The best LT available in free-agency will be back with the Broncos next season if he signs the tag deal, Clady gave up only one sack last season in over 1,000 snaps and started every single game in his career since joining the league in 2008.

Announcing this now is the first shot fired at his agent. "Let's get talking or he's getting tagged".

He's worth the money. They ought to pay the man.

He's gonna get paid. He'll get a deal around 10-10.5 mil a year is my guess. 3x All-Pro and 3x Pro-Bowler, might be the best LT in the game? Yeah, that's ca$h.

Broncos are just applying leverage. There isn't a soul alive that believes Dove Valley was going to let him walk. He is more important to that franchises future then even Manning.

He was the best LT in football this season. The guy is going to get a massive contract. Probably close to the most money ever for an o-linemen. So if he and his agent were smart they'd want to get a deal done ASAP while his value is at an all time high.

Denver sort of screwed up by not offering him a long term contract before bringing in Peyton Manning. Clady was very good, but not great before and with the Peyton effect he looks like an All-Star and they're gonna have to pay him like it.

He was great before Manning. They did offer, he wanted more. He'll get more.

If anything I was more impressed with Clady when he had to protect happy feet Cutler, limp noodle Orton and Tebowmania. The guy is elite talent and it surprises me a long term deal hasn't been worked out. No way anyone will love him more then Denver does.

How much is the tag for a LT? That's gotta be a biggg number.

Always wondered, is it pronounced "Claid-y" or "Clad-y"?

This guy is probably the best LT in the League right now. Had a spectacular year protecting one of the best QBs. He deserves to be paid and it's a good move by the Broncos to ensure they keep him, whether they dish out the cash this offseason or next.

Before last season I thought the best LT was someone like Long, Peters, or Thomas but now I can safely say almost without a doubt Clady has taken that spot. He's that good. One sack allowed is extremely impressive.

Nope. Duane Brown was better. If it weren't for injuries, Trent Williams' season would have been better than either of them however. In fact I think time will prove that Williams is a flat out better player than both.

Duane Brown has a case, Trent Williams is not better than Ryan Clady.
