Ryan Clady Contract: Broncos, Tackle Expected To Talk Extension Over Summer

Denver Broncos offensive tackle Ryan Clady is in line for an extension this summer.

The Denver Broncos have had a rock at left tackle since the 2008 season: Ryan Clady. He's started in 64 out of 64 possible regular season games and two playoff games. That's even after partially tearing a patellar tendon in April 2010, which put the start of that season in jeopardy (he proved a fast healer). Now, Clady's rookie contract is set to end after he makes $3.5 million this season; however, the team is expected to open contract negotiations with Clady this summer, reports the Denver Post.

Clady will anchor a line once again that features Zane Beadles, J.D. Walton and Orlando Franklin. Chris Kuper, he of the gruesome dislocated ankle and broken leg, is progressing nicely during the offseason. Walton would have lost his starting center spot had Jeff Saturday joined the team, but he chose the Packers over the Broncos.
