The New York Jets are trading tight end Daniel Brown to the Kansas City Chiefs for guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, according to multiple reports ahead of Tuesday’s trade deadline.

Brown, 29, has mostly played special teams this season and has no catches in seven games.

He has 44 receptions for 420 yards and two touchdowns in 81 games (12 starts) with the Baltimore Ravens (2015-16), Chicago Bears (2016-18) and Jets.

Duvernay-Tardif, 30, has not played since the 2019 season. A physician, he opted out of the 2020 season amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

In August, he broke a bone in his hand and ultimately lost his starting position at right guard to rookie Trey Smith. Duvernay-Tardif has been a healthy scratch throughout this season.

Duvernay-Tardif started 57 of his 60 games from 2015-19 with the Chiefs, who drafted him in the sixth round in 2014.
