Representatives for Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Orlando Brown have started exploring trade possibilities as he seeks a full-time place at left tackle, according to a source.

The Ravens are aware of those plans. They value Brown, but are open to discussions about his future.

The team drafted Brown in 2018 to play right tackle opposite left tackle Ronnie Stanley, who was signed to a five-year, $98.75 million extension in October. When Stanley suffered a fractured and dislocated ankle in Week 8 of last season, Brown moved to left tackle over the final 10 regular-season and playoff games, posting a solid 76.4 Pro Football Focus grade on his way to a second consecutive Pro Bowl.

Brown made clear his feelings in late September with a simple tweet: "I'm a LEFT tackle."

The 6-foot-8 Brown is a former third-round pick set to hit free agency in 2022.
