Former Broncos LT Ryan Clady announced his retirement after nine seasons in the NFL.
The 12th overall pick of the 2008 draft, Clady started 98 games for the Broncos over eight seasons, earning four Pro Bowl nods and two First Team All-Pro honors. A torn ACL which cost Clady the 2015 season was the beginning of the end of his career, however, and he lasted just nine games with the Jets before landing on injured reserve last year. Only 30, it is always possible Clady decides to come back if he gets the right offer, although he said he made this decision despite interest from multiple teams. Tue, Aug 1, 2017 11:36:00 AM

Free agent LT Ryan Clady visited the Seahawks.

Seattle is Clady's first visit since the Jets declined his option. The Seahawks signed Luke Joeckel to play guard, but they still have major holes on their offensive line. With Riley Reiff, Andrew Whitworth, Russell Okung, and Kelvin Beachum off the market, Clady is the top left tackle remaining.

Jets declined LT Ryan Clady's 2017 option.

He's now a free agent. Clady's future had been in doubt after his roster bonus was delayed last month. His release saves the Jets $10 million, but leaves them without any clear starter at left tackle. Clady is entering his age-31 season, but he has missed most of the past two years to injuries. He'll almost certainly have to settle for short-term, prove-it offers on the open market.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes the team will "probably" release LT Ryan Clady by Wednesday.

Clady is due a $1 million bonus on Wednesday. Clady is heading into his age-31 season and comes with a non-guaranteed $10 million salary after again finishing last season on I.R. with a torn rotator cuff. Clady's career has been marked by injuries. The Jets can't count on him to stay healthy.

The Jets are working on a new deal for LT Ryan Clady.

Clady already delayed a $2.5 million roster bonus due this month. He’s currently owed a non-guaranteed $10 million salary. Clady missed seven games last year and nearly all of 2014 to season-ending injuries. He’s going to have to accept a pay cut to return.

The Jets and LT Ryan Clady agreed to a contract restructure, delaying a $2.5 million roster bonus and lumping it into his 2017 base salary.

The bonus was due next month, but with Clady coming off yet another season-ending injury, the Jets wanted more time to evaluate the situation. Clady is now carrying a $10 million salary for 2017, none of which is guaranteed. The team can hold onto him through the summer or until GM Mike Maccagnan finds a new starting left tackle.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports there is "not a chance" LT Ryan Clady (shoulder, injured reserve) is back with the Jets next season.

Clady has a $2.5 million roster bonus due in February, so the Jets will have to make a quick decision on his future. That decision likely will be to move on. Despite injury concerns the last several years, the 30-year-old should find plenty of takers in free agency.

Jets placed LT Ryan Clady on injured reserve with a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder.

Clady injured his shoulder way back in Week 3 against the Chiefs but had been playing through it before being active last week against the Dolphins, but playing zero snaps. Ben Ijalana moved from right tackle to the left side with RT Breno Giacomini making his season debut. Clady will be a cut candidate in the offseason. Like quarterback, the Jets need to address left tackle in 2017.

Jets LT Ryan Clady (shoulder) is questionable for Week 9 against the Dolphins.

Clady looks to be on the wrong side of questionable after sitting out every practice this week, but the Jets should give him every chance to be active Sunday morning. Ben Ijalana would likely get the nod at left tackle if Clady cannot play. The Jets have issues on the offensive line with C Nick Mangold (ankle) already out and RT Breno Giacomini (shoulder) questionable.
Fri, Nov 4, 2016 07:59:00 PM

Jets LT Ryan Clady (questionable, shoulder) is "trending in the right direction."

Clady "looked as if he would be ruled out" after not practicing early in the week. He got in limited work Friday and should continue playing through his shoulder issues. With RT Brent Qvale (neck) doubtful, the Jets could activate Breno Giacomini (back, PUP) to start against the Browns.

Jets LT Ryan Clady (questionable, shoulder) is expected to play Sunday.

Clady has played through his shoulder injury the last three weeks. The Jets also expect to have C Nick Mangold (questionable, knee) against Baltimore.
Sat, Oct 22, 2016 05:54:00 PM

Jets LT Ryan Clady (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Clady played through his shoulder issue last week and didn't have any setbacks. He should be fine for Sunday's Steelers matchup.
Wed, Oct 5, 2016 04:15:00 PM

Jets LT Ryan Clady (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Clady was limited in practice all week. There's been no concern over his status for Sunday's game. Clady has struggled on Ryan Fitzpatrick's blindside this year, grading as PFF's No. 50 overall tackle through three weeks.

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.
Wed, Jun 1, 2016 11:31:00 AM

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.
