Former Ravens tackle Zeus Brown dies
Former Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Orlando "Zeus" Brown was found dead in his Baltimore condominium on Friday. He was 40.
Brown played 11 seasons in the NFL, including two tours of duty with the Ravens, with whom he finished up in 2005.
"It's disturbing, man," Ravens defensive end Terrell Suggs, who played three seasons with Brown, told the Carroll County Times. "We don't even know the cause of death. It's just sad. He was a beast on the field and a gentle giant off of it. It's just very unfortunate that he had to leave us so young. My heart goes out to his family."
Brown was perhaps most famous for an incident that occurred when he was with the Cleveland Browns, when referee Jeff Triplette's penalty flag was thrown in his direction and landed in his eye, causing damage.
Brown is survived by three sons. Our thoughts and prayers go out Brown's family.
