Kansas City Chiefs three-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. is ending his training camp holdout on Monday.
Brown Jr. and the Chiefs were unable to reach a contract extension by the mid-July deadline, but it was expected that he would “soon” sign his franchise tender. He will earn $16,662,000 on the franchise tag, which according to ESPN, represents the average of the top five salaries at his position.
The 26-year-old Brown spent the first three years of his NFL career with the Baltimore Ravens — securing Pro Bowl nods in 2019 and 2020 — before being traded to Kansas City in April 2021 and earning his third straight Pro Bowl honor last season.
The Oklahoma product joins the likes of Joe Thuney, Creed Humphrey, Trey Smith and Andrew Wylie along the Chiefs’ projected starting offensive line.
