The Baltimore Ravens have had one of the NFL's best rushing attacks over the last two seasons. Some of that starts with quarterback Lamar Jackson, but you can't dominate on the ground the way they have without an elite offensive line.

The Ravens lost All-Pro Marshal Yanda to retirement last year, and now it looks like the line could take another hit with the potential loss of Orlando Brown this offseason.

The 24-year-old tackle is going to command a big return on the trade market. He will surely require a hefty contract extension to stick around with his new team in 2022, but his current deal (with just a $1.1 million cap hit for 2021) means that even cap-strapped teams can be in play.

Here are the three most likely trade destinations for Orlando Brown.

Orlando Brown Trade

1. Los Angeles Chargers

Sam Tevi has started 43 games for the Los Angeles Chargers over the last three seasons, and he played 1,025 snaps at left tackle in 2020. It was clear that he is not the long-term answer at that position. Tevi received an overall grade of just 52.9 from Pro Football Focus. If this offense is going to reach its full potential behind franchise QB Justin Herbert, they need a massive upgrade at left tackle. Brown fits the bill.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars

Like the Chargers, the Jacksonville Jaguars will have a young franchise QB to protect in Trevor Lawrence. Cam Robinson is not the man for the job, posting a middling 66.4 pass blocking grade from PFF in 2020 after notching a 63.8 grade in 2019. With four picks in the top-45 this year, the Jags have plenty of ammunition to make a splash in the trade market.

3. Miami Dolphins

When the Miami Dolphins traded Laremy Tunsil during their fire-sale, it looked like the rebuilding process would take a while. Things have moved much more quickly than expected, however, and now reinforcing that left tackle spot has to be a priority if they want to solidify their status as a contender in the AFC. Whether you want to take "left tackle" literally or to simply be the blindside tackle (so the right tackle for southpaw Tua Tagovailoa), Miami was not protecting well on the edges. Robert Hunt graded out 52nd of 79 qualifying tackles per PFF, and Austin Jackson was 74th.
