Default Ravens announce passing of Orlando Brown

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...orlando-brown/

Quote:
Orlando Brown, a mammoth offensive tackle who appeared in 129 games with the Browns and Ravens, has died. The Ravens announced his passing on Friday.

Brown was 40.

Six-feet, seven-inches and 360 pounds, Brown was nicknamed “Zeus.” And referee Jeff Triplette got a taste of Brown’s lightning bolts in 1999, after Triplette inadvertently hit Brown in the eye with the business end of a penalty flag. The small bean bag made its way into the opening in Brown’s facemask, prompting Brown to shove Triplette to the ground. Brown later filed a $200 million lawsuit, alleging that the injury ended his career.

In 2003, he made an unlikely comeback, rejoining the Ravens and starting 34 games over three seasons. In all, he played for the Browns from 1993 through 1995, the Ravens from 1996 through 1998 (after the moved from Cleveland), the Browns in 1999, and the Ravens from 2003 through 2005.

I was thinking the exact same thing when I read about this earlier. Unbelievable how fast time flies.
