Brown had been scheduled to visit the Chiefs at training camp next week, the team said Thursday, July 27th in Kansas City. He’s expected to sign his franchise tender worth $12.9 million.
The Chiefs have until 4 p.m. ET Friday to reach agreement on a long-term deal with him. If they don’t, he becomes an unrestricted free agent after the season.
The Chiefs now have just two unsigned players left on their roster — running back Jamaal Charles and offensive tackle Eric Fisher.
Orlando Brown, the Chiefs’ left tackle, is expected to report to training camp Monday after missing last week’s session due to injury.
Brown underwent surgery June 26 to repair a torn ACL in his right knee.
He was injured in Week 1 and played one game before being placed on injured reserve.
Brown had been slated to start at left guard, but he was moved back to left tackle before the opener.
Brown started 15 games over the past two seasons at left tackle, helping Kansas City rank No. 4 in total offense (324.1 yards per game) and No. 5 in passing offense (239.8 ypg).
In 2018, he missed three games due to a concussion and four contests with a hamstring strain.
Brown, who turns 29 on Oct. 18, went undrafted out of Oklahoma State in 2013.
He signed with the Browns as a free agent in 2014 and spent time with the Denver Broncos, Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers before joining the Chiefs.
Brown’s contract expires following the 2019 season.
The Chiefs drafted offensive lineman Cody Whitehair in the first round last year, and they traded away right tackle Eric Fisher to the Los Angeles Rams.
Kansas City also acquired former Jaguars center Mitch Morse in a trade with Jacksonville earlier this month.
