Whether they win the Super Bowl or not this Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will have some roster roles to plug this offseason.

One decision they will have to make is what to do with offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr., who will be a free agent this offseason.

Pro Football Focus feels he is their best candidate for their franchise tag.

Brown is one of the NFL’s best tackles, and the proof is in the pudding, as he was named to the Pro Bowl for the fourth straight year this season.

At age 26, he should have at least a few more good years left in him, which aligns perfectly with the relative youth of the Kansas City roster.

Brown is also a durable player, as he has appeared in almost every single game over the past four years despite playing one of the most grueling positions in football.

The Philadelphia Eagles possess a fearsome defense that was tops in passing yards allowed during the regular season, and Brown will have a big task in keeping that pass-rush attack at bay while protecting quarterback Patrick Mahomes and giving him time to work his magic.

Philly seems to be slightly favored in the Super Bowl, but Mahomes is always a singular threat, even though he has been dealing with a sprained ankle he suffered in the Chiefs’ Divisional round win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Even without star wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who was sent to the Miami Dolphins last offseason, it wouldn’t surprise anyone if Mahomes overcomes Philly’s defense to claim his second Vince Lombardi Trophy in four years.
