Berkeley Alum Omar Brown Promoted To Ravens Roster

Berkeley alum Omar Brown was moved up to the Ravens active roster on Wednesday where he'll take the place of CB Asa Jackson who was suspended 4 games. 

Brown, who went on to star at Marshall after his time with the Stags, went undrafted this season. But he turned heads after signing as a free agent with Baltimore when he had 5 turnovers for the team during the preseason. 

"We need a defensive back, so Omar will be the guy on that and he's ready to go," Head Coach John Harbaugh told the Ravens official website. "He's been practicing all year and we feel like he'll contribute for us, potentially in this game."

Brown, who has spent this season on the team's practice squad, is expected to contribute on special teams over the last few games of the season. 

"I knew once I got moved up that it was going to be a special teams role," Brown told the team's website. "I wasn't surprised by that, and that's a role I'm ready to take on."

"The practice squad really helped me with special teams because when I first got here, NFL special teams is not your typical special teams at the college level," Brown said. "It helped me understand special teams a little bit more."

"It's still a football game, don't go out there and overreact," he said. "Just go out there and do what you know how to do, what you've been taught to do."
