The Jets have acquired four-time Pro Bowl tackle Ryan Clady and a seventh-round draft choice from the Broncos in exchange for a fifth-rounder, according to multiple reports.
New York was looking to fill the void at tackle left by D’Brickashaw Ferguson, who retired on Friday after 10 seasons. It reportedly inquired about Denver’s other tackle, Russell Okung, whose contract was a bit cheaper.
Clady has two years and $19.5 million remaining on the contract he signed with Denver in 2013, but will restructure it according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. He will earn $6 million in 2016–17, with $3 million guaranteed and a $10 million player option for a second year.
