The Kansas City Chiefs have just completed a trade with the Baltimore Ravens for OT Orlando Brown. Baltimore lands the Chiefs’ first round pick in next Thursday’s NFL Draft, along with two future picks in ’22 and ’23.
Provided this deal makes it through physicals, the Chiefs should be able to protect star quarterback Patrick Mahomes and dominate the AFC (again).

Now the Ravens have two first round picks in the first round this year. Not sure what else they gotta do to get 2019 MVP Lamar Jackson a playoff win, but those picks should help. Baltimore really has the ammunition to make any roster move imaginable now.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Orlando Brown is now expected to pursue a contract extension with the Chiefs. I just wish someone could explain to me how the Chiefs pay all these guys after forking over half a billion dollars to Mahomes. But in all seriousness, if Mahomes has time, the rest of the NFL is in trouble. At least they’re attempting to fix some of those roster flaws (even if they were mostly injury related).
