Reports: Ravens tackle Orlando Brown Jr. wants to be traded

Ravens tackle Orlando Brown Jr. has reportedly made it known he would like to be traded, according to multiple reports. 

Jason La Canfora was first to report the news, while Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Brown will only play for a team that wants to put him at left tackle.

Brown tweeted in late January that he was a “LEFT tackle,” which began to stir controversy about a potential trade from the Ravens. Brown filled in for left tackle Ronnie Stanley after he suffered a season-ending ankle injury. 

Brown later expanded a bit, expressing his views on why he wants to be a left tackle in the NFL.

If the Ravens trade Brown this offseason, they’ll likely expect a haul in return for a player that will be a team’s new franchise left tackle. Brown is about to enter the final year of his rookie deal and has already been selected to the Pro Bowl twice in three seasons. 

It’s unclear how many teams are interested in Brown, though he should garner some significant attention. And if he’s moved, the Ravens will have some holes to fill along their offensive line this offseason.
