Ryan Clady Contract Extension: Clady, Broncos Hit Snag In Talks

If Ryan Clady and the Denver Broncos don't agree to a contract extension prior to the start of training camp on July 25, the offensive tackle will become a free agent after this season. According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, that outcome is becoming increasingly likely. Klis reported Wednesday morning that the Clady and the Broncos have exchanged proposals for a long-term extension, but are far enough apart on salary numbers that's highly unlikely a deal will be reached before Denver breaks for camp.

Clady is on the final year of his rookie deal in 2012, which will pay him $3.5 million. Klis also reported that if a deal isn't reached by next Wednesday, it becomes increasingly likely that the Broncos will use the franchise tag on Clady sometime prior to the 2013 season.

Clady has made two Pro Bowls in his first four seasons in the NFL.
