developing.

The #Ravens are trading LT Orlando Brown to the #Chiefs, per me and @MikeGarafolo. A new blindside protector for Patrick Mahomes.

The outline of the deal is already in place. Brown said he wanted a long term extension from the team that trades for him and it wont be a hard deal to structure due to his age.

This is literally better than best case scenario and opens up the whole draft.

I'm chuffed at the news, and impressed at the negotiation. But I can't help feeling we don't want to underestimate Brown's, . . . whether it's dissatisfaction or ambition, who knows, role in this getting done.

If in the end it turns out that Brown COULD have been retained by the Ravens and it was solely Bruce Valanch's hard charging negotiation skills that forced it through, I'll admit I misread. But this seems a bit of the Ravens having an asset that was valuable to everyone but them, and BV IDed it and finessed it well.

Well, and a right guard.

I really don't want to see Wylie there in 2022.

IF for some reason it doesn’t work out, like it turns out he’s not a great fit, then you can move on and cut your losses of basically a mid 2nd round pick.

If it does work out, extend or tag him.
Couldn't disagree more. Not having an extension agreed to before the trade is finalized is fucking ridiculous. If there's any doubt that he isn't the long term answer at LT, don't make the fucking trade to begin with. It's even worse if Garofolo is actually correct and the Chiefs don't plan to open talks to extend him until after this year. That's how you end up completely resetting the market for a position.

Why would the Ravens do this? Amazing.

Wow, that's a big trade. If he's able to play the left side, I like it. Every tenth of a second extra that Mahomes has in the pocket is probably worth 50 points over the course of the season.

Best team wed have on paper in recent years possibly.
I wonder if we have reached out to Justin Houston...that would be great.

This makes Draft Day a lot less stressful to watch, IMO. Go get that stud WR with one of those 2 2nd rounders and LFG!

They are going to have to pay Lamar... so they moved Brown. Will likely draft his replacement... not a bad financial move on their part either in a deep OL class.

I'm figuring Allegretti or LDT will be there, assuming that Allegretti doesn't win the LG spot outright.
