Jets, Broncos announce trade that sends Clady to New York
NEW YORK (AP) The Jets and Broncos say they have agreed to terms on the trade that sends left tackle Ryan Clady from Denver to New York.
It didn't take long for the Jets to find a replacement for D'Brickashaw Ferguson, who retired Saturday after 10 seasons in the NFL. The Jets are sending a fifth-round draft pick to the Broncos for Clady and a seventh-rounder.
Clady gives the Jets a starting-caliber replacement for Ferguson but has been injured often. While Ferguson never missed a snap in his career due to injury, Clady missed 30 of the Broncos' last 48 games over the last three seasons.
When healthy, Clady has been one of the game's best at his position, making four Pro Bowls since being Denver's first-round pick out of Boise State in 2008.
