On Friday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs finally found their left tackle for the present (and likely future) by trading for Orlando Brown, Jr. in a major deal with the Baltimore Ravens. In return, the Ravens received a number of picks from the Chiefs, including their first round pick at No. 31 overall.

Given the tremendous impact of the deal, FanSided’s NFL editor Matt Verderame and I sat down to record a new episode of the Arrowhead Addict podcast to react to the deal. Brown’s addition to the Chiefs is a game-changer for a team who was already the favorite to win the AFC once again.

The Chiefs had only one major concern heading into the 2021 NFL Draft, which begins next Thursday, at left tackle. While they struck out on Trent Williams in free agency, they were able to make up for the move by bringing in a two-time Pro Bowler who is still only 24 years old.

In this episode of the AA podcast, we discuss why the Baltimore Ravens would even think about trading Brown to a division rival who has steamrolled them at every turn and why the tackle was even expendable in the first place. We also discuss what the move means for the rest of the Chiefs line, how it changes the team’s offensive capabilities moving forward (especially for Clyde Edwards-Helaire), and what value the Chiefs were able to get in making the trade. We also discuss the long-term financial ramifications of the deal, which by the way, no Chiefs should be concerned about.
