Jets reportedly decline option on tackle Ryan Clady, making him a free agent
The free-agent depth at offensive tackle appears to be getting a bit deeper. The New York Jets opted not to pick up the option on offensive tackle Ryan Clady, according to multiple reports Wednesday.
Jets won't be picking up LT Ryan Clady's option for 2017, as @AdamSchefter just tweeted. He's a free agent.

Clady, who was due to make $10 million in 2017, has been named to two Pro Bowls. The Jets cut the 30-year-old tackle before Wednesday’s deadline, which would have triggered a $2.5 million bonus.
Clady, who spent his first eight years in the league with the Broncos, was limited to just nine games last season in New York due to a season-ending shoulder injury.
