This Friday is the deadline for players who have been given the franchise tag to reach long-term agreements. Following that, Mike Garafolo from NFL Network has updated you on the Kansas City Chiefs’ negotiations with Orlando Brown.
Per Garafolo reports that the Chiefs could not reach a deal with Brown by Friday’s deadline.
Garafolo stated that LT Orlando Brown and the #Chiefs made one last attempt at a long-term agreement before the deadline, but failed to reach an agreement. Jammal Brown is Orlando’s mentor. I spoke with him. He stated that they were not comfortable with the lack security in the deal.
Tom Pelissero, NFL Network’s reporter, reports that Brown was offered a six-year contract in Kansas City with a significant signing bonus. Brown’s camp, however, didn’t believe the deal’s structure was secure.
Brown has yet to sign his $16.7million franchise tender. It is possible for Brown to sit out of training camp.
The #Chiefs and LT Orlando Brown made a final run at a long-term deal before this afternoon’s deadline but couldn’t reach an agreement. I spoke to Jammal Brown, who is serving as Orlando’s mentor. He said they didn’t feel comfortable with the lack of security in the deal.

Brown has been a Pro Bowler every season since 2019.
In 2021, the Chiefs purchased Brown with the hopes that he would be their offensive line’s anchor for a while. The two sides must reach a long-term agreement after the 2022 season.
