On Friday, we learned that the Kansas City Chiefs were unable to make a long-term deal with their franchise-tagged left tackle Orlando Brown Jr. before the deadline to do so. Reports from Brown’s camp have indicated that this could lead to a holdout from training camp practices — and maybe even games.
Whether or not Brown will go through with that is unknown — but either way, the Chiefs will have a plan ready. What could that look like? Let’s go through all of Kansas City’s options.
Returning players: Lucas Niang, Andrew Wylie and Prince Tega-Wanogho
The most obvious answer to fill in would be Niang — but unfortunately, the patella injury he suffered in last season’s Week 17 game may keep him from starting training camp on time.
