Clady To Get The Franchise Tag

The Broncos will place the franchise tag on left tackle Ryan Clady by the Monday deadline, a maneuver that all but takes him off the free-agent market, Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports.

The Broncos and Clady hope to work out a multiyear contract extension prior to training camp, but serious negotiations may not commence until the two-time All Pro is further along in his recovery from right shoulder surgery.

Clady is not expected to attend the team’s offseason workout program without a multiyear extension.

If the Broncos go another year without an agreement, they could also place a second franchise tag on Clady for the 2014 season, although he would receive an automatic 20 percent increase to $11.794 million.
