Thursday, March 13 - More than three years after his career was nearly ended by an errantly-tossed penalty flag that struck him in the eye, offensive tackle Orlando Brown is back in the NFL, with ESPN.com learning that he has agreed to a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens. Brown, 32, was sought by four other teams and sources said he turned down an offer from the Minnesota Vikings that would have paid him nearly triple what he will earn from the Ravens in 2003. The one-year deal will afford Brown with an opportunity to re-establish himself in the league and then become a free agent next spring.
