Ryan Clady “definitely willing to talk” about redoing contract

There are plenty of differences between this year’s Broncos and the team that lost the Super Bowl to the Seahawks at MetLife Stadium two years ago.

One similarity is that left tackle Ryan Clady won’t be in the lineup come Super Bowl Sunday. Clady missed Super Bowl XLVIII with a foot injury and he missed the entire season with a torn ACL, although he’ll be with the team all week as Gary Kubiak has taken a different approach from John Fox when it comes to players on injured reserve traveling with the team.

Clady would like to make a comeback for the Broncos next season and said that he’s willing to talk about redoing his contract to make that happen. Clady, who is set to make $9.5 million in 2016, said he hasn’t spoken to the Broncos yet, but expects to after the Super Bowl.

“I’m definitely willing to talk,” Clady said, via the Associated Press. “I definitely would like to be a lifetime Bronco.”

Rookie Ty Sambrailo replaced Clady for the first three games of the season before joining him on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. Ryan Harris will get the start against the Panthers and is set to be a free agent after the season.

    “Definitely willing to talk” does not currently describe Big John Football.

    The only reason he is willing to restructure now is because he knows Denver will cut him at his salary. The dude is a shell of his former self. He knows he won’t get nearly the same money if he hits FA. I think Denver cuts him still and tries to fix the oline in FA and the draft.

    Clady has a lot of talent and a lot of bad luck. I hope he stays a Bronco. This is a smart move by him.

    Who cares. Will be Super Bowl losers one week from today.

    Elwaay’s cap management has been abysmal. When the window slams shut next Sunday night, the Broncos will be rebuilding for years.

    Potemkin Village in Denver.

    Look at all those free agents. I would be appalled if I was a Denver fan witch such inept management.

    Right, I mean basically have been a 1 or 2 seed for 4 consecutive seasons and made 2 super bowls. Such a horrible GM and organization!

    I think a lot of fans wish they had a team that would put their chips on the table when the opportunity is there.

  7. boknowsall says: Jan 31, 2016 12:57 PM

    Cap management stinks for sure

  8. tylawspick6 says: Jan 31, 2016 1:02 PM

    Imagine having 9 or 10 FAs that are key starters on a team that is in the Super Bowl?

    Has Elway been drunk for the past 5 years?

    Look at all the draft picks from 2010 or 2011, he wasn’t able to wisely budget for. It’s not like he’s had great drafts either, so it’s not like there are players under their rookie deals keeping costs down like the Pats have.

    Lastly, Demarius Thomas’s contract is an albatross just like Dez’s down in Dallas.

    They have to beat the Panthers to justify Elway’s highly risky and irresponsible teambuilding approach.

    He’s either clueless as a GM or intentionally careless. Either way, it’s not good for long term sustainability.

    The Thomas contract will be a problem during their 3-5 year rebuilding stage.

    Clady was drafted to play in Denver’s current system. He followed it with multiple 1st team All Pro selections. He is nothing short of being the prototype LT for what Kubes wants to do.

    The rumors of Clady’s demise in Denver have been greatly exaggerated.

  10. jzinke957 says: Jan 31, 2016 1:27 PM

    Panther fan are delirious imagine making playoffs every year they wouldn’t know it 50 wins last 4 seasons panthers are overall a pathetic organization based on the last ten years. Grow up. Hopefully this will be a great Super Bowl

  11. tylawspick6 says: Jan 31, 2016 1:29 PM

    Clady is overpaid and always hurt. Probably all that HGH he was pumping, needing to come off of it.

    Only if he knew about Gomer’s undetectable Chinese HGH from the Guyer Institute, huh?

  12. mongo3401 says: Jan 31, 2016 1:29 PM

    No dog in the fight but I think the Panthers are going to speed up Mannings retirement. Like maybe by the first half.

  13. vdub1980 says: Jan 31, 2016 1:32 PM

    Lol at some of you idiot’s, you have zero clue about Denver’s cap next season and what they’ll have for expenses. They can franchise tag von and still have money to resign and lock down other key FA’s……everybody wants to hate successful organization’s

    Oh puleeze. The Thomas contract is going to be tricky, but Denver will be back in maybe 2 years tops.

    I believe most logical fans will accept a down year or two for a very good 4 year stretch. Welcome to the modern NFL where no team can even remotely expect to win it all ever year.

    NE comes the closest, but there are years where you know they will not make it. GB is locked into a first round exit mode every year.

