This is the first reported interest in Clady since the free agent market officially opened last week.

The Seahawks are clearly in the market for offensive line help and Clady is among the best available options, so it makes plenty of sense that they would at least take a look at him.

Clady, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2008. After eight years in Denver, Clady was traded to the Jets for a 2016 fifth-round pick that became Leshaun Sims.

The Jets declined to pick up his $10 million option for the 2017 season, which allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent.

In 2016, Clady appeared in nine games for the Jets before he was placed on injured reserve with a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder. Pro Football Focus has him rated the No. 62 tackle out of 78 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.

McCants, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Giants back in 2012. He lasted just over a year in New York before he was waived at the start of the 2013 and signed to the Raiders’ practice squad.

In total, McCants spent over three years in Oakland before he was waived in November of last year and later claimed by the Browns. McCants stay in Cleveland was limited to just a few weeks before he was once again claimed off of waivers, this time by the Bears.

In 2016, McCants was active for four games and played a total of 38 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
