Orlando Brown participates in the National Football League as an offensive lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs. He stands 2.03 m tall and weighs 154 kg. His alma mater was Peachtree Ridge High School, where he also played football. He made the decision to enrol at the University of Oklahoma, where he competed in NCAA football for the Oklahoma Sooners.
He redshirted his first year at Oklahoma in 2014, but the next year he was named the starting left tackle. In January 2018, he stated his intention to forego his senior year and enter the 2018 NFL Draft. He took part in the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and all of the positional drills, but he did not do well.
Mike Mayock, an NFL analyst, referred to his 40-yard sprint time as a “historically poor time” because it was the slowest of any prospect at the combine. In the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Brown was selected by the Baltimore Ravens with the 83rd overall choice. He was named as a backup offensive tackle for the 2020 Pro Bowl in January 2020 and added to the roster for the Pro Bowl that year.
April 2021 saw the trade of Brown to the Kansas City Chiefs. He received a non-exclusive franchise tag from the Chiefs in March 2022. He failed to reach an agreement on a long-term contract, thus on August 2, 2022, he signed his $16.7 million franchise tag tender.
