The representation for Baltimore Ravens tackle Orlando Brown reportedly has "ongoing" discussions with six teams about a potential trade. 

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported the news, noting a new contract is part of the negotiation process with Brown's next team.

Brown requested a trade from Baltimore so that he could play left tackle. The Ravens have Ronnie Stanley inked to a long-term contract at the position.

"It's a situation where Baltimore knows my plan isn't to play right tackle," Brown said. "I feel more comfortable on the left side. That's where I had played my whole life (before joining the Ravens). I'm a better left tackle than right tackle."

Whichever team trades for him could land its left tackle of the future if it signs him to a long-term deal.

After all, the Oklahoma product is just 24 years old and already a two-time Pro Bowler. He made the Pro Bowl in each of the last two seasons even though he wasn't playing his desired position and helped lead the Ravens to the playoffs in each of his first three years in the league.

Brown is also durable having not missed a single game in his career, and he earned an impressive player grade of 76.4 from Pro Football Focus last season.

It remains to be seen whether he can replicate that type of impact on the left side of the line, but he would like an opportunity to on his next team.
