Durant joined the Chiefs in 2020 as an undrafted free agent.
Durant, 23, joined the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Missouri following the 2020 NFL Draft. Durant garnered a total of 91 offensive snaps for the Chiefs last season, which included 24 at right tackle when Mike Remmers left the team’s Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins due to injury. He also took 53 snaps at right guard against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17, as the club rested its starters.
The Chiefs had been primarily working Durant at the guard positions during the 2021 preseason before trading him to the Patriots on Monday night, less than 24 hours until the initial 53-man roster cutdown on Tuesday at 3 p.m. Arrowhead Time.
The trade indicates that Durant was not going to make the Chiefs’ roster, which speaks to its rebuilt offensive line depth, but the Patriots obviously liked him enough that they did not want to see him made available to the other 30 teams.
The Durant trade brings the Chiefs’ roster to 67 players, so 14 moves are still to be made.
