Brian Bratton (born July 31, 1982 in Wheeling, West Virginia) is a Canadian football wide receiver who is currently a free agent. He most recently played for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. Having played with the Alouettes since 2007, he is a two-time Grey Cup champion, after winning in 2009 and 2010. He played college football for the Furman Paladins from 2002 to 2005.
Bratton signed his first professional contract with the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League in May 2005 and attended the team's training camp. He was later released in September of that year.
Following his release from Atlanta, Bratton signed with the Baltimore Ravens in October 2005 and spent time on the team's practice roster.
After the 2005 season, Bratton was allocated to NFL Europe's Cologne Centurions in January 2006. While playing for Cologne, he started 10 games and caught 23 passes for 280 yards and two touchdowns. He was released in August, thereby terminating his contract with the Centurions.
Following his release from Nashville, Bratton signed with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League on February 27, 2007 to a one year plus an option contract. In his first season, he mainly played on special teams, returning punts and kickoffs. He recorded his first career touchdown on July 26, 2007 against the Toronto Argonauts on a 79-yard punt return. He achieved a career-high in touchdowns scored in the 2008 season when he scored seven receiving touchdowns.
He played in both of Montreal's Grey Cup victories in 2009 and 2010. In 2011, he recorded a career high in receiving yards with 675 yards to go along with five touchdowns, including the 20th scored of his career that year. At the end of the 2012 Eastern Final against the Toronto Argonauts, Bratton dropped what would have been the game tying touchdown with only 39 seconds left on third town. The Alouettes lost possession of the football and the Argonauts went on to win the 100th Grey Cup. Two weeks before entering free agency, Bratton was released on February 1, 2013 so that he could pursue offers from other teams.
In 2012 he won the Tom Pate Memorial Award for outstanding sportsmanship and because he had made a significant contribution to his team, his community and Association.
