Chris James Redman (born July 7, 1977 in Louisville, Kentucky) is an American professional football player for the Atlanta Falcons. Redman, a quarterback, is once again playing for first-year National Football League head coach and former University of Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino, who was the Cardinals' offensive coordinator in 1998 when Redman had a breakout junior season at UofL. After being away from football from 2004-2006, except for a short training camp stint with the Tennessee Titans in 2005, Redman was signed by the Falcons on March 23, 2007, after Atlanta traded backup quarterback Matt Schaub to the Houston Texans in exchange for two second-round picks and an agreement to switch first-round picks for the 2007 NFL Draft. Redman began fall practice as the third-string quarterback, but moved to No. 2 on the depth chart after Atlanta's first preseason game.

NFL career

Redman's professional career began when he was selected in the third round (75th overall) of the 2000 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens. He was one of several quarterbacks selected ahead of Tom Brady. Redman, who earned a Super Bowl championship ring as a rookie third-string quarterback for the Ravens, spent four seasons with Baltimore (2000-03), playing in 10 games with six starts and completing 106 of 198 passes for 1,111 yards with seven touchdowns and five interceptions. His record as a starter was 3-3 before he was sidelined with a back injury in 2002.

On Oct. 6, 2002, Redman had arguably his best outing as a pro, completing 19 of 30 passes for 208 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in a victory at division-rival Cleveland on ESPN's Sunday Night Football. Making the story even sweeter was that Redman clearly outshined Browns starting quarterback Tim Couch, the No. 1 pick in the 1999 draft and a longtime rival of Redman's in high school and college.


Redman served as Baltimore's backup in 2003 after recovering from back surgery. In a Nov. 9, 2003, nationally-televised game at St. Louis, Redman replaced injured starter Kyle Boller during the game and was injured himself, suffering a torn labrum in his right (throwing) shoulder. The season-ending injury was not diagnosed until after the game.


After recovering from shoulder surgery in 2004, Redman was signed to play with the New England Patriots on Jan. 6, 2005, but he was waived on June 1. He was then signed by the Tennessee Titans on Aug. 23, 2005, but was waived on Sept. 4.

College career

Redman was a star at the University of Louisville. He completed his college career as the NCAA Division I-A career leader in passing completions (1,031) and attempts (1,679). His 12,541 career passing yards ranked third behind BYU's Ty Detmer (15,031 yards) and Louisiana Tech's Tim Rattay (12,746). Redman threw 84 touchdown passes and 51 interceptions and still holds virtually every single game, single season and career passing record at the school.


As a senior in 1999, Redman started every game and completed 317 of 489 passes for 3,647 yards with 29 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He became the first quarterback in I-A history to complete more than 1,000 passes in a career, and he matched the I-A record for most seasons (three) with at least 3,000 passing yards. Redman received the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award (named for the former University of Louisville and Baltimore Colts star), which is presented each year to the nation's top senior quarterback. Redman was the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year, guiding UofL to seven come-from-behind wins and helping the Cards make their second consecutive bowl appearance.


In 1998, under the guidance of Petrino and new Louisville head coach John L. Smith, Redman started 10 of 11 regular-season games as a junior and established Conference USA and UofL season records for attempts (473), completions (309), yards (4,042) and touchdowns (29) despite missing a game because of a knee injury. His 404.2 yards-per-game average was the fifth highest in I-A history. On Nov. 14, 1998, Redman torched East Carolina by completing 44 of 56 passes (with six touchdown passes) for 592 yards -- the 10th-best single-game yardage total of all time. The Cardinals had a huge turnaround from the season before, going 7-4 in the regular season and participating in a bowl game for the first time since 1993.


As a sophomore in 1997, Redman started all 11 games and shattered single-season school passing marks in attempts (445), completions (261), yards (3,079) and total offense (2,958). Louisville struggled to a 1-10 record and head coach Ron Cooper was fired.


Redman played in 10 games as a redshirt freshman in 1996, starting the final five, and earned Conference USA all-freshman honors after he threw for more than 1,700 yards. In his first legitimate college action, coming off the bench to replace injured starter Jason Payne, Redman amassed 325 yards and three touchdowns in Louisville's come-from-behind win at Michigan State.


High school career

Redman played at Louisville Male High School, where his father, Bob Redman, is the head coach. Chris helped lead the Bulldogs to the 1993 state championship in Class 4A (Kentucky's largest class at the time). He was a two-time all-state quarterback and Parade Magazine's National Player of the Year in 1994 after setting national high school records for most touchdown passes in a season (57) and most touchdown passes in a half (8, twice), the latter of which still hasn't been broken according to NFLHS.com. Established in 1856, Louisville Male High School in Louisville, Kentucky is the oldest public high school west of the Alleghenies. ...
