Ricky Brown just continues to find work in the NFL. Though he has never been a full time starter, he has been in demand his entire six-year NFL career. Now after being out most of last season with concussion related issues for the Raiders, the Ravens have signed the veteran reserve linebacker after a team tryout.

Brown was originally signed by the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Boston College back in 2006. He made the team as a reserve linebacker and special teams player and stuck for five seasons before the team let him leave as a free agent.

Brown signed with the Patriots and spent the preseason with the team but was released in the final cuts. The Raiders had planned to replace Brown's services with that of Travis Goethel but Goethel was lost for the season with a shoulder injury so when Brown was released by the Patriots, the Raiders brought him back.

Now the Raiders are again hoping Goethel can be the reserve middle linebacker which left Brown as the odd man out again.

Brown has played in 58 games for the Raiders with 13 career starts. His best seasons were in 2008-09 when he started all but one game in which he played at strongside linebacker. He started 11 of 12 games with 67 combined tackles, three passes defended and two interceptions.
