PITTSBURGH (AP) — It’s not exactly a homecoming for Levi Brown, but when the Pittsburgh Steelers acquired the massive offensive tackle in a trade with Arizona, he wasn’t necessarily coming to unfamiliar surroundings.
A seven-year veteran, and the fifth overall selection by the Cardinals in 2007, Brown played at Penn State and worked for Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley when he held that same role at Arizona.
“I’m definitely glad to come out here and get a fresh start,” the 6-foot-6, 324-pound Brown said Monday after his first practice. “(And) I welcome the change of scenery, (but) I’ve been here before. Pennsylvania is not new to me, but it’s definitely a change of atmosphere, as far as the team is concerned. So, I’m excited and ready to go out here and help turn this thing around.”
Pittsburgh (0-4) will take on the New York Jets Sunday.
