The recently killed contract extension talks between OL Ryan Clady and the Denver Broncos appears to have died as a result of a dispute over the first three years. Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports the two sides could not agree on the financial figures of the first three, guaranteed years.
Clady's rookie contract ends following the 2012 NFL season, and though the sides could not agree in the 2012 offseason, they expect to continue contract talks following the season:
"Although we want to reach an extension with Ryan, we are unable to do so at this time," John Elway, the Broncos’ executive vice president of football operations, told the Denver Post after negotiations broke off Monday. "Now, our complete focus as an organization must turn toward having a successful 2012 season."
