Why not just tag him and draft a LB?

I say pay him and not have to worry about LT for another 4-5 years. Why try to find another guy who is just as good or better when you know what you have.

Just look at Chris Williams, we could end up busting on an LT and have OL issues for PM's last couple years. Is that what you guys want?

We may have to move way up to get a top shelf MLB though.

So you are going to get rid of your first round Pro Bowl OT for a LBer than your going to draft an unproven rookie OT to protect Manning's blind side

Why don't you just pay Clady and then draft a LBer in the first round

What if the team tags Clady and then Clady refuses to show up and holds out? This goes into the season and now Clady is holding out and Who does Denver have playing at LT? I made this same case this summer when I insisted Denver extend Clady.

He has been a great Pro and a good on and off field leader. Reward him and lets not worry about LT for the next 5 or 6 years.

Still you tag him, then make the deal. I doubt Broncos sign him quick enough to not tag him. But I am all for a 4-5 yr deal, whatever. Just saying no way he walks, the Broncos would tag him if he wanted too much money.

tag him, sign him to a deal and then draft a MLB(no, not just a LB, a MLB)
makes no sense to let him walk and have to replace him with another player who won't play as good unless there is a injury concern that makes the guy slip to us.

DT,DE or MLB needs to be the first round pick next year. get a C later on as well.

Are you saying you never make a couple jokes here and there? All i did was make the same joke twice. Like that never happens on the Mane.

Trade him to Jacksonville now for MJD, a first and a second.

With Peyton Manning, your LT only needs to pass block for 2 seconds 8 out of 10 passes.

Yes, I never make a joke anywhere.

With Elway here, he's putting a huge emphasis on homegrown players...

He's not being traded.

8 out of 10 huh? On the other two passes Manning gets creamed.

we did on him.. what is the problem? if he is going to break the bank on a position that is not as highly thought of over the past 4-5 years..

Might not even need a first rounder..

I'm going to let John E do the heavy lifting on this one.. but I'd be surprised if the give him the ridiculous numbers some here have mentioned..

Not only that, you see what they get away with these days. They practically neck strangle the quicker outside rushers and holding is almost never called. I'm not saying having a good LT is not a huge bonus to have because it is, but it's not like it was 10 years ago.

I think the 2 sides will work something out. Broncos might go up a tad but I doubt much more.

+ We are in the Win Now Mode next year. Peyton ist not getting younger. You can not afford to loose your LT, when you pay your QB 18 Millions a year to get you the ring.
