    Elway and crew will get it worked out and we will have our left tackle back

    It should be mentioned since it's failed to have been mentioned yet, this was the system Clady was drafted to play in.

    Food for thought.

    If a LT was likely to be on the market it would be Jason Peters.

    No. Joe Thomas is under contract for several more years with Cleveland. Their new coaching staff doesn't appear to be interested in trading their star left tackle.

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    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.

    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.
