There are reportedly six teams in trade talks with the Baltimore Ravens for offensive tackle Orlando Brown, but the Indianapolis Colts are not one of them, per Jim Ayello of the Indianapolis Star.

This doesn’t come as a surprise even though the Colts have a massive need to find a new left tackle after the retirement of Anthony Castonzo. Brown’s price, both in draft picks and eventual salary, are likely to keep the Colts from making a big trade like this.

The Colts already give up their 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick in order to get quarterback Carson Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles. We know how much GM Chris Ballard loves those draft picks, so giving up more for Brown doesn’t appear to be in the cards.

Brown has been the right tackle for the Ravens since he was selected in the third round of the 2018 NFL draft. He’s set to be a free agent following the 2021 season, so whichever team trades for him will certainly want to sign him to an extension.
