After Mekhi Becton went down with a season ending knee injury early in the week, the Jets had a major hole at the tackle position. Without a credible internal option, a move was likely to come. Whether it would be a signing or a trade was unclear.
We did know Duane Brown was an option. The veteran tackle visited the Jets last weekend before Becton was even hurt. If there was mutual interest in a backup role, once a starting job opened up the odds of a Jets-Brown union rose.
Today the Jets and Brown agreed to terms on a two year deal. On today’s podcast I discuss the move.
Brown isn’t the player he once was. The Jets will try to squeeze a quality year out of him. He just was the best option the Jets had available to them.
