Orlando Brown Jr. lands with one of the Chiefs’ biggest rivals

Orlando Brown Jr. was cleared to walk by the Chiefs and now the offensive tackle has landed with one of Kansas City’s biggest rivals, the Bengals.

The market for offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. was a bit perplexed when NFL free agency officially began on Wednesday. The Kansas City Chiefs chose not to franchise their left tackle and seemingly replaced him by signing Jawaan Taylor. Additionally, there hadn’t been much word about where Brown could potentially be heading or which teams were interested.

Now he has a landing spot and a new deal, and it’s one that will only make the budding rivalry between Joe Burrow’s Cincinnati Bengals and Patrick Mahomes’ Chiefs all the more sassy.

According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the Bengals sign Brown to a four-year, $64.092 million deal with a monstrous $31 million signing bonus and, as noted, much of the money being preloaded. in the contract.

This will surely add even more fire to the budding rivalry between the Chiefs and the Bengals as he will now protect Burrow instead of Mahomes. However, Cincinnati was able to give Brown money and, more importantly, the job he wanted.

Much had been said in recent days about many NFL teams considering Brown a right tackle. The veteran remained adamant, however, that he wanted to play on the left side, which Mike Garafolo reports is the plan in Cincinnati.

Brown is a definite upgrade for the Bengals as they could now place Jonah Williams or La’el Collins inside to guard alongside Alex Cappa and Ted Karras inside, making the line deeper and overall stronger. This is key to the long-term success of Burrow and this attack.

And that should only make future matchups against the Chiefs even more fun to watch.
