Report: Cardinals bringing Levi Brown back
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cardinals and offensive tackle Levi Brown agreed to terms on a five-year contract, bringing the inconsistent and somewhat controversial former first round pick back into the fold.
Schefter confirmed earlier reports suggesting the Cardinals and Brown were nearing a deal.
Hearing Cardinals are close to re-signing LT Levi Brown.could move to right side, depending on rest of off-season— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) March 15, 2012
Somers reported the announcement will likely come Friday.
Selected with the fifth pick in the 2007 NFL Draft out of Penn State, Brown has spent time at both tackle spots, with the last few seasons spent on the left side. He's had his share of struggles, but seemed to turn it on over the second half of the 2011 season.
So, even though the Cardinals released Brown on March 13 as a way to save cap room, they always maintained a desire to bring him back.
Where he will play along the line remains to be seen, as the team may decide to move him back to the right side or, perhaps, just leave him at left tackle.
