The Kansas City Chiefs took a significant step forward in protecting star quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ blindside by taking over Pro Bowl from the Baltimore Ravens against Orlando Brown Jr. on Friday.

The Chiefs confirmed the deal that the outcome of a physical is still pending.

According to several reports, Kansas City traded its 2021 picks on the first round (# 31 overall), the third round (94) and the fourth round (136), as well as a fifth round selection in 2022 in exchange for Brown and a second in 2021 – round selection (No. 58) and a selection for the sixth round in 2022.

Brown, 24, will fill a large void along the offensive line for the Chiefs, who split from offensive tackles against Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher in the off-season.

Brown reportedly requested a deal from Baltimore this off-season after expressing his wish to remain as a leftist attacker.

In late January, Brown tweeted, “I’m a left device.”

Brown has started 42 games in both left and right tackles and has yet to miss one game since he was selected by the Oklahoma Ravens in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

He played for Ronnie Stanley in the left tackle after he sustained an ankle injury at the end of the season in Week 8 in 2020. Brown has been the team’s real tackle since joining the NFL.

Brown was a Pro Bowl selection in 2019 and 2020.
