Free agent Jason Brown gets offer from Ravens

Free-agent C Jason Brown is drawing interest from several teams, including the Ravens, league sources said Friday.

Baltimore, which does not have much salary-cap room, made a conservative one-year offer to Brown, sources said.

Brown has a history with the Ravens. The team picked him in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft, and he played four seasons in Baltimore before signing a five-year, $37.5 million deal to join the Rams in 2009. Brown has visited the 49ers and Panthers and also talked with the Packers and Titans.

Brown could still end up with the Ravens — he enjoyed his time with the team, and Baltimore needs a guard who can help replace Ben Grubbs (who left via free agency) and offer additional protection for aging center Matt Birk. But Brown is seeing what the market will bear and taking his time mulling his options.
