Ravens release Orlando Brown

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (March 16, 2006) -- The Baltimore Ravens have released offensive tackle Orlando Brown, who still has designs of extending a career interrupted for three years by a serious eye injury.

The move will save Baltimore money against this year's salary cap.

Known as "Zeus" because of his size, the 6-foot-7, 365-pound Brown signed a five-year contract in 2004.

He was placed on injured reserve in December after injuring his back in a car accident. He started nine games, but eventually lost his job to Tony Pashos after rotating during the first half of the season.

Before rejoining the Ravens in 2003 after a three-year absence from the league, Brown received a multimillion dollar settlement from the NFL to settle a personal injury lawsuit. In 1999, he was struck in the eye by a referee's penalty flag while playing for the Cleveland Browns.
