The NY Jets have signed tight end Daniel Brown. The tight end depth chart started the day with Chris Herndon and Jordan Leggett on it. On Monday the Jets added Brown who is mainly a special teams player. The 26 year old Brown (he will be 27 in May) is entering his fifth season in the league. He spent time with the Ravens and Bears. He was originally signed by the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2015.
This is a depth signing as Brown, who is listed at 6’5″ and 247lbs, only has 317 receiving yards and 1 touchdown in his career. Last season with the Bears he was mostly a special teams player.
Here are tweets by Daniel Brown’s agent Landon Betsworth and Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News confirming the move.

Daniel Brown primarily played on special teams (42% & 53% of ST snaps in 2017 & 2018).
He only played 23 offensive snaps last season… and 24% of the offensive snaps (241) in 2017. https://t.co/YKSUHfU5b3
