Ravens Offer One-Year Contract to Brown

Could a Brown Return to Baltimore?

It appears the Ravens are trying to lure their 2005 fourth-round draft pick back to Baltimore.

The team made an offer to center Jason Brown, who is also drawing interest from several other teams, according to the NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora.

“Baltimore, which does not have much salary-cap room, made a conservative one-year offer to Brown,” wrote La Canfora.

Brown, who turns 29 next month, played four seasons in Baltimore before signing a reported five-year, $37.5 million deal with the St. Louis Rams in 2009. He has only missed two starts in the last five years.

After three seasons with the Rams, Brown was cut in a sweep of housecleaning moves made by new Head Coach Jeff Fisher. Brown has visited both the San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers, and both teams reportedly want to sign him.

For now, the 6-foot-3, 320-pounder will take his time in making a decision about which team he’ll sign with. He may wait until after the draft to make a final choice, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“Brown could still end up with the Ravens — he enjoyed his time with the team, and Baltimore needs a guard who can help replace Ben Grubbs (who left via free agency) and offer additional protection for aging center Matt Birk,” wrote La Canfora. “But Brown is seeing what the market will bear and taking his time mulling his options.”
