Leading up to the Super Bowl, it was reported that the Kansas City Chiefs planned to franchise tag starting left tackle and pending free agent Orlando Brown. Such a move would take the top free agent left tackle off the market, leaving a significant drop-off to the next-closest player at the position. For a team that needs a tackle like the Patriots, this was a notable development.
It seems though like things have changed in the last month. On Monday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport shared that the Chiefs no longer plan to place the tag on Brown ahead of Tuesday’s deadline.
