Jets LT Ryan Clady (knee) is participating in team drills at OTAs.

Clady missed the entire 2015 season with an ACL tear, so he should be at or very close to 100 percent. He takes over the left side after longtime Jets LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson retired instead of accepting a pay cut.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said LT Ryan Clady (knee) has been cleared to play.

He should be a full go for OTAs next month after missing all of 2015 with a torn ACL. Clady was brought in earlier this month to replace retired LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson. He'll earn $6 million in his age-30 season.
Apr 22 - 1:32 PM

Jets signed LT Ryan Clady to a two-year, $18 million contract.

The deal was signed as part of the trade in which New York acquired Clady and a seventh-round pick from the Broncos in exchange for a fifth-rounder. The new contract is a revision of Clady's Denver deal, which would've paid him $19 million over the next two seasons. Although the base value is $18 million, Clady's deal amounts to a one-year, $6 million pact with $3 million guaranteed and a non-guaranteed club option for 2017 at the price of $12 million. Incentives and escalators can push the deal's two-year worth to $21 million based on injury-riddled Clady's playing time. It's a fair contract for both player and team. The Jets now have Clady under control for his age-30 and age-31 seasons.

Jets acquired LT Ryan Clady and a seventh-round pick from the Broncos for a fifth-round pick.

The pick swap amounts to an 81-spot jump in the draft for Denver. Clady had been on the trade block since the Broncos signed Russell Okung. He'll take over at left tackle for the Jets after D'Brickashaw Ferguson's retirement. Clady agreed to restructure his $9.5 million salary as part of the deal. He hasn't played a game since 2014 due to ACL surgery, but gives the Jets a proven starter with four-time Pro Bowl credentials if Clady can stay healthy. The move also clears Denver's cap space for a potential Colin Kaepernick trade.
Apr 9 - 7:04 PM

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes the team could pursue Broncos LT Ryan Clady via trade.

It makes too much sense. Much like the Jets played pay-cut hardball with now-retired LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson, the Broncos have been doing the same with Clady, even signing his replacement in Russell Okung. Clady seems like a lock to be dealt or released at some point. Clady is owed a $9.5 million salary. His next team will want him to re-work his deal coming off a torn ACL.

According to ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold, Denver will "have to make a move" with LT Ryan Clady if the team acquires Colin Kaepernick.

Even if Kaepernick takes a big pay cut to join the Broncos, something he's been unwilling to do, Denver will have to make some adjustments to get under the $155.27 million salary cap for 2016. Cutting Clady makes the most sense, though that would leave the Broncos with $1.2 million in dead money. P Britton Colquitt ($4 million cap hit) could be another cap casualty while Chris Harris, Aqib Talib and Demaryius Thomas could also be asked to restructure. Denver has just $1.62 million in cap space right now, easily the lowest number in the league.

Apr 3 - 11:27 AM

ESPN's Rich Cimini does not believe the Jets are interested in trading for Broncos LT Ryan Clady.

Clady is on the block after the Broncos signed Russell Okung in free agency, and the Jets appear willing to move on from longtime LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson. The issue is Clady is only three years younger than Ferguson, is coming off a torn ACL, and is scheduled to make $19.5 million over the next two years. Unless Clady is willing to take a big pay cut, it makes sense for the Jets to stick with Ferguson.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports 4-5 teams are considering a trade for Broncos LT Ryan Clady.

That's great news for the Broncos, who have no need for Clady anymore after signing former Seahawks LT Russell Okung to a five-year deal on Thursday. Clady is coming off a torn ACL and is owed a whopping $19.5 million over his next two seasons. It's unlikely a team would trade for him without a major contract restructure. Clady turns 30 in September.
Mar 18 - 1:19 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos are expected to place OT Ryan Clady on the trade block after signing Russell Okung.

Clady, who missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL, will undoubtedly either be traded or released. The Broncos signed RT Donald Stephenson earlier in free agency to pair with Okung. Going on 30, Clady used to be one of the league's best players, but bookended a subpar 2014 with two injury ruined campaigns. He's due $19.5 million over the next two seasons. Any trade would almost certainly involve a restructure of his contract.
Mar 17 - 4:17 PM

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports the Broncos and LT Ryan Clady "are currently at impasse regarding his contract for 2016."

The Broncos want Clady to take a pay cut on his $9.5 million base salary. Clady, understandably, is not that interested in taking less money, but his opinion could be swayed by the visit of free agent LT Russell Okung to Denver this week. The Broncos can save $8.9 million against the cap by releasing Clady.
Mar 17 - 9:24 AM

The Broncos have approached LT Ryan Clady "multiple times" about taking a pay cut but have yet to reach a resolution.

Clady understandably wants his full $9.5 million salary, but the reality is he'll probably have to accept a pay cut if he wants to remain a Bronco. Cutting Clady would create $8.5 million in cap space that Denver could use to address needs at quarterback, running back and tight end. Clady missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL.
Mar 13 - 11:38 AM

The Broncos opened discussions with LT Ryan Clady on Friday.

The Broncos want to lower Clady's $9.5 million base salary. They're hoping to do the same with DeMarcus Ware. Clady sat out last season after tearing his ACL during OTAs. With Von Miller, Malik Jackson, Danny Trevathan and Brock Osweiler all headed for free agency, the Broncos will need as much cap space as possible.

Feb 26 - 3:37 PM

NBC Denver believes there's "no chance" Broncos LT Ryan Clady is back at his currently scheduled $9.5 million.

Per reporter Mike Klis, the "only question" is whether Clady is cut or restructured. Going on 30, Clady missed all of 2015 with a torn left ACL. Clady, who is signed through 2017, has said he's willing to redo his deal. The Broncos had one of the league's worst tackle situations in 2015, so they'll likely be willing to find a fair middle ground with a player who has been in Denver since 2008.

Feb 25 - 9:29 PM

Broncos LT Ryan Clady told the Associated Press he's willing to have his contract restructured.

The Broncos haven't discussed reworking his deal yet, but Clady believes that conversation will take place after the season. "I'm definitely willing to talk," said Clady. "I definitely would like to be a lifetime Bronco." Clady tore his ACL last May. Ryan Harris has struggled at left tackle during his absence.
