Orlando Brown found dead at 40

I saw him singlehandedly cost the Ravens a playoff game one year vs the Titans. Good lineman and it's a bummer he's gone, but usually when you've heard of a lineman and can remember specifically who he is, it's not usually for the best of reasons.

Not true at all. You remember plenty of good linemen for being good at what they did.

It's remembering inferior linemen that isn't for the best of reasons moreso than anything, but that could go for just about any position to some degree.

Sorta off topic: Is there a procedure for how officials throw the yellow penalty flag?

The only two procedures I know of is that you throw it in the direction of the foul if the play is to continue, and straight up in the air if its a foul that blows the play dead such as a false start penalty. Beyond that you can do whatever the hell you want so long as it doesen't interfere with play. Just about the only thing the NFL checks for as far as flag throwing is that the offical has arms in order to throw the flag. I know an NFL offical and can tell you how concerned they are with other topics, but that's not one of them.

What happened with Orlando Brown was just a freak accident. I don't think there was any chance the offical was trying to injure him. If there was malice intent he could be sued, but the NFL would cover any incident like this were recklessness was displayed on the part of the offical but no malice was intended.
