After much speculation that the Buffalo Bills were going to select a quarterback in the 2010 NFL Draft, Brown was made the newest Bills quarterback in the seventh round (209th overall). He was cut by the Bills September 4, 2010, on final cuts. The Bills opted to keep Brian Brohm as their third quarterback and Levi was not signed to the practice squad. However, following the release of Trent Edwards on September 27, Buffalo resigned Brown, and he served as the team's third quarterback.
Brown was waived in final cuts prior to the 2011 season, after the Bills signed Brad Smith and Tyler Thigpen as Ryan Fitzpatrick's backup quarterbacks; because he spent most of the year as the third-string quarterback (a position that was not considered a part of the active roster until 2011), he was eligible for, and was placed on, the practice squad.
Brown was cut from the practice squad on September 13, 2011.
