Clady, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2008. He was traded to the Jets this past April for a 2016 seventh-round pick that eventually became Lachlan Edwards.

The Jets signed him to a two-year, $18 million contract that included $3 million guaranteed and a base salary of $6 million for the 2016 season.

In 2016, Clady appeared in nine games for the Jets and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 54 offensive tackle out of 74 qualifying players.

Jenkins, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Redskins back in 2011. He spent three years in Washington and later signed on with the Bears.

The Jets gave him two-year, $7 million contract this past March and he stands to make a base salary of $1.5 million for the 2016 season.

In 2016, Jenkins has appeared in nine games and recorded nine tackles and no sacks for the Jets.

Smith, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Jets back in May of last year. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $5.872 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season.

He wound up being placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL in December of last year. He opened the season on the team’s PUP list.

In 2015, Smith appeared in 10 games for the Jets and recorded nine receptions for 115 yards receiving and a touchdown.
