Broncos DT Clinton McDonald is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.
McDonald is sidelined as the Broncos open OTAs this week. He underwent the procedure in March, and the team knew about the issue when it signed him after McDonald had a solid 2017 in Tampa Bay. The 31-year-old remains an effective pocket pusher and will be a key cog in Denver's line rotation. May 22 - 8:43 PM

Seahawks acquired DT Clinton McDonald from the Bengals in exchange for CB Kelly Jennings.

The Bengals got the better end of the deal in terms of talent, but McDonald has a much lower salary than Jennings and could contribute in a rotation. A seventh-round pick in 2009 out of Memphis, McDonald was enjoying his best training camp as a pro in Cincinnati. He'll slot in as a backup "3-technique" in Seattle with a realistic shot of making the final 53.
