The Ravens are trading Brown to the Chiefs for a package that includes the 31st overall pick in the 2021 draft, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
After an impressive stint filling in for Ronnie Stanley (ankle) at left tackle last season, Brown requested a trade with the hope of finding a permanent home on the blindside. He should get his wish in Kansas City, where he'll spend the final year of his rookie contract protecting QB Patrick Mahomes. Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that Brown may play out 2021 without an extension, as he and the Chiefs don't have any deal in place right now.
Brown intends to continuing playing at left tackle after successfully switching over from right tackle after Ronnie Stanley went down with a season-ending ankle injury, Todd Karpovich of Sports Illustrated reports.
Brown has been vocal about continuing at left tackle since the conclusion of the Ravens' season, a decision that has ignited potential trade speculation. With Stanley expected to return fully healthy in time for training camp next year, the Ravens would prefer to slide Brown back to right tackle, but with one more year remaining on his deal the team could simply opt to move Brown instead of retaining a potentially disgruntled player in the locker room.
Brown (undisclosed) returned to practice Friday after passing his physical, Ryan Mink of the team's official website reports.
Brown was originally placed on the NFI list after failing the team's conditioning test prior to training camp. However, he has since shown improvement and is back at practice working as a depth lineman.
The Ravens placed Brown (undisclosed) on the non-football injury list Thursday, Aaron Kasinitz of Pennlive.com reports.
Brown's injury remains undisclosed but appears to be minor. The 2018 third-round pick tops Baltimore's depth chart at right tackle, so his health will be worth monitoring as training camp progresses.
