The Baltimore Ravens have uncovered plenty of diamonds in the rough during the course of their franchise history. They’ve traded late-round draft picks for good young players, signed undrafted free agents who’ve developed into stars, and are always looking to give opportunities to prospects that they feel can contribute.

One player who Baltimore gave a chance to as an undrafted rookie was wide receiver Marlon Brown. He went the entire 2013 NFL Draft without hearing his name called, but signed with the Ravens hoping to prove himself and get a shot to make an impact. Brown did just that, making the team and stepping up when he was needed.

Brown posted a series of tweets on Twitter in what seemed like his official retirement announcement, and went out of his way to say how appreciative he was of the Ravens organization.

Over the course of his three years with Baltimore, Brown caught 87 passes for 891 yards and seven touchdowns. His seven scores all came in his rookie year, but he still stepped up when his name was called in every season he played for the franchise.

Brown also spent time with two other organizations, but never played in a game with them. It’s clear that the former wide receiver’s heart is forever with the Ravens, and there’s no doubt he’ll always be loved in Baltimore.
