New York Jets free-agent target Duane Brown earned his largest contract with the Seattle Seahawks.

It’s no secret — the New York Jets are still looking for help at offensive tackle.

Like last offseason, the theory is that general manager Joe Douglas would prefer to enter Week 1 with some veteran depth behind George Fant and Mekhi Becton. After all, the Morgan Moses move was a tremendous success in 2021 so why not repeat that same strategy this summer?

The first potential free-agent target was Riley Reiff, who emerged as a candidate in early June. Unfortunately, Reiff chose to sign with the Chicago Bears on July 26.

There have been a couple of other names tossed around, like Eric Fisher or Jason Peters, but next on the wishlist of most fans has been Duane Brown — a five-time Pro Bowler and one-time first-team All-Pro of the Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks. Well Gang Green nation, he’s expected to be in the building tonight on August 6.

ESPN’s Rich Cimini broke the story that spread like wildfire across Jets Twitter. “Free-agent OT Duane Brown is visiting the Jets and will attend the Green & White scrimmage tonight, per source,” he informed. “Brown is a former Pro Bowler who started every game last season for the Seahawks [and] turns 37 on Aug. 30.”

At the height of his career, Brown inked a $53.4 million deal with the Seahawks in 2012 and remains a premier name within the OT market
