Arthur Brown Jr. is an American football linebacker and is currently a free agent. He was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He played college football at Kansas State, where he earned All-American honors. Brown has also played for the Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets, and Seattle Seahawks.
Brown initially attended the University of Miami, and played for the Miami Hurricanes football team. He struggled during his freshman year despite being Miami's top-rated recruit. Hurricanes coach Randy Shannon decided to move Brown from weakside to inside linebacker for his sophomore season, saying he began flourishing in the new role toward the end of the 2008 season. Brown left the Miami program in February 2010. Brown, along with his brother Bryce, were named in a report from Yahoo! Sports alleging that student-athletes, coaches and administrators were aware and received impermissible benefits from ex-booster and convicted felon Nevin Shapiro.
He subsequently enrolled at Kansas State University in May 2010, and became a member of the Kansas State Wildcats football team. Brown's first season at Kansas State was very productive as he had 95 tackles, 2 sacks and 1 interception. Brown also contributed some key plays during the Wildcats 10-2 season, one such play included getting an interception off Heisman winning quarterback Robert Griffin III to set up game-winning field goal as the Wildcats beat #15 Baylor Bears. He was the first player last season to pick Griffin, ending his streak at 110 passing attempts. Brown also had a 12 tackle game beating the Iowa State Cyclones as Kansas State finished the regular season 10-2. Brown was named Big 12 newcomer of the year, becoming the tenth Wildcat to do so and the fourth in the past five years.
In the 2012 season, Brown won the 2012 Big 12 Conference Defensive Player of the Year award, after registering 91 tackles, 2 interceptions (one was returned for a touchdown), six tackles for loss and one sack. He is the third Kansas State player to win the defensive player of the year award as named by the conference, after Mark Simoneau in 1999, and Terence Newman in 2002.
Projected a second-round selection, Brown was ranked as the No. 4 outside linebacker available in the 2013 NFL Draft. In the 2013 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens picked Brown after their star middle linebacker Ray Lewis retired. Brown underwent hernia surgery during the off-season a few weeks following the draft. Arthur was placed on injured reserve on January 1, 2015. On September 3, 2016, he was released by the Ravens. The Jacksonville Jaguars claimed Brown off waivers on September 4, 2016 but was released later that year. On January 4, 2019, Brown signed with the San Antonio Commanders of the AAF. On January 30, 2019, Brown was released by the Commanders as part of the final training camp cuts.
