Professional career

Bridge attended the 2015 NFL combine but was not selected in the 2015 NFL draft. He attended the rookie mini-camp of the Dallas Cowboys but was not signed.

Montreal Alouettes

He was selected by the Montreal Alouettes in the fourth round of the 2015 CFL Draft. On May 25, 2015, he signed a two-year contract with Montreal. On June 13, he played in his first game with the team, a preseason match against the Ottawa Redblacks. One of four QBs used in the game by Montreal, Bridge went 4 for 8, threw for 52 yards and a touchdown and drew praise from head coach Tom Higgins for his performance.

Bridge began the 2015 season as the Al's third QB on the depth chart. He made his CFL regular season debut on June 25, 2015 (Week 1 of the 2015 season), after injuries to Jonathan Crompton and Dan LeFevour. He completed 5 of 10 passes for 62 yards and one interception. He became the first Canadian quarterback to play in a regular season CFL game since Danny Brannagan in 2010. Bridge dressed as the back-up to fellow rookie, Rakeem Cato, in the following game and didn't get a chance to play until the last game of the season due to Cato's strong play and veteran players returning from injury. Bridge had his first career start on November 8, 2015 in an overtime loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He completed 21 of 30 passes for 220 yards and threw the first two touchdown passes of his career.

When Vernon Adams was signed by the Alouettes, Bridge was relegated to fourth-string status. However, with Adams and starter, Kevin Glenn, being injured, he dressed as the third-string quarterback for four of the Alouettes' first six games. He scored his first CFL touchdown during the opening week game against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on June 24, 2016. With Glenn, Cato, and Adams all healthy, Bridge was asked to take a pay cut, leading to him requesting his release following the sixth game of the season. On August 1, 2016, Bridge was released by the Alouettes.

Saskatchewan Roughriders

On August 8, 2016, Brandon Bridge worked out with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He officially signed with the team on August 10, 2016. In January 2017, the Riders traded away starting quarterback Darian Durant, moving Brandon Bridge into competition for the starting role for the 2017 CFL season. However, during the off-season the Riders added CFL veteran Kevin Glenn, former NFL Pro-Bowler Vince Young and Bryan Bennett. Both Vince Young and Bryan Bennett were released before the start of the season, leaving Bridge as the back-up quarterback behind Kevin Glenn.
