The Ravens today agreed to a four-year deal with linebacker Arthur Brown, leaving them with just two unsigned picks.
Brown, a standout at Kansas State, was the second of the Ravens' 10 picks in last month's draft. The only two that have not signed are first-rounder Matt Elam, a safety from the Florida, and third-rounder Brandon Williams, a nose tackle who played at Missouri Southern.
Brown's deal will be worth roughly $3.55 million and include a signing bonus of $964,896.
The Ravens traded their second-round pick, a fifth-rounder and a sixth-rounder to the Seattle Seahawks to move up six spots and take Brown.
At 6 feet and 242 pounds, Brown was a two-time first-team All-Big 12 selection and the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year last season. After transferring from Miami, Brown started all 26 games in his two-year Kansas State career and led the team in tackles in both seasons.
However, Brown did have a recent setback, undergoing surgery to remove a sports hernia. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said yesterday that Brown had the surgery about two weeks ago and it requires a four-to-six week recovery time. That means that Brown should be ready to go in time for training camp.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
