    Clady wants to be lifelong Bronco.

    An article on NFL.com says LT Ryan Clady I'd not only interested in a restructure to his contract but wants to be a lifelong Broncos.

    Under his current correct he's due to get $9.5 million in 2016 and $10 million in 2017.

    If they make an offer I think it's a great idea.

    Broncos LT Ryan Clady eager to restructure contract

    Denver Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady is willing to restructure his contract in order to stay with the team, per the Associated Press.

    Clady sustained a torn ACL in May, missing the entire 2015 season and his second Super Bowl in three seasons. He missed the Broncos' last Super Bowl berth due to a foot injury that sidelined him for all but two games of the 2013 season.

    The veteran said he has yet to be approached about restructuring his contract. Under his current deal, he's due $9.5 million next season and $10 million in 2017.

    "I'm sure that'll come after the season," Clady added. "I'm definitely willing to talk. I definitely would like to be a lifetime Bronco."

    Clady has started in 98 games since the Broncos selected him 12th overall in the 2008 draft.

      Players like this are definitely very rare. His medical history is kinda worrisome.

      I'd still love to see what numbers Elway's guy can throw at him, and see the outcome.

        Clady's 2016 Cap Number is $10.1m. Dead Money is $1.2m. So savings if cut = $8.9m

          If he can come back on a restructured deal I would love to have him back next year. He will obviously be a better option than Schoffield and would allow us to move Ty back to RT.

          This is the system Clady was drafted to play in, and the one he has had most success in. He would be an excellent addition to this young line.

            Clady coming back is a massive relief for the draft and opens the Broncos up to spend the number one pick on perhaps another position, (i.e. WR, DE, RB, etc.) and picking up a developmental Tackle later.

              Sounds great on paper. But lets see how he plays on the field.

              If he can be 80% of what he was or better then it is worth discussing. If his injuries limit him then it would be a waste of salary cap.

              I would be as thrilled as anyone if he can be close to the player he was for a hell of a lot less. Certainly would resolve a part of the o-line issues.

                He's only 29, So I feel pretty good about him coming back to a productive form. Like I said, he can't be worse than Schoffield.

                  If the restructured contract is favourable, and he proves the injury is behind him, it'd be great to see him back out there.

                    Well if he is in shape what would be a respectable restructure?
                    Years and money wise? Somewhere around 4 or 5? The hard part is not really knowing where he is health wise

                      He has now missed 2 super bowls...and we need him desperately NOW. It's a tough one, one of the best at his position, but if he's not out there ... and the money could go elsewhere. Hmm.

                        Unfortunately, with superstition being what it is, people might be opposed to him being around since both times he missed a season the Broncos made it to the Super Bowl.🙊😉

                        Either he really likes Denver or his agent is telling him it's the best business move for him.

                          Left tackles, even ones with injury history, don't grow on trees.

                          I am very encouraged by this from ol Sweet Feet. He's better than anything even coming off injury than what we'd end up paying his replacement. Plus he's a familiar face in the locker room and by all accounts a good character guy. I see no downside to getting his contract into a respectable market price for a tackle of his service and letting him play out his career as a Bronco.

                          Very encouraged.

                            He lost me at "I want to be a lifetime Bronco". If the restructure will allow us to sign some of our other FA, than I'm all for it. I would, however put in a health clause.

                              Couldn't we get Joe Thonas for the same dollar amount we are paying Clady?

                                If he wanted to play here, he'd be here.

                                He doesn't, so, he isn't.
