NFL: Broncos, Ryan Clady Agree to 5-Year, $57.5 M Deal

Jul 15 2013, 12:47am CDT | by

The Denver Broncos reportedly agreed to a five-year, $57.5 million deal with left tackle Ryan Clady.

Peyton Manning should be glad Ryan Clady will be there to protect his blind side once again. 

The Denver Post's Mike Klis reports Clady agreed to a five-year, $52.5 million contract with a maximum value of $57.5 million with the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Klis adds there will be $33 million in guarantees spread out over the first three years of the deal. He says part of that guaranteed amount is fully guaranteed while the other part is guaranteed against injury. 

The new deal also makes Clady one of the richest offensive linemen in the NFL, per Klis. To support this argument, NFL.com's Dan Hanzus writes Clady's guaranteed money edges that of the St. Louis Rams' Jake Long ($12 million) and the Houston Texans' Duane Brown ($22 million). It's only the Cleveland Brown's Joe Thomas' ($40 million) which beats out Clady's.

Clady seems to be satisfied with the terms of the new deal. He's also glad to be with Denver on a long-term basis. 

"You only go through this once. Hopefully, I get to do this again, but we'll see. But the guarantee and the structure of the first three years was much better than it was last summer.

"I'm getting blown up (with phone calls) right now. I'm ready to chill. Glad to be with Broncos long-term."

He also posted the good news on his Facebook page on July 14. 

"Not official until tomorrow, but I'm blessed for this opportunity to play for such a great franchise for another 5 years! Thanks to everyone who supported me through out this process! Excited to get back to work!"

An ESPN update on July 14 points out Clady faced a Monday deadline for franchise players to accept long-term deals. Had Clady not signed under the terms of the new deal, he would have been a Bronco under a one-year $9.823 million contract under the franchise tag.   

The 26-year-old Clady had a right shoulder injury but still managed to allow just one sack. He was First-Team All-Pro and a Pro Bowler in the 2012 NFL season.

Matt Kalil Off to Another Slow Start for the Minnesota Vikings

Sep 16 2014 1:07am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Minnesota Vikings are now two games deep in their 2014 season, and left tackle Matt Kalil has become one of the team’s biggest question marks with his poor start. General manager Rick Spielman and the Minnesota brass prioritized Kalil in the 2012 NFL draft enough to make him the No. 4 overall selection. Selecting a player in the top five of the draft usually means staking your reputation to him as a decision-maker. At the very least, it means projecting that player to ...

Joint practices allow NFL teams to rest stars

Aug 24 2014 4:41pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

DENVER — The sight of J.J. Watt donning a baseball cap even before the Houston Texans’ first defensive series was over said it all: teams are changing the way they treat the preseason. Starters have traditionally played into the second half of the third exhibition game, a final tuneup for the regular season. Yet, even Peyton Manning had no need for his helmet when the Denver Broncos returned to the field after halftime against the Texans on Saturday night. Houston coach Bill O’Brien and Denver ...
