Congratulations to Orlando Brown.
You may remember Brown. He is a former NFL offensive lineman. When he was a member of the Cleveland Browns, he was viciously assaulted with a weapon by an official. The official used a loaded penalty flag to attempt to rob Brown of his eyesight, and his career.
Brown battled back. Fighting through the extensive rehab and psychological damage inflicted as a result of the attack. He even was picked up again years later by the Ravens.
Unfortunately, what seemed destined to be a long and successful career never panned out.
But, Brown has moved forward and is setting a prime example that life can begin after football. Even if that life after football is prematurely forced upon a player by a Caucasian referee with a 'weapon'.
Congratulations to Orlando Brown as his career as an entrepreneur kicks off with his opening of a Fatburger franchise in Columbia, MD. It is slated to open in August.
We wish him the greatest of success as he continues to attempt to recover his life from those that would have held him down.
