New York Jets released a high-priced left-hander Ryan Krady, which started the number is an offseason list.
On Wednesday, the team told Clady’s players that he would not pay $ 1 million in the name bonus, and a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. As there was no pay bonus, Wednesday, the Jets made Krady a free agent.
Clady, 30, who was only 10 months ago in trade with Denver Broncos, also plans to trade in the last year of the contract signed last April with an unproportionate base salary of $ 10 million.
The jets cut the cap space by $ 10 million, cut Clady, which should make their salary cap in 2017 expected. Before they were about $ 7 million over the cap.
This is the first important salary dump in what number is a big overhaul. High-profile players such as Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold and Brandon Marshall can follow him out.
Jets, they tried to persuade Clady to fail to pay, and could reapply him later. Clady, who missed the last seven games after tearing the rotator cuff and recovered from surgery.
Now they have a crevice hole on the left tackle. Ben Ijalana replaces Clady in the left attack, is a pending free agent. There is no obvious heir on the roster.
This is a rare situation in the jets’ instability.
For ten years, the left-hander was headed by D’Brickashaw Ferguson, but he retired last April. The jets tried a chance to surrender the fifth pick to the Mustang, who had a talented, injured Clady body. The jet also received the seventh round.
Clady, the first draft of the 2008 season, made four professional teams and two full-time teams in Denver’s seven seasons. Because of the foot and knee injury, he played from 2013 to 2015 only played 18 games.
The curse of injury happened again in the last season. Krady torn the rotator cuff in the third week, according to the jets, but he played for a month. It became unbearable that he was placed in the injured after the ninth race.
