Report: Russell Okung, Broncos finalizing five-year deal
The Denver Broncos and left tackle Russell Okung are finalizing a five-year deal worth over $10 million per year, reports ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
The deal could be worth up to $12 million per year, reports NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, who adds Denver will now try to trade oft-injured left tackle Ryan Clady. According to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports, the contract is one-year, $5 million with a four-year team option worth $12 million a season.
Okung started 13 games for the Seahawks last season, the final year of a six-year, $48 million deal he signed as a rookie. Okung, 28, announced earlier this month he would be representing himself during free agency negotiations.
In six seasons, all with the Seahawks, Okung has played in 72 games. The former No. 6 overall pick of the 2010 draft has never played a full regular season in his career.
