Darron Lee was rumored to be on the NFL trade block all offseason, and now the former Ohio State linebacker officially has a new home.

The Jets have traded Lee to the Kansas City Chiefs in return for a sixth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The 2016 first-round pick appeared in 40 games for the Jets, starting 37. In his first three NFL seasons, Lee has 238 total tackles, four sacks, 11 passes defended and three interceptions, including one interception returned for a touchdown.

Lee had the most productive season of his career in 2018, but it was cut short as he was suspended for the final four games of the season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
