It looked glaring that the Chiefs had been serene going to kind out their offensive line at some level this offseason, nevertheless it looked seemingly to happen at some level of the draft after they missed out on Trent Williams.
Kansas City did impress Joe Thuney in free agency to play guard, nevertheless serene had holes at each kind out spots after releasing Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher in February.
Rapoport reported in February that Brown requested a exchange from the Ravens due to he wished to play left kind out. Ronnie Stanley, who signed an extension in October via the 2025 season, is entrenched at that space in Baltimore.
The Chiefs offensive line used to be a wide talking level popping out of their 31-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Dapper Bowl LV.
Patrick Mahomes used to be forced bigger than any quarterback in Dapper Bowl historical past when the crew used to be compelled to initiate three backups on the road due to of injuries.
The Chiefs serene should safe a starting appropriate kind out, nevertheless they’ve a further 2nd-round possess this yr to make screech of if there is a participant they covet at that space.
Brown started 11 video games at left kind out closing season after Stanley’s season got here to an discontinue in Week 8 due to of an ankle ruin.
Brown is easiest 24 years passe and is in line for an enormous contract extension heading into the final yr of his rookie deal.
Garafolo eminent that the “notion for now” is to occupy Brown play out his original deal earlier than negotiating a attainable extension with the Chiefs.
Despite the truth that the Ravens lose a treasured member of their offensive line, Stanley’s return at left kind out may maybe presumably presumably serene manufacture them exact at that space in 2021. The 27-yr-passe used to be named to the All-Knowledgeable first crew in 2019.
Brown’s departure does leave a gap at appropriate kind out, though the Ravens appear to occupy a notion in space. ESPN’s Jamison Hensley reported in the wake of Friday’s exchange that Alejandro Villanueva is anticipated to impress with the crew, though a deal couldn’t be finalized except after the draft.

LT Ronnie Stanley

C Patrick Mekari
RG Kevin Zeitler
RT Alejandro Villanueva
That is serene beautiful lawful, as long as Villaneuva successfully converts to RT. 2020 third rounder Tyre Phillps performed some RG and RT closing yr, as successfully.
Villanueva spent the past six years with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He’s never missed a game in his NFL profession and has started 90 consecutive video games since Week 7 of the 2015 season.
The Ravens also occupy four picks in the principle three rounds, including No. 27 and 31 overall. They’re inclined to kind out wide receiver at some level, to permit them to either stand pat in a deep yr at the space or manufacture a hobble up if there may maybe be any individual who infatuates them.
