The New York Jets seem to be just a few pieces away from competing in the AFC once again. They may have just gotten one of those pieces as they traded for Denver Broncos’ offensive tackle Ryan Clady.
Kimberley Martin, Jet’s beat writer, reported that a source confirmed Adam Schefter’s report of the trade Saturday evening. The Broncos receive a fifth round pick in this year’s NFL Draft, while New York receives Clady and a seventh round selection.
The Broncos drafted Ryan Clady in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He has been selected to five Pro Bowls in his eight-year career and should be a great addition for the Jets.
It certainly looks like head coach Todd Bowles is in for a great second season with the team. After they finished 10-6 and just missed the playoffs, I would say things are looking even brighter for the team going forward.
