Report: Cardinals bringing Levi Brown back
It looks like Levi Brown isn’t going anywhere, after all.
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.

Selected with the fifth pick in the 2007 NFL Draft out of
Penn State, Brown has spent time at both tackle spots,
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
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
team may decide to move him back to the right side or,
perhaps, just leave him at left tackle.
