Chefs left tackle Orlando Brown The younger was not on the pitch during the team’s mandatory mini-camp this week as he and the club continue to work on a potential new contract for him.

While Kansas City used the franchise tag on Brown, the left tackle has yet to sign a franchise bid, meaning he is technically not under contract and therefore not required to be at minicamp.

Head coach Andy Reid throughout the offseason expressed confidence that both sides could agree. When the mini-camp concluded on Thursday, Reid confirmed this position.

“I don’t talk to him very much, but [G.M.] Brett [Veach] and his team,” Reid said at his press conference. “And so, while they are talking, these things never happen overnight. It doesn’t work that way. So they can handle it. And I know that both sides will handle it the right way and come to the conclusion that this is good for both Orlando and the team.”

The Chiefs acquired Brown from the Ravens in April 2021. If Brown and the Chiefs do not come to a long-term agreement by the July 15 deadline, Brown will make $16.66 million from the one-year deal.

Brown was selected for his third straight Pro Bowl last year after starting in 16 regular season games, missing one game with a calf injury.
