Elevated for Week 17

Brown was elevated to the Jets' active roster from the practice squad for Sunday's game versus Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Brown will be a gameday elevation for the fifth straight contest for New York. He's played only a handful of offensive snaps during that span and doesn't have any fantasy upside.

Reverts back to practice squad

Brown reverted to the Jets' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Brown played two offensive snaps and 21 special-team snaps, but he didn't record any counting stats during the Jets' 26-21 win over the Jaguars. With three wideouts on IR and Laviska Shenault on the COVID-19 list, Brown is a likely candidate for a fifth straight elevation in Week 17.

On active roster again

The Jets elevated Brown from the practice squad Saturday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: The Jets shipped Brown to the Chiefs at the trade deadline, but he didn't make an appearance for the latter before he was waived on Nov. 20. He found his way back to New York as a practice squad member, getting elevated by the Jets in each of the last three games. That said, Brown has mostly been relegated to special teams, earning 64 snaps in that phase of the game versus just 11 on offense.

Shipped to Kansas City

The Jets traded Brown to the Chiefs for Laurent Duvernay-Tardif on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Back with Gang Green

The Jets re-signed Brown on Thursday.

Analysis: Brown spent training camp in New York, though he was hampered by a hamstring injury, and the team cut him while trimming down to the initial 53-man roster. With Chris Herndon having been traded, however, another opportunity has opened up for Brown with the Jets.

Brown (hamstring) was released by the Jets on Tuesday.

Analysis: Brown was hampered by a hamstring injury for most of New York's training camp. He was competing for a depth tight end role with the team, but the team has opted to go with Tyler Kroft and Trevon Wescon as the No. 1 and No. 2 players at that position.
