  • Denver bringing in Okung for a visit

    OT Russell Okung expected to visit Broncos, source says. Denver looking to bolster OL after losing Ryan Harris. Clady situation fluid too.

    Per Mike Garafolo

    His reported price tag was high, and he also has an extensive injury history. Interesting development though.

      If we have an incentive based, short term contract, it would benefit both sides greatly. I would like to retain Clady, but I doubt we can keep both players.

        Leverage for Clady?

          Makes you think the Clady restructure isn't going well, and he may be headed out.

            I just read this. The most realistic scenario is if we sign Okung, Clady will be cut but I would like your guys opinion on moving Clady to right tackle and signing Okung to Left tackle? Obviously we would still want Clady to take a pay cut.

              I heard he was looking for 11-13 per year. I think that number has changed as he's still on the market. The question is how low will he go?

                  I would imagine if he would sign for the amount we asked Clady to restructure to, Clady will be released and Okung will be LT. If Clady agrees to cut the pay, he will be back and Okung will leave without a deal. Who wants to be here more.

                    No way Okung gets that. If teams had that kind of value on him he would already have been signed. I think his value will be very similar to Clady's.

                    Base value around $3-5M with incentives that max out at $7-9M is my guess.

                      Leverage for Clady possibly, but depends what Okung is looking for.

                      Supposedly asked for 11-13 but with Penn only getting 7 a year, albeit 4 years older but better, more durable. Would he settle for a 1-yr deal to hit the market next year.

                        He's not signing that cheap, around 7-9+ a year would figure.

                          This sounds like leverage in case Clady does not restructure his contract and walks.

                            7M with incentives would be okay. May even give him a substantial 3rd year number...a cut or payday situation so he could conceivably hit the market again at age 30 and get a 3rd contract.

                              Torn labrum and dislocated shoulder injuries could be problematic.
