomore season at City College when he won a state championship as his biggest football memory to date prior to 2011’s championship season with the Leos. While at Temple University, Tim was a Kinesiology major.
When not spending time with his extended family, you’ll find Tim at the movies or catching up on his favourite TV shows Smallville, The Game and Martin. Tim is a big Jamie Foxx fan when it comes to music preferences and lists The Purpose of a Driven Life as his favourite book.
