Orlando Brown Jr. Career Summary
Since he was taken in the third round of the 2018 NFL draft by the Baltimore Ravens, Brown has played in 81 total games between his three seasons with Baltimore and two with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was traded to Kansas City along with a second-round pick and a sixth-round pick in exchange for a first-round pick, a third-round pick, a fourth-round pick and a 2022 fifth-round draft choice.

Orlando Brown Jr. Fit With Bengals
The four-time Pro Bowler is a formidable fit for any team, and the Bengals are certainly lucky to land him.
Known for his ability to protect the quarterback, he had four sacks, 10 hits, 44 hurries, 58 pressures and seven penalties in the 2022 season. Though he earned a 2022 pass pressure rate of 5.4 percent, a slightly below average ranking for left tackles, his four sacks on 722 pass-block snaps was a league-high for left tackles, according to the Atheltic.
