According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Broncos have offered left tackle Ryan Clady a five-year $50 million extension.
“The Broncos have offered Clady a five-year, $50 million contract extension with $28 million guaranteed, according to an NFL source.,” reported Klis.
“The $10 million a year average would make Clady one of the league’s five highest-paid offensive tackles. He is scheduled to make $3.5 million this year, which ranks only 31st among NFL offensive tackles, ” wrote Klis.
Klis says that Clady and his agent are looking for a deal that will pay him an average of $11.5 million per season.
“However, the league source said Clady and his agent, Pat Dye, are seeking a deal that would slightly exceed the contract of Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas, who received an extension last summer that averages $11.5 million a year, according to the NFL Players Association,” wrote Klis.
