Broncos trade OT Chris Clark to Texans


The Houston Texans acquired some offensive line depth in a trade with the Denver Broncos on Monday.

Every game, all season

The Broncos announced they shipped reserve offensive tackle Chris Clark to Houston in exchange for a 2016 pick. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported the pick is a seventh-rounder, per a source informed of the deal.

ESPN's Jeff Legwold first reported the news.

Clark started 27 games in five seasons in Denver, including seven in 2014. Clark, due $1.4 million in 2015, sat behind rookie Tyler Sambrailo who is replacing the injured Ryan Clady at left tackle.

Clark started Super Bowl XLVIII at left tackle for the Broncos.

In Houston, Clark likely will take up the swing-tackle gig and represents insurance in the event left tackle Duane Brown is unable to play Week 1 with a hand injury.
