Jets, Gase Trade Darron Lee to Chiefs for 6th-Rounder: Sources


The New York Jets agreed to send linebacker Darron Lee to the Kansas City Chiefs for a sixth-round draft pick The deal comes just hours after New York fired general manager Mike Maccagnan and installed Gase as the acting GM In 3 years, Lee had 241 tackles, four sacks, 11 passes defensed and three interceptions - all last season - including one returned for a TD


Adam Gase needed just a few hours as the Jets' acting general manager to pull off a big deal.


Two people with direct knowledge of the trade told The Associated Press that New York agreed Wednesday night to send linebacker Darron Lee to the Kansas City Chiefs for a sixth-round draft pick.


The deal is pending a physical, according to the people who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because neither team had announced the move.


Lee had been the subject of trade rumors all offseason, especially after the Jets recently declined his fifth-year contract option for 2020.


Gone are veterans such as Justin Houston and Eric Berry, and second-year general manager Brett Veach has brought in Tyrann Mathieu, Frank Clark, Emmanuel Ogbah and Alex Okafor.
