Daniel Brown News

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.

Cut by 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.

Suffers hamstring injury

Brown suffered a left hamstring injury during Thursday's practice, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Brown was unable to finish practice due to the injury, and coach Robert Saleh said that the tight end will be further evaluated to determine the extent of the issue. The 29-year-old has appeared in every game across his last two seasons with the Jets while mainly serving as a contributor on special teams.

Back with Jets

The Jets re-signed Brown on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Brown led the Jets in special-teams tackles in 2020, while also catching both of his targets for 31 yards while appearing in all 16 regular-season games. By virtue of his depth utility and acumen on special teams, Brown could certainly earn tenure on the active roster for a third straight season.

Apr 19, 2021 12:11 PM EST

Consecutive games with a catch

Brown caught his only target for 18 yards in Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: Brown caught a ball in each of New York's last two games after previously going without a catch all season. He'll hope to make a roster as a depth tight end next season, be it with the Jets or another team.

Jan 3, 2021 5:53 PM EST

Makes first catch of season

Brown caught his only target for 13 yards in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Browns.

Analysis: Brown made his first catch of the season count, picking up 13 yards to convert on 3rd-and-9. The fourth-string tight end is a near non-factor in New York's offense.

Dec 27, 2020 3:57 PM EST

Returns to active roster

The Jets re-signed Brown on Sunday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: Brown only spent a day apart from New York before the team opted to re-sign him. He'll offer New York depth at tight end behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin.

Sep 6, 2020 5:10 PM EST

Back at practice

Brown (undisclosed) was activated off the non-football injury list Saturday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Brown has been on the NFI list since July 30. He is a distant third in the tight end pecking order for the Jets behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin, but will look to make an impression at camp regardless. His 2019 season ended in December following ankle surgery, but it now appears his health is finally back up to par.

To NFI list

The Jets placed Brown (undisclosed) on the non-football injury list Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: Brown is a distant third in the tight end pecking order for the Jets behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin. That said, Griffin is still in recovery mode from December ankle surgery, which could have allowed Brown to have increased reps in the coming weeks. Instead, Brown is dealing with an unknown injury of his own, leaving his status in limbo for the time being.

Jul 30, 2020 4:27 PM EST

Inks one-year extension

Brown signed a one-year contract extension with the Jets on Thursday.

Analysis: Brown appeared in all 16 regular-season games with the Jets in 2019, hauling in seven catches for 72 yards and one touchdown. He also played a key role on special teams. The veteran tight end stands to handle a similar role on the tight end depth chart for 2020.

Feb 13, 2020 3:49 PM EST

Three catches in finale

Brown caught three of four targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 13-6 win over Buffalo.

Analysis: Brown came in with just four catches all season but closed out the campaign in style with his first multi-catch effort. He was forced into a larger role with injuries ravaging the tight end depth chart above him, but Brown will go back to a depth role next season, be it with the Jets or elsewhere.

Dec 29, 2019 4:27 PM EST

Goose egg in win

Brown failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Steelers.

Analysis: With their top two tight ends both injured, the Jets have largely ignored the position in the passing game recently. Brown and rookie Tevon Wesco combined for one catch, and the team has more incentive to find out what it has in Wesco than the 27-year-old Brown.

Dec 22, 2019 7:17 PM EST

Small role in TNF loss

Brown caught one of two targets for four yards during Thursday's 42-21 loss to the Ravens.

Analysis: Brown played 29 snaps (49 percent) on offense with Ryan Griffin (ankle) out for the season. The James Madison product stands to continue splitting tight end reps with Trevon Wesco going forward, but due to his lack of upside as a pass catcher he doesn't warrant fantasy consideration in most formats.

Dec 13, 2019 1:40 PM EST

Set to start Thursday

Brown is expected to start at tight end against the Ravens on Thursday with Ryan Griffin (ankle) ruled out, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Brown played 87 percent of snaps on offense during Week 14's win over the Dolphins, during which Griffin left the field early in the first quarter. The James Madison product doesn't offer much upside as a pass catcher, but he could nonetheless warrant fantasy consideration in leagues that start multiple tight ends due to his expected opportunity.

Dec 11, 2019 3:36 PM EST

Quiet after Griffin leaves

Brown caught one of two targets for seven yards in Sunday's 22-21 win over Miami.

Analysis: Brown and rookie Trevon Wesco were the only healthy tight ends remaining after Ryan Griffin exited early on due to an ankle injury. Even if Griffin is forced to miss time beyond this game, Brown doesn't have enough receiving ability to warrant fantasy consideration.

Dec 8, 2019 6:57 PM EST

Gets rare catch

Brown caught his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 22-6 loss to Cincinnati.

Analysis: Brown doubled his season catch total with this effort. It's safe to leave the blocking tight end off your radar.

Dec 1, 2019 6:25 PM EST

Scores 20-yard TD

Brown caught a 20-yard touchdown on his lone target in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Redskins.

Analysis: This was Brown's first catch of the season and second touchdown in his 52nd NFL game. Fantasy owners can continue to ignore the depth tight end.

Nov 18, 2019 9:55 AM EST

Will play Sunday

Brown (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Analysis: Brown was considered questionable after working as a limited participant at practice, but he won't end up missing a game due to the ankle issue. The 27-year-old is set to serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Ryan Griffin.

Oct 6, 2019 9:01 AM EST

Considered questionable

Brown (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Jets, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Brown was limited at practice throughout the week and is looking like a game time decision. Trevon Wescon would be in line to back up Ryan Griffin should he ultimately be unable to go.Chris Herndon (suspension) is set to return in next week against the Cowboys, which will knock Brown one more down the depth chart.

Oct 4, 2019 4:17 PM EST

Limited with ankle injury

Brown (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: The nature of Brown's injury remains unknown at this time, but it's a positive sign that he wasn't held out of practice entirely. The veteran tight end does most of his damage as a blocker and special-teams asset.
