Brigance will hold a celebration Tuesday, May 16, on the 10th anniversary of a day that forever changed his life.

Brigance serves as senior adviser to player engagement for the Ravens, a job he started in 2004. In addition to assisting players in each phase of their career, Brigance is a source of motivation.
