    News

    The Jets agreed to trade Lee to the Chiefs on Wednesday in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Impact

    After the Jets were unwilling to pick up Lee's fifth-year option for 2020 earlier in the offseason, the team and interim general manager/head coach Adam Gase chose to ship the linebacker elsewhere. The 2016 first-round pick was left without a starting job after the Jets signed C.J. Mosley to a massive contract back in March. Lee is still on track to be a free agent next spring, unless the Chiefs are interested in discussing an extension before the start of the new league year. For now, Lee is expected battle for snaps in a linebacking core that already features Anthony Hitchens and Reggie Ragland.
