Brian Michael Bonner (born April 13, 1984 in Taft, Texas) is a Canadian football safety who is currently playing for the Edmonton Eskimos. He was signed by the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He played college football at Texas Christian.

Early yearsEdit

Bonner attended A.C. Jones High School where he earned a total of nine letters (four in football, four in track and one in basketball). He played Quarterback in football, recording 3,180 passing yards and 2,477 rushing yards in his career. As a senior, he was named All-South Texas Quarterback and Offensive Player of the Year by the Victoria Advocate. He was offered football scholarships at Georgia Tech, Houston and SMU but elected to play at TCU.

College careerEdit

During Bonner's first two years at TCU, he saw little action. He redshirted in 2003 to make the transition from Quarterback to Safety, and was used sparingly in 2004. In 2005, Bonner led the team with four interceptions, two of which came in a win against Colorado State, which clinched the 2005 Conference Championship. As a junior in 2006, he was named First-team All-Conference as a Punt Returner and Second-team All-Conference as a Safety.

In 2007, Dave Campbell's Texas Football selected Bonner to their 2007 Preseason All-Texas College Team.

While at TCU, Bonner was a Communications major with an emphasis in Human Relations.
