Broncos trade OL Chris Clark to Texans for seventh-round draft pick

Monday August 31st, 2015

The Denver Broncos have traded offensive tackle Chris Clark to the Houston Texans for a seventh-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the team announced on Monday.

Clark, 29, joined Denver in 2010 as a waiver claim from the Minnesota Vikings. In 2013, Clark replaced an injured Ryan Clady and went on to start 17 games for the Broncos, including Super Bowl XLVIII.

The Broncos are expected to go with 2014 third-round draft pick Michael Schofield at swing tackle.

Clark will bolster Houston's offensive line depth. The Texans used rookie Kendall Lamm at left tackle for injured Duane Brown in Saturday's 27–13 win over the New Orleans Saints.
