Cincinnati Bengals left tackle Jonah Williams has requested a trade after the team agreed to terms with Orlando Brown Jr., NFL Network reported Friday.

Williams, 25, has started 47 games (including the playoffs) since the Bengals drafted him with the 11th overall pick in 2019.

He requested a trade through his agent, Ryan Tollner, according to the report.

Based on his age and experience, the 6-foot-5, 312-pound Williams would almost certainly attract suitors if Cincinnati elects to let him go. He is due $12.6 million guaranteed on his fifth-year option.

The Bengals are reportedly finalizing a four-year, $64 million deal with Brown, a four-time Pro Bowl selection who spent the past two seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Brown, 26, has started 75 of his 81 career games with the Baltimore Ravens (2018-20) and Chiefs.
