American pro football player Orlando Brown Jr. has had a dynamic and impactful career in the NFL, starting with the Baltimore Ravens before moving to the Kansas City Chiefs and, most recently, signing with the Cincinnati Bengals. Drafted by the Ravens in 2018 with a four-year contract, Brown quickly established himself as a reliable force on the offensive line, playing all 16 games in his rookie season. His performance earned him Pro Bowl selections in 2020 and subsequent years, marking him as one of the top offensive tackles in the league. A trade to the Chiefs in 2021 saw Brown continue his high level of play, culminating in a Super Bowl LVII victory against the Eagles, securing his first Super Bowl ring. In 2023, Brown embarked on a new chapter with the Bengals, signing a four-year, $64 million contract.
Beyond his achievements on the field, Brown has taken on a significant role off the field as well, particularly in advocacy for type 1 diabetes awareness. Following his family’s personal journey with the disease, including the loss of his father, Orlando Brown Sr., to diabetic ketoacidosis, and his younger brother’s diagnosis, Brown has become an ambassador for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). His commitment to the cause is driven by a desire to make a positive impact in the community by advocating for more research, education, and access to diabetes technologies and therapies. Brown’s role was officially announced at a T1D community event hosted by JDRF and the Cincinnati Bengals, showcasing his dedication to supporting those affected by type 1 diabetes.