    While Ryan Clady is one of the best left tackles to ever tie up a pair of cleats, it doesn’t mean a thing if he’s always hurt. Especially in the Superbowl. If he wants to stay on the team he needs to seriously consider cutting his unearned salary in half. Denver needs to left tackle they can count on, and so far Clady has only been partially that.

  17. cinzano08 says: Jan 31, 2016 2:30 PM

    Once the salary cap cheaters lose Sunday they will be number 1 in something, SB LOSSES!

  18. lscratchingthesurface says: Jan 31, 2016 2:31 PM

    John Dorsey is better at his job than John Elway. Have fun next season!!!

  19. slick50ks says: Jan 31, 2016 4:21 PM

    He should be willing. So far he’s an injury bust.

  20. peytonmanningshghconnection says: Jan 31, 2016 4:52 PM

    Denver is going to be a dumpster fire for the next 5 years, no QB, no pro bowl rookies that they can tie up for nothing for the next 4 years and a bunch of overpriced free agents to sign for next year. Old Horse Face has done a great job selling out for 2nd place trophies for the last 4 years

  21. ryanc2015 says: Jan 31, 2016 7:05 PM

    All you haters are pathetic. Nearly every team in the league would love to have the success the Broncos have enjoyed since Elway took over. Folks need to get a life.

    ===============================
    Take note folks, ryanc2015 said “nearly” every team would love to have Broncos’ success. Of course he was implying the Patriots don’t need it. This is what they get every year.
    If anything, this year’s Patriots early postseason loss let me know why you guys hate on Brady and the Patriots so much. I forgot how much it sucks to have our season end so early. Yuck, it makes me shiver all over. Please tell me this is not how you feel ever year……….

    …..yeah, sorry it’s not called “Success” when it’s BOUGHT.

    I’ve no horse in this race (hehe see what I did there?) But everyone’s right Mr.Ed sold out and the Fans are the ones who’ll suffer from it. The Donkey’s are a one trick pony (hehe I did it again.) It’s Super Bowl Win or bust next week and I think Carolina wants it more.

    I hope Elway has enough oats cause there’s a Drought coming to Denver.

  24. headwoundharry says: Jan 31, 2016 9:30 PM

    You guys are still bringing up the salary cap infraction 18 years ago that cost Denver a third round pick?? Wow, just wow! And wasn’t it this year that Denver was to be crippled by salary cap hell? What happened haters? What happened?

    Ok so bcuz they deferred money and thus “circumvented” the cap 18+ years ago, that makes this current team “the salary cap cheaters”?

    Btw. They already have the most SB losses…

    You are either misinformed or have a significant deficit in your intellectual abilities. If you’re going to post something, don’t sound like you just started watching football or you get your facts from fans who troll PFT

    It’s so good to be at the top!
    All the losers below are in their off-season and can only feel good by throwing BS. Panther fans are scared, and the other losers feel inadequate.
    Bring it loser fans, it’s easier than worshiping us.

    Broncos 24 – Panthers 10 BET THE HOUSE!

    Literally the dumbest comment ever posted on pft. Elway took over a team that was coached by josh mcdaniels and GM’d by Brian Xanders during the worst season in Broncos history. He then immediately turned the team around and has won the division 5 consecutive years, 4 of which have been 12+ win seasons, 2 #1 seeds, and two SB appearances WITH TWO DIFFERENT COACHES. He also signed the most expensive and sought after free agent since Reggie white – while keeping the team under the cap. He also seems to have had Von Miller – whom he drafted – for 5 years on a rookie contract. Any team that doesn’t try to “buy” their way to a championship (signing free agents) is crazy. Even your beloved patriots do it, homer. Didn’t Darrel revis help you win a championship? Did the pats draft him?
    I hate the patriots. But I respect the heck out of em, especially BB & TB. If you want to hate the Broncos, I’m cool with that, just please stop with the ill-informed, pathetic drivel. It’s really annoying.

  29. jlstaud says: Jan 31, 2016 11:35 PM

    Seriously. Before you post about the cap, you might want to do just a bit of research. Right now it is expected that the Broncos are 16 million under the cap. They will not have Manning next year which is another $20 million freed up. For those of you who are math challenged that puts us at $36 million. They will most likely renegotiate Clady’s contract and save another 5 million. Again, math challenged, that puts them at about $41 million under the cap. Add to it that they will probably let D Ware go and save another $10 million. Now we’re at $51 million. Do you see what I’m saying here? Denver is going to be just fine. Go ahead and hate the best Executive Team in football.
