The Kansas City Chiefs offense is going to look much different when September rolls around. Tyreek Hill is in Miami, which is already a massive loss for Patrick Mahomes and the offense.

JuJu Smith-Schuster is in town and entrenched as the top wideout — for now. Of course, Travis Kelce is still there, and Ronald Jones came in to compete with Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Well, the Chiefs got bad news regarding offensive lineman Orlando Brown Jr. The two sides have been trying to work on a long-term extension all offseason. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, those talks have stalled, and now Brown will play under the franchise tag for the 2022 campaign.

Sure, Brown will play in the 2022 season for the Chiefs. But being unable to keep him long-term would be another tough blow for Kansas City.

The Chiefs gave up a lot to acquire Brown from the Baltimore Ravens, so keeping him at Arrowhead has to be a priority.

But, this latest update isn’t good news, and it could be that the 2022 campaign is Brown’s last in Kansas City. The Chiefs even reportedly offered Brown a six-year deal — which was turned down.

It’s a significant risk, and fans aren’t sure how to feel about Brown’s future being a bit cloudy.

There’s still a possibility that the two sides will agree on a long-term deal. The contract was close to getting done, but it looks like Brown wants more security than the Chiefs offered him.

The Chiefs gave up a ton to acquire Brown, and letting him walk at the end of the 2022 season won’t benefit Mahomes and company.
