Ravens cut LB Arthur Brown

Baltimore Ravens v New Orleans Saints

As the Baltimore Ravens continue to trim down their roster to the final 53 players, it appears that former second round pick Arthur Brown has not made the cut.

The Ravens selected Brown in 2013 after losing stalwart linebacker Ray Lewis to retirement, and believed in Brown’s ability to fill the void that was left in the middle of the defense. Those would have been big shoes to fill for any player, but unfortunately Brown never even came close.

He spent his first season on the depth chart behind Jameel McClain and Daryl Smith, and prior to his sophomore campaign, the Ravens made C.J. Mosley their first round pick. The Mosley pick was somewhat misunderstood at the time due to Brown and Smith already being on the roster, but as time has passed it looks more and more like a no-brainer.

Hopefully for Brown’s sake he’ll be able to put it all together somewhere else, but the Ravens front office doesn’t see it happening in Baltimore.
