In this case, the player of his caliber almost always will get franchised because he can not pass the physical. Plus, the two injuries are Joints not soft tissue, which means they can be chronic and cause perfromance to drop drastically. Personally, I still think Clady is a little off from his first 2 years ability physically. Another injury, an essential one in protecting the QB is an issue for GM's.
With the franchise tag hit on the cap, and Clady's injury, I wonder if the Broncos would consider letting Clady walk and drafting a replacement? I know that sounds crazy, especially with Manning, but is it possible simply because of the contract issue and cap hit?
