Ravens add veteran linebacker Ricky Brown


OWINGS MILLS, Md. — As veterans trickled into the Owings Mills training facility to begin training camp, the Ravens have added an experienced linebacker by signing Ricky Brown.
The 28-year-old spent the last six seasons with the Oakland Raiders, playing in 58 games and making 13 starts. Brown is expected to contribute on special teams while adding depth at the linebacker position.
An undrafted free agent from Boston College in 2006, Brown spent a brief time with the New England Patriots last preseason before he was released in early September. He then re-signed with Oakland and spent most of last season on injured reserve while dealing with a concussion, playing in only three games.
Brown has made 102 tackles and forced three fumbles in his six-year career.
