Former Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns offensive lineman Orlando Brown was found dead in his home Friday morning, Baltimore police said. He was 40, according to the NFL's website.
Authorities said there was no sign of trauma or foul play.
Brown, nicknamed "Zeus," retired in 2005 and lived in Baltimore, where he was involved in the franchising of restaurants, according to NFL.com.
While he was with the Browns inÂ December 1999, a flag thrown by an official struck him in the eye and led to Brown suing the league.
@ anr...Does that stand for Another Nosey Redneck??? Hahaha.
@ HoustonSteve, ur right. You DO post idiot comments and u do a great job of it! Hahaha. U won't hook ME tho...
This man was a very caring, gentle GIANT and most likely died of natural causes. Those who knew him knew he was a great guy, so please show some respect on here....don't talk about him that way. May you rest in peace big guy.
Yea He used to shop in my store at Giant food in Bowie all the time. He was that and actually very funny...he was friends with one of the employees I worked with. Orlando was very down to earth I might add.
Absolutely, Orlando was a great guy! Class act, always stopping by to talk to kids, helping the community and being kind to everybody around him!
Orlando will be missed, I'm shock!
RIP big man!!!
to bad he died... he would have made a good pirate...
above, you are a dope.
He always kept an eye out for his opponents.
Al Sharpton is asked that everyone send him money in Orlando's memory.
