Brown spoke about the request for the first time since he insisted last month he plays left tackle moving forward.
The 24-year-old said his late father, former Ravens right tackle Orlando Brown Sr., wished his son would play left tackle.
“He always told me, ‘Don’t settle for playing right tackle,'” Brown said, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. “‘Make sure that when it comes time and you get to every level, you’re playing left.'”
He added: “It’s a lot more emotional or spiritual for me, I guess you could say, playing left tackle.”
Six teams have contacted Brown’s representation since his trade demand, Garafolo adds.
The Ravens selected Brown in the third round of the 2018 draft. The Oklahoma alum spent the majority of his collegiate career on the left side before moving to right tackle for his first two seasons as a pro.
