Dan Pompei of the National Football Post writes that there’s “no way” Broncos LT Ryan Clady hits the open market, despite the fact that the two sides were unable to reach an agreement leading up to and during the season.
Denver reportedly offered him a five-year deal worth $50 million, with $28 million in guarantees. Contract negotiations are expected to be revisited at some point during the offseason, but Pompei notes that Denver could always franchise him if needed.
Clady has been great since the team went back to a traditional offense, instead of the heavy running scheme that they used last season with Tim Tebow. We have him listed as the No. 1 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
