Orlando "Zeus" Brown, Tackle Best Known For Suing The NFL After Taking A Penalty Flag In His Eye, Dead At 40

Brown, who spent most of his career with the Ravens, got hit with Jeff Triplette's flag while playing for the Browns in 1999. He missed nearly four seasons and received a $15-20 million settlement from the NFL.

He was found dead at his home today, with no signs of foul play, police said. His family became concerned after they hadn't seen him for a few days.
