Commercial guard chiefs approved Laurent DuVernay Tardiff To The Jets, according to sources who spoke with NFL.com’s Mike Garafolo (Twitter Link). In return, aircraft will send a tight end Daniel Brown to Kansas City.
It appears Duvernay-Tardif personally signed the deal, as he is one of 10 NFL players to have a no-trade clause. The Chiefs received—and declined—calls on the LDT audition all summer, but took Gang Green on their show before the deadline.
The LDT was a full-time start for presidents from 2015-19, but chose not to participate in the 2020 campaign in order to treat COVID-19 patients. The licensed medical professional has yet to play this year, due to a fractured bone in his hand.
This is just the last step in revamping the Chiefs’ offensive line. After the Bucs beat the KC five in the Super Bowl, The Chiefs swing a great deal to interfere Orlando Brown Junior and use the second round option to take the position Creed Humphrey. LDT is set to be a part of this squad, but his hand injury prompted the sixth round selection Trey Smith to the role of the first series instead. Although he hasn’t played since season 19, LDT offers a serious tryout with 60 games, including 57 games.
Brown, 29, first entered the league as an uncertified free agent from James Madison. After stints with the Ravens and Bears, he joined the Jets in 2019. He’s made just six appearances for the Jets, with the bulk of that action in 2019. Best known for his blocking, Brown has only 44 for 420 yards and two touchdowns in six and a half seasons. .
