Former first round draft pick Duane Brown is signing with a new team. After losing right tackle Mekhi Becton for the entire 2022-2023 season, the New York Jets are signing Duane Brown as a replacement. The monetary details of the contract are unknown at time of writing.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Thursday.
Brown was drafted out of Virginia Tech with the 26th overall pick of the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans. He played there until 2017 before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks. Brown remained a Seahawk until the 2021 season ended.
At age 36, Brown remains a reliable starter in the NFL. He played every game in both the 2020 and 2021 seasons. He has also made five Pro Bowls and been selected to the First Team All-Pro once (in 2012). His latest Pro Bowl nod came in 2020.
