NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the Ravens are open to trading the linebacker, according to a source informed of the situation. They have yet to begin a dialogue with any teams.
Brown appeared in 14 games as a rookie but was on the field for just 211 snaps, according to ProFootballFocus.com. He finished with 15 tackles, half a sack and one forced fumble.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has been rightly lauded for personnel victories through the years, but putting the 56th overall pick on the market 17 months after he was drafted counts as a swing and miss. We'll see what kind of value the Ravens might fetch for a young player with little on his professional résumé.
