Earlier in the day, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported that the Broncos and Clady are currently at an impasse regarding a restructured contract that would come with a reduced salary in 2016.
Given that the offensive tackle market no longer includes many note able options, you would have to think the Broncos could recoup some value for Clady.
The Giants, Lions and Seahawks have been in the market for offensive tackle help, so they’re at least worth keeping an eye on the coming days.
Clady, 29, has another two years remaining on his five-year, $52.5 million contract that included contains $33 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $9.5 million in 2016 and another $10 million in 2017.
According to OverTheCap.com, trading Clady would free up $8,900,000 in available cap space for the Broncos and create $1.2 million in dead money.
In 2014, Clady appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 41 offensive tackle out of 84 qualifying players.
