Cardinals bring back Levi Brown on five-year contract


Just days after releasing him, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals have reached a five-year contract agreement with offensive tackle Levi Brown.

Much maligned throughout his Cardinals career, Brown did enjoy one of the better stretch runs of his tenure in 2011. Brown hasn’t missed a start since his rookie season, and he’s capable of playing both tackle spots.

With Brown and Jared Gaither returning to the teams they played for last year, the highest-rated offensive tackles left on the PFT Hot 100 list are Eric Winston, Marcus McNeill, Demetrius Bell, and Anthony Collins.
