According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Chiefs could not come to terms on an extension with unsigned franchise tackle Orlando Brown.Â
Brown’s camp said that “there wasnâ€™t enough security over the life of the deal” that Kansas City offered to him.
The 26-year-old’s agent Michael Portner said, “We are dealing with the Chiefs and we understand their position as well.”
“Iâ€™m not gonna let these athletes sign a flashy contract without the substance or security there.â€
If he signs before week one, Brown will play under the franchise tag in 2022 where he could earn $16.7 million.
Pelissero also noted that the Chiefs offered Brown the highest signing bonus and annual percentage on a possible six-year contract, but Brownâ€™s team decided there wasnâ€™t enough security over the life of the deal.
Interesting move from Brown’s camp, and he may regret his decision if he doesn’t get this type of offer after the upcoming season.
