Ravens | Team intends to keep J. Brown

Aaron Wilson, of the Carroll County Times, reports the Baltimore Ravens intend to keep restricted free-agent OG Jason Brown with a one-year tender offer. "We will put the proper tender on him," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said Friday, Feb. 15. "Once that's done and we get into free agency, the option is there to extend him to a long-term deal and we will talk about it." The Ravens could use the low tender of $927,000 and receive a fourth-round draft pick in return for the corresponding round Brown was drafted in if another team signed him and the Ravens opted not to match the deal. The Ravens could use the second-round level of compensation, which costs $1.47 million; the first-round compensation of $2.017 million; or the maximum compensation of a first-round pick and a third-round pick for $2.562 million. The Ravens are expected to assign Brown the second-round tender.
