It may not take All-Pro Tackle Duane Brown long to get acclimated in Gotham green.
The veteran tackle, who just started practicing last week with the New York Jets, produced an eye-popping overall PFF grade of 90.2 on Sunday, albeit against mostly Giants backups.
According to Pro Football Focus, Brown played 21 total snaps and didn’t allow a single pressure when Jets QBs dropped back to pass.
His run-blocking grade was 90.8 despite the fact the reshuffled line showed clear signs they are still getting used to working together.
Brown joined the squad after Mekhi Becton was lost for the season, sending tackle George Fant to the opposite end of the line.
Sunday was the first in-game action for the team’s projected starters.

Brown’s play will be key for the team in 2022 as it works to roll out a new high-powered offense that features Corey Davis, Garrett Wilson, Elijah Moore and a two-headed threat at running back — Breece Hall and second year pro, Michael Carter.
The team opens against the Baltimore Ravens.
