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.

Denver Broncos Sleeper: Expectations for Quanterus Smith

Aug 1 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Denver Broncos have no problem taking a chance on a player returning from injury. That’s what they did when they selected defensive end Quanterus Smith in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL draft. This is the team that waited patiently for tight end Julius Thomas to get healthy. Their patience paid off last year as Thomas became a star. They showed patience again when dealing with safety Quinton Carter. He’s finally healthy, and Carter looks like the playe ...

Jul 27 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: milehighreport

Good Morning Broncos Country! Camp is off to a start and now that football is finally here, here are some of my thoughts after keeping up with various reports (isn't it great to have "The Kaptain's Log" back on MHR?) from each session thus far. "D" is forcing more turnovers It even seems to be a point of emphasis this year.  The secondary has picked off Manning quite a bit more than I can even remember last season.  This is one of the area ...
