They have until July 16 to work out a long-term deal, or he’ll play under the $2.654 million franchise tag.
Klis reported the latest Broncos proposal is worth more than $3 million per year. That’s good for the top eight at his position, but how much more than $3 million is going to determine whether it gets done.
If anyone deserves it, it might be Prater. After all, he has fans in high places.
