Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD - — Jeff Barker

The Ravens have hired a new gen­eral coun­sel — a 31-year-old with Mary­land roots who coun­seled NFL team ex­ec­u­tives as a mem­ber of the league’s man­age­ment coun­cil.

Bran­don Etheridge be­comes the team’s first gen­eral coun­sel since 1999. The team de­cided to re­store the in-house po­si­tion han­dling its le­gal work.

Etheridge, who played football at Yale Univer­sity, was born in Bal­ti­more. He was raised in Prince Ge­orge’s and Howard coun­ties and at­tended the McDonogh School dur­ing grades four through 12.

Work­ing for the man­age­ment coun­cil, Etheridge ad­vised team of­fi­cials on the col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing agree­ment, player con­tracts, dis­ci­pline and health care, the Ravens said. He also rep­re­sented teams in ar­bi­tra­tion pro­ceed­ings and ad­vised on em­ploy­ment-re­lated le­gal is­sues.
