While Justice has the top rating there’s always more interest in left tackles, so who leads the way there? Well, step forward Ryan Clady who is picking the right time to produce his best form with his contract coming up. He’s building himself a case for Joe Thomas-type money with the Cleveland Brown left tackle just behind him in the third spot.

Not very surprised by this, Manning is amazing at avoiding pressure and changing the protection and play. Clady is also best when he knows where his QB is (in the pocket) and Manning is the definition of a pocket QB, he does a lot of sliding and moving in the pocket but he almost always stays between his blockers.

Was always a strong possibility with Manning at QB instead of Orton or Tebow.

We'll find a way to keep him, no doubt in my mind about that. We've invested a lot in Manning, if he stays healthy there's a 3 or 4 year window for us to win a Lombardi. No way we let the starting LT walk.

I just hope it doesn't handicap us too much in terms of pursuing other players who could improve the team.

How about #15?... thats a little surprising. He has been playing well. So the question begs... " Is this more a product of Mannings quick release and masterfull execution to avoid/ counter the blitz? He is the Sheriff and all.

Our Oline is not quite where it needs to be, but Clady is a major cog in keeping it going.

PFF is a joke

Clady was not bad last year

We need to try and lock him up though

He has been a rock for us

Clady's been awesome this season. Franklin has made huge strides as well. Same goes to Beadles.

Yep, they are going to have to pony up more than 50m. Looks like he made the right call.

Clady is worth more...not a lot more....but more.

If we had to play without him....then, you would see just how much he is worth.

I'd offer him $11m for 10yrs and $33m guarenteed and call it a deal!

it was a calculated move on Clady's part and it appears to be working. We all knew that Manning would make him look like a true blue chip franchise LT. If he stays healthy all year he looks to be in real good shape for his big money contract.

The thing is, if Clady is 100% healthy he is the legit real deal. Before his injury the guy was stonewalling everybody. Even with the nags of a past injury he still in league with the best tackles in the game. That kind of talent is worth keeping.

He's been pretty average since the injury but he was also working with unconventional QBs like Tebow and well, subpar talent like Orton. Fact is, the Manning effect is helping him, along with all the other guys on the oline.

I was saying all summer to sign Clady or they will pay through the nose later. Of course no one listened!

I agree. Just pay him. Denver won't be able to replace a guy like Clady next year, hell it could take 5+ years to get a LT like him again.

If Clady won't sign Broncos can tag him.

what good does that do if you want him for a long period of time? Best to give him what he is worth and get a long 5+ year contract out of him.

Tag him through the draft. Get a LT. Trade him for a linebacker. Boom.

Thats how I see it..

While he was a great rookie IMO not that special since..

IIRC led the league in holding calls last year when he did not allow the sack..

Now maybe he is completely healed up..

But I also read somewhere credible that OLT are not the end all in today's NFL like they were 10 years ago..

With the fast pace of the passing game the ball comes out quicker than before and therefore lots less need for billions spent on the OLT..


Tag him for the year draft or bring in a young one to learn the spot and let him go after the kiddie has it down..

OR offer him an incentive based contract with letting him earn those big bucks.. I think we all know he wants a huge contract, but no more than what we offered him already..

It would suck to use a 1st on a LT, hopefully they come to an agreement

Down for this.

On a totally UNRELATED note: You guys remember when Togy Ugoh looked like the best tackle in the league?
