(Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images) Last week, the Denver Broncos locked up Ryan Clady by placing their franchise tag on the Pro Bowl left tackle.  Once the new league year begins, they are expected to place a second-round tender on punter Britton Colquitt. “Colquitt is already a restricted free agent. To make sure he stays restricted, the Broncos are expected to place a second-round tender on him March 12, which would pay him a $2.023 million salary for 2013,” wrote the Denver Post‘s Mike Klis. “Other teams can still try to sign away Colquitt, but besides paying him a relatively lucrative contract they would have to give the Broncos a second-round draft choice. That’s highly unlikely to happen.” Klis went on to note that the Broncos would ultimately like to wrap up both Colquitt and Clady with multi-year deals.  Meanwhile, fullback Chris Gronkowski has been informed he will not be tendered, making it highly unlikely that he will return with Denver next season. Britton’s brother, Dustin, just became the highest paid punter in the league when he signed a five-year, $18.75 million deal with the Chiefs, keeping him in Kansas City.  Both of the Colquitt brothers have high-powered right legs.
