The Chiefs have landed offensive tackle Jawaan Taylor on a four-year, $80-million deal, according to multiple reports Monday. The 25-year-old Taylor is expected to step in as Kansas City's new left tackle.

A second-round pick of the Jaguars in 2019, Taylor started 66 games across the past four seasons for Jacksonville.

A four-time Pro Bowl tackle, Brown became a free agent after the Chiefs opted not to use the franchise tag and retain him for 2023. He spent the last two seasons in Kansas City and started all 17 regular-season games as the Chiefs won the Super Bowl this past season.

Free agents can officially sign with teams Wednesday at 3 p.m. CT, when the new league year begins.
