$28 million of that offer is guaranteed, which is the real number to focus on.

True; also the word is he wants more than that, so we'll see what happens, if he will be franchised next year, etc.

However, the league source said Clady and his agent, Pat Dye, are seeking a deal that would slightly exceed the contract of Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas, who received an extension last summer that averages $11.5 million a year, according to the NFL Players Association.

the $10 million average annual value would put Clady with the NFLís top-five highest-paid left tackles.

Clady, who is in the final year of his rookie contract, is owed $3.5 million in 2012.

Per Klis, however, the offer isnít viewed as strong enough by Cladyís camp. Agent Pat Dye reportedly wants a deal worth more than that of Clevelandís Joe Thomas. Thomas signed an eight-year, $92 million deal last August and is the NFLís richest left tackle.

Clady isnít as good as Thomas ó and it isnít even close. So the fact that Clady wants more money than a player heís inferior to suggests no deal is imminent, barring a surprise increase in the Broncosí already reasonable offer or decrease in Cladyís unreasonable contract demands.

The Broncos made a really good offer. Joe Thomas got $44 million guaranteed in an eight-year contract. $5.5 million guaranteed per year. This deal would give Clady $28 million guaranteed in a five-year contract, $5.6 million guaranteed per year. Clady is not as good as Joe Thomas, and a $10 million salary is a very fair offer. Let him play for his current salary, then give him a franchise tag next year. There is no need to accept Clady's unrealistic demands.

He hasnt been as good as his rookie year. He is still living off of that season. Prove you are better than Joe Thomas or the other Top 3 O Linemen.

Agreed. This is a generous offer considering his level of play since the injury. If he wants more he should prove he can return to his prior form this season.

Wow can you say "overspending"? No way Clady is worth that much. Especially after this last season.

That's a high offer. Clady should accept it. If he doesn't, make him play it out. We'll see how good he really is trying to hold off a ferocious pass rush designed to get Peyton the only way he can be gotten -- quick pressure.

That's ok....Clady isn't going anywhere.

Denver can franchise him next year if they aren't able to work out a new deal.

Because he gets rid of it quickly? Offset by the amount of pressure to get at Peyton. Tebow had people actually not wanting to get to him, to make him throw it.

The pass rush will be amped up this year.

And "just get rid of it" is not always the magic answer. Yes, you can avoid a sack. But sometimes Peyton prefers to go ahead and have protection to allow a play to develop.

Clady should sign that as quick as he can. He is banking on Manning making him look like a stud which will happen but none of Manning's LT in the past outside of Glenn were worth any amount of money at all.

Yep. He should grab the money because his recent play doesn't justify this offer or his perceived value. That rookie year has done him good.

The position is a highly paid on (second highest paid position, last I heard). So there's not much to be saved there. Just amounts to a decision that he is the perennial starter.

The season will have a big impact on the number. If clady plays like an all pro that number has to go up to his asking price. If he gives up a lot of sacks and plays bad, or gets injured that number will go down. Clady is banking on the 2012 season performance being his leverage.

Pat Bowlen is clearly broke.

Anyways Ryan take the ****ing money and run. Or at least block. You want Thomas money, earn Thomas money.

Clady hasn't looked right since the injury. Hopefully Manning back there will raise his confidence as he gets the ball out quicker.

Surprised Clady's side is still holding out for more. Value of having a great left tackle isn't as strong as it used to be. There was an article where Gary Zimmerman was saying with 3 & 5 step drops becoming so popular, it makes it much easier for the left tackle to protect the QB. 7 step drops is where elite LT made their money.

completely agree with this post..

He was great his rookie year then got hurt and is playing off rep since..

IMO tell him to sign or be tagged the next couple of years.. time enough to get a qualified replacement for him.. and with todays rookie contract we will save a ton of money over the next 4-5 years..

SOunds to me like he is not to smart..

He should try exceeding Joe Thomas' level of play if he wants that then.

Clady is a good LT but he's not a 5 year player with 5 pro bowls and 3 1st team selections and 1 2nd team selection.

Hell, if Clady doesnt come to his senses, Elway might go back to Sturges in 2013 and get Zimmerman to come out of retirement.
