Ravens notes: Same number, different role for former Raven Arthur Brown

Arthur Brown is wearing the same No. 59 with the Jacksonville Jaguars that he did with the Ravens. He's just playing a different position.

The Ravens' second-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft, Brown was scooped up by the Jaguars after the Ravens waived him as part of final roster cuts on Sept. 3. Drafted by the Ravens as a middle linebacker, Brown is being used by the Jaguars on the outside, where he is backing up Dan Skuta.

"We're trying to speed up his learning as far as transition for the defense," Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Wednesday on a conference call with Baltimore media. "He's playing more of an outside linebacker spot for us on the line of scrimmage. So that's been a change for him. We felt like he could learn that the quickest and then also get him active on special teams. He's done a really, really good job."

With the Ravens, Brown played no defensive snaps in 2014 and just 10 last year. He was let go before the season after falling behind Zachary Orr and Kamalei Correa on the depth chart.

A day after he was waived by the Ravens, converted wide receiver Keenan Reynolds cleared waivers and is expected to return to the team's practice squad.

End zone

The Ravens announced that they'll wear a CB decal on their helmets for the rest of the season in honor of former defensive line coach Clarence Brooks, who died last Saturday after battling stomach and esophageal cancer. … Harbaugh turned 54 on Friday. "I took a lot of heat in the meeting this morning from the fellas," he said. "We have a lot of fun around here and we always celebrate everybody's birthday. I couldn't escape that today as much as I wanted to."
