Kansas City and OT Orlando Brown Jr. still have yet to come to an agreement on a contract extension. Brown is currently working to find an agent to assist in contract negotiations, and the two sides have until July 15th to agree to a long-term extension.
“He’s still working to get an agent,” Reid said via the Athletic. “He’s interviewing these different people. Once he gets that taken care of, we’ll be able to roll. I know he’s working out in Florida.”
Mahomes isn’t concerned about Brown potentially leaving Kansas City.
“He’s a guy that loves football,” Mahomes said. “I know he wants to be here and to be a Chief.”
- Jordan Schultz reports that the Chiefs want to extend Brown before the July 15th deadline and confirms he’s interviewing multiple agents in an attempt to find new representation ahead of the deal.
Raiders HC Josh McDaniels praised QB Derek Carr‘s leadership qualities and his ability to take coaching well.
“He’s a great human being and he’s a really smart football player — and you don’t have to say it five times for him to get it,” McDaniels said via PFT. “There’s a natural way he learns that’s pretty easy as a coach. And he’s a great leader. So his teammates follow him. He’s a competitive guy. He wants to do it the way you want it done, which I love that about him. He knows that I’ll give him some grey, but he doesn’t want the grey. He wants [it to be], ‘Hey, tell me exactly how you want it done. I’m gonna try to do it that way.’ So, just a great process. Really excited about the time I’ve gotten to spend with him so far. And looking forward to developing that relationship more and more as we go. Very coachable guy, sets the bar high. He’s here early, stays late, does everything you can ask of him.”
