Former Browns & Ravens Orlando Brown Dead at 40

Orlando Brown is best known for assaulting ref Jeff Triplette after he inadvertently threw a flag that severely damaged his eye to the point he missed several years with the injury and ended up suing the NFL.

Brown made a successful comeback with the Ravens before retiring.  He was found dead this afternoon in his apartment..

Here are the details.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh announced Brown’s death at the beginning of his news conference with reporters on Friday afternoon. City police and fire officials confirmed that they were at the player’s home at the Harborview complex in South Baltimore.

Fire Department spokesman Kevin Cartwright said medics were called after the player was found unresponsive in his home in the 1200 block of Harbor Island Walk. Medics called police to the scene at about 11 a.m. as a matter of protocol, and police say there were no signs of foul play or any initial indications as to the cause of death. The state medical examiner will perform an autopsy.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Brown’s family and friends.
