Jaguars claimed LB Arthur Brown off waivers from the Ravens.

Brown was a 2013 second-round pick but never fit in the Ravens' 3-4 defense. He projects to be a much better fit in coach Gus Bradley's 4-3 scheme as an outside linebacker. It's a good landing spot for a fresh start.

Ravens waived/released ILB Arthur Brown, QB Josh Johnson, OG Vladimir Ducasse, LB Brennen Beyer, WR Daniel Brown, OT Blaine Clausell, DT Kapron Lewis-Moore, OLB Victor Ochi, LB Patrick Onwausor, C Matt Skura, WR Keenan Reynolds, and DB Julian Wilson.

Brown was the 56th pick in the 2013 draft. He was a favorite of the draft community, but Brown was never able to fit in the Ravens' 3-4 defense. He'd probably be a better fit in a 4-3. Ducasse was competing for the left guard gig.
Sep 3 - 4:10 PM

The Ravens are expected to keep third-year ILB Arthur Brown.

Brown has provided nothing to the team since being taken with the 56th overall pick in the 2013 draft, but the Ravens are having a hard time giving up on the former second-round pick. Odds are he'll be inactive more often than not.

Ravens ILB Arthur Brown has been working with the third-team defense at training camp.

Beat writer Jeff Zrebiec finds it hard to see how Brown makes the Ravens' 53-man roster. C.J. Mosley and Daryl Smith are locked in as starters, while Zach Orr and Albert McClellan have been the twos at camp. Brown doesn't excel on special teams and will likely hit the waiver wire come this time next month.

Ravens ILB Arthur Brown added 12 pounds over the offseason.

After playing at anywhere from 227 to 235 his first two years in the NFL, Brown is now up to 242 pounds. Brown, who weighed in at 241 at the 2013 Combine, has struggled to keep weight on in the past, but hopes a new diet will keep the extra pounds on for good. The 56th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, Brown is entering a make-or-break training camp with the Ravens.

Ravens ILB Arthur Brown isn’t a lock for the 53-man roster.

Brown was a weekly inactive last season, appearing in just four games. With C.J. Mosley and Daryl Smith returning as starters, Brown won't be guaranteed a spot behind special teams standouts Albert McClellan and Zach Orr. The Ravens could shop Brown for a late-round pick.

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said third-year ILB Arthur Brown "needs to find a way to get to the field."

Brown was rarely active for game days last season, appearing in just four games and making zero tackles. He played zero snaps on defense and wasn't a factor on special teams. Brown was the subject of trade rumors last summer and could be again this year, as he's still no higher than the No. 3 inside linebacker. At 6'0/235, Brown is attempting to gain weight without sacrificing his speed.

Ravens placed ILB Arthur Brown (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending his season.

A rare miss by GM Ozzie Newsome, Brown was active for just four of the Ravens' 16 regular season games and did not contribute on defense. He was the 56th pick in the 2013 draft. The Ravens may try trading Brown this offseason. The 24-year-old would be a better bet at outside linebacker in a 4-3 scheme.

Ravens declared ILB Arthur Brown, WR Michael Campanaro, CB Chris Greenwood, DT Terrence Cody, OL Gino Gradkowski, OL Ryan Jensen, and DT Casey Walker inactive for Week 16 against the Texans.

They're all healthy scratches. Brown, the 56th pick in last year's draft, hasn't been able to find the field all season behind Daryl Smith and C.J. Mosley. Brown may be a trade candidate in the offseason. He has talent.

Ravens ILB Arthur Brown was a healthy scratch for the fourth consecutive game in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

C.J. Mosley has been an every-down player at the weak-side spot, but UDFA Zach Orr is active over Brown for his special teams value. The Ravens are "extremely unlikely" to trade Brown despite placing him on the trading block earlier this month. Brown was the 56th overall pick in 2013.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Ravens ILB Arthur Brown has been the subject of trade discussions.

Brown is buried on the Ravens' depth chart after losing his starting job to rookie C.J. Mosley. He played zero defensive snaps in Week 1, and doesn't contribute on special teams. Brown has tons of talent though, so it makes sense teams are interested. The linebacker-needy Cowboys could make sense as a landing spot.

Ravens ILB Arthur Brown has "slid down the depth chart" since the beginning of training camp.

Last year's second-round pick is definitely behind Daryl Smith and first-rounder C.J. Mosley, and it sounds like Brown has fallen behind Josh Bynes and perhaps Albert McClellan as well. Brown reportedly excels in space, but too often gets enveloped amongst bodies. He's going to be a special teamer in 2014.

Ravens second-year ILB Arthur Brown bulked up over the offseason.

Brown weighed 241 at the 2013 Combine and is listed at 235 on the Ravens' website. He's competing with first-round rookie C.J. Mosley for the starting job next to Daryl Smith, but is expected to lose out and operate as a nickel linebacker. Most of Brown's contributions will come on special teams.
