ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos have traded sixth-year tackle Chris Clark to the Houston Texans for a 2016 seventh-round draft pick.
In joint practices with the Texans last summer, Clark took exception when J.J. Watt pushed him around in a 1-on-1 pass-rushing drill and kept right on motoring toward the imaginary QB. Clark finally broke free with a swipe at the Texans star that sent the pass rusher’s helmet bouncing on the ground.
“Don’t get mad when you get beat,” Watt hollered at Clark.
Clark, who started at left tackle in the Broncos’ Super Bowl run in 2013, was supplanted at right tackle early this camp by Ryan Harris.
He had been working as a backup to left tackle Ty Sambrailo in recent weeks.
