Yes, but would Clady be willing to not sign the Franchise tag, holdout, and not get paid. I believe the Franchise would be around $9 million.
I say let him play the season, and if he plays at a high level, then give him a long term contract. Otherwise Franchise him, maybe some team will come in and make a play for him and the Broncos get draft picks.
