Jets Trade for the Olympics Laurent Duvernay-Tardif

The Jets have substituted for Chiefs G Laurent Duvernay-Tardif for TE Dan Brown.

Duvernay-Tardif (6-5, 321) was drafted by the Chiefs in the sixth round of McGill University in 2014 and started 57 of the 60 matches he appeared in from 2014-19. He resigned from the 2020 season and worked as a rapporteur at a long-term care center in Montreal during the pandemic. He was named Sports Illustrateds one of their Sportspeople of the Year and was a co-winner of the Lou Marsh Trophy, which is awarded to Canada’s top athlete of the year. He was active in Week 8 against the Giants for the first time since the Chiefs beat the 49ers in Super Bowl LIFE (February 2020).

Brown (6-5, 247) has spent the last three seasons with the Jets, a total of 9 catches, 103 yards and 1 touchdown in 39 games (6 starts). He also took 780 snaps on special teams and led the unit with 335 in 2020. He first signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of James Madison in 2015. Brown also played for the Bears from 2016-18 and has 44 catches, 420 yards and 2 TDs in 81 games (12 starts) over six and a half seasons.
