Patrick Mahomes Weighs in on Chiefs LT Orlando Brown Jr.’s Contract Situation



With summer break officially underway for the Kansas City Chiefs, the next noteworthy date on Kansas City’s calendar is the deadline to get a new deal done with starting left tackle Orlando Brown Jr.



Since they franchise tagged Brown on March 7, the Chiefs have until July 15 to come to terms on a new deal with him, otherwise, he will have to play the 2022 season on the franchise tag, which will come with a $16.6 million cap hit.Head coach Andy Reid expressed his confidence that Kansas City’s front office will strike a deal with Brown.



“I’m not doing a whole lot of conversing with him, but [G.M.] Brett [Veach] and his crew are,” Reid said in his press conference on June 16. “And so as long as they’re talking — these things don’t ever happen overnight. That’s not how it works. So they’ll work through it. And I know both sides will handle it the right way and come to a spot that’s good for both Orlando and the team.”


The man whose blindside Brown protects on the football field, quarterback Patrick Mahomes also shared his thoughts on Brown’s contract situation.
