The NFL world is mourning the loss of former offensive tackle Orlando Brown, who passed away at the age of 40. Brown, who had stints with the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens, broke into the league under the tutelage of Bill Belichick in Cleveland.
Belichick offered up a statement in response to Brown's passing.
"I am extremely shocked and saddened to hear the news about Orlando Brown. Orlando improved as a player as much as anyone I have ever seen, as he went from being a defensive lineman at South Carolina State to becoming one of the game's top offensive tackles, when he sustained his unfortunate eye injury. Orlando was a true throwback player who loved football and was as tough as they come. Without question, Orlando was an integral part of the Browns turnaround during the mid '90s and he will be missed. I offer my deepest condolences to the Brown family."
Our condolences go out to Brown's family and friends.
