Don't know if he's dominant like he once used to be but still really good. I think the Broncos will try to sign him but they won't just open the vault to his agent. It's got to be a reasonable deal for both sides or the deal won't get done. Between 8-10 million I think the deal gets done for both sides. Lower, Clady won't sign, higher, the Broncos won't sign.
The other way around. They had a G at RT during the regular season and it nearly got Joe Flacco killed, they moved Mckinnie (who has played LT for 10 years or so for Minnesota and Baltimore) to LT when he was ready to go, moved Oher to RT and moved Osemele to G where he belongs. If anything the Baltimore situation shows the importance of not just drafting a good young guy and throwing him at tackle and hoping - having a proven LT is important.
