Jets trade Darron Lee to Chiefs as Adam Gase grabs reins


Darron Lee likely isn’t smiling anymore.

The Jets, as expected, traded their 2016 first-round pick to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for a 2020 sixth-rounder on Wednesday, a source confirmed to The Post’s Brian Costello.

What wasn’t expected: How quickly Adam Gase struck his first deal as interim general manager since winning a power struggle with the fired Mike Maccagnan earlier in the day. 

In the midst of Wednesday’s stunning firing, Lee sent out a tweet that appeared to poke fun at his now-former boss.

“Good afternoon everybody,” he wrote next to a beaming smiley face emoji, before deleting it.

Maccagnan had previously declined Lee’s fifth-year option, and it turns out Gase didn’t want him either.
