Timothy Brown (born October 25, 1984) is a Canadian football running back and kick returner who is currently a free agent. He recently played for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. He signed with the BC Lions in 2011 and won his first Grey Cup championship that same season. In 2012, he was named a West Division All-Star and the West Division's Most Outstanding Special Teams Player. Brown played for four years with the Lions before he was released. He played college football for the Temple Owls.
After going undrafted, Brown signed with the Sioux City Bandits in 2008. He would later be traded to the Billings Outlaws. He played for three seasons with the Outlaws, winning two Indoor Football League championships in 2009 and 2010.
