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

        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.

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

            availability always trumps ability. Ability doesn't matter if you aren't available.

            that being said, I'd love to see him healthy at a low cap number. Winning formula.

              It would be great to see Clady come back healthy. There is very little downside to bringing him back at a reduced rate. That being said, even if Clady returns to form...it would still be smart to draft an OT high.

                My initial thought after Clady tore his ACL is "buh-bye".

                Keep in mind that Clady suffered the Lisfranc injury two months after he signed the $52 million dollar contract, missed almost all of that season, came back and was average at best last season, and then tore his ACL. That's 3 seasons, two of which he missed, and one that was average, after signing the HUGE Contract. The guy has gotten paid a helluva lot of money for very little activity on the field. So yeah, it's good to hear that he is willing to make changes to his Contract.

                After the hell that the OL went through last season, and the chance that Sambrailo's Labrum surgery could keep him out well into next season, it appears to be a good idea to at least see where Clady stands, physically, before making any decisions. I don't consider the ACL as a big issue, and it may be that he has had a chance to more completely recover from the Lisfranc injury.

                  Some people say we couldn't be any worse off with him than Scofield but I beg to differ I think we could be worse off than with schofield depending on what clady is willing to take salary wise.

                  If he truly wants to be Bronco, let's see how much he's willing to give back to remain on the team and if he's not willing to give very much back then I say cut him.

                  At this point the injuries have built up, he's not going to be what he once was and its too much of a risk he's become injury prone.

                    Not to mention that we've gotton to two super bowls with his cap hit but not him.

                      Schofield has been improving since Manning has come back. It's been delayed blitzes up the middle that is killing us. Wouldn't be surprised to see Scho and Sambraillo as our bookends with Clady sliding into LG. Ryan Harris has been improving at LT too and could be our swing tackle next season.

                        Key word "Restructure" I think Elways is going to ask him for a "Pay Cut" not a "Restructure" since you know, 2 of the years he was paid a lot, he only played 3-4 games max together. Broncos payed him 3 years already for 1.2 years worth of protection.

                          If restructure means taking a pay cut, then cool. The dude hasn't been on the field much the last few seasons, but I'd still like to see him stay.

                            Then again I remember when DT was "willing to take a deal"..

                              Yeah, no kidding.. If he's still expecting full cash but back ended, he's out.

                                On Clady...he knows the deal. He is going to get released and while LTs are in value ones that have misses as much time as Clady the last three years will find getting paid not as easy as some think. IMO only a crap team would pay him well with no team protection.

                                Restructuring a deal with Denver is the way to go. If I was Clady I would make it a 1 year contract with incentives so that if he does play well (he will assuming no injury) then he is a free agent in 2017 with a year of good play under his belt. The contract offers will be much better.


                                On Joe Thomas

                                He doesn't, so, he isn't.
                                He would have come here

                                Clev wanted a lot in return for trade

                                one article (never sure how much to trust something only one news source reports) also said Thomas would play in Denver but he wanted a raise.


                                I think the contract could have been worked out.

                                Think the trade comp was too out of wack.
