After losing Ryan Harris to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Denver Broncos are bringing in offensive tackle Russell Okung to discuss a potential contract. The report also states that the Ryan Clady situation is fluid as well, which could mean the Broncos may be looking to move on from him as well.
OT Russell Okung expected to visit Broncos, source says. Denver looking to bolster OL after losing Ryan Harris. Clady situation fluid too.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 16, 2016
Okung was the 10th highest graded offensive tackle in 2012, but has graded out negatively every year since. At 28, he is still quite young and the Broncos may hope they can help him recapture some of his early success in the NFL.
Knowing how John Elway has operated to open free agency, this visit will come down to money. Spotrac pegs Okung's market value at 4 yrs for $35 million, which is well above what I think the Broncos will offer. If Okung's price is too high, he won't be signing a contract with the Broncos any time soon.
