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. Sat, Nov 19, 2016 12:24:00 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
