Ryan Clady Contract Update: Broncos And Clady Begin Discussions

The Denver Broncos know that the only way that Peyton Manning can make the contributions necessary to compete for a Super Bowl is to make sure that he has the time to make every throw. According to the Denver Post, the Broncos are making sure this is the case, as they have opened contract discussions with Pro Bowl LT Ryan Clady:

The Broncos have opened contract-extension talks with Ryan Clady, according to several NFL sources.

The left tackle is in the final year of his deal that will pay him $3.5 million in 2012. The franchise tag for left tackles this season was $9.4 million.

While the Broncos and Clady's agent are talking, it may be a while before the two sides are close to an agreement.

The Broncos' first-round pick, No. 12 overall, in the 2008 NFL draft, Clady almost immediately became one of the league's best at one of the game's most pivotal positions.

Clady bounced back from a knee injury he suffered before the 2010 season to earn Pro Bowl recognition in 2011. He has spent his entire career with the Broncos since being selected out of Boise St. in the first round.
