The Broncos have traded offensive tackle to the Texans for a seventh round draft pick, according to ESPN's Jeff Legwold. Clark's $1.4 million 2015 salary will now be on Houston's tab.

Clark had been listed as the No. 2 tackle on the team's depth chart.

Clark, 29, was originally signed by the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Mississippi in 2008. He went on to spend time with the Vikings before joining Denver in 2010.

He was an extra blocking tight end/tackle for the Broncos during the Tim Tebow era, and started in 14 games during the team's 2013 Super Bowl season.

Clark started seven games last season, allowing two sacks, according to STATS. It wouldn't be surprising to see the team bring in another offensive tackle for depth.

With Clark now gone, Michael Schofield will become the team's swing tackle/guard, according to the Denver Post's Troy Renck. Meanwhile, more trades may be coming, according to CBS Denver's Vic Lombardi.

Running back Montee Ball figures to be a candidate to be traded.

Denver announced 11 other transactions Monday. The team must make three more.
