A guard with the New York Jets of the National Football League, Daniel Feeney was born on May 29, 1994. The Los Angeles Chargers selected him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft after he played college football for Indiana.
The third pick of the 2017 NFL Draft went to the Los Angeles Chargers, who chose Feeney. The Los Angeles Chargers chose guard Feeney second overall in the draft, trailing only Forrest Lamp. His selection in the 2017 NFL Draft made him the fourth offensive guard and fifth interior offensive lineman.
Including a $924,632 signing bonus, Feeney signed a four-year, $3.7 million contract with the Los Angeles Chargers on June 2, 2017.
Throughout training camp, he battled for a starting guard spot with Forrest Lamp, Matt Slauson, Brett Boyko, Donavon Clark, and Kenny Wiggins. After Forrest Lamp tore his ACL and was placed on injured/reserve for the remainder of the season, head coach Anthony Lynn appointed him Kenny Wiggins’ backup right guard.
During the season-opening Los Angeles Chargers’ 21-24 loss to the Denver Broncos, he played his first regular-season game in the professional sphere. When Matt Slauson sustained a season-ending biceps injury on October 29, 2017, Feeney started at left guard for the first time in his career in a 13-21 loss to the New England Patriots. He eventually started the rest of the season at left guard and was selected to the PFWA All-Rookie Team.
The left guard who started all 16 games for Feeney in 2018 was the starting position.
Feeney committed to the New York Jets for a single season on March 19, 2021. Throughout the 2021 season, he took part in 16 games and started 5. He renewed his contract with the Jets on March 16, 2022, for a single season.
