Cause of death still unknown for ex-Raven Brown

A Baltimore police spokesman says it will take some time to

determine the cause of death for former Baltimore Ravens offensive

tackle Orlando Brown.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Saturday there were no

obvious signs of trauma or foul play and no suspicious factors

surrounding Brown’s death. He says it may take weeks before test

results help determine the cause of death.

The 40-year-old Brown was found dead Friday at his home near

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Brown was a 360-pound tackle who in 1999 was accidentally hit in

the eye with a penalty flag and missed three seasons because of the

damage it caused.

He played 10 seasons in the NFL – four with the Cleveland Browns

and six with the Ravens.
