Brad Sorensen is a retired professional football quarterback. He was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He was released on August 29, 2014. He then was briefly with the Tennessee Titans before being re-signed with the Chargers practice squad in December 2014. Although he was released again on October 1, 2015, the Chargers re-signed him to their practice squad on October 24 and was promoted to active roster on December 12, 2015. On December 14, Sorensen was waived. On December 16th he was re-signed by the Chargers. On December 17, he was once again waived. He was later re-signed on December 18 to the practice squad.

On August 20, 2016, Sorensen signed with the Minnesota Vikings, but released on August 29. He was re-signed after the starting quarterback was injured. He was released on September 3, 2016, when the Vikings traded for a new quarterback.

Sorensen spent the 2009 season as a redshirt at Brigham Young University. To get more play time, he played one season at San Bernardino Valley College, where he earned first-team all-Foothill Conference honors after completing 177 of 296 passes for 2,280 yards and 17 touchdowns with just four interceptions. He earned the conference’s offensive player of the week an astounding seven times during the season. He then transferred to Southern Utah University.

At SUU, he earned the FCS Elite Quarterback Award from College Football Performance Awards, second-team all-Big Sky honors and all-America recognition from the College Sports Journal. He was a Payton Award finalist. He has the school's all-time marks in passing yards (9,445) and touchdown passes (61). He also became the school's first 3,000-yard passer in a season, which he did all three years he played at SUU.

After leaving the NFL in 2016, Sorensen went into the financial services industry. He served a mission to Spain for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Sorensen is the older brother of former BYU Cougar safety, and current Kansas City Chief, Daniel Sorensen.
