Levi Brown is not unaware. When he first re-signed a month ago, he mentioned his feeling of “unfinished business” in his reasoning of returning.
Then Monday, Brown reiterated that thought, pointing to that as the main reason he wanted to come back. The left tackle (he also repeated that he planned to be the left tackle despite speculation he might end up on the right) also acknowledged his “up-and-down career.”
Then Brown said what will be the quote to note for 2012: “I need to prove what I am capable of and set the record straight.”
It was interesting to hear Brown’s thoughts on passing on the chance for a fresh start. When it was suggested he could have gotten away from all the talk — OK, criticism — that has followed him in Arizona, Brown was realistic. “There are always outside opinions,” Brown said. “I’m sure if I would have gone somewhere else, someone else would have said the same things.”
It makes sense. In Arizona, his career continues. He’s already dealt with most of the slings and arrows. Going elsewhere just would mean a rehashing of everything, the draft vs. Adrian Peterson, the ups and downs. Now, it can be, in theory, setting the record straight.
