The Denver Broncos and Pro Bowl left tackle Ryan Clady agreed to a new, long-term contract on Sunday.
Clady’s new five-year, $52.5 million deal could be pushed as high as $57.5 million if Clady reaches two more Pro Bowls, and will pay him $33 million in guaranteed money. That means a whopping 63 percent of the contract is guaranteed and it makes him the third-highest paid left tackle in the NFL behind Joe Thomas and Jason Peters.
Clady is recovering from shoulder surgery and was scheduled to to earn $9.8 million this season because the Broncos placed the franchise tag on him for this year. The two sides came to an agreement before the July 15 deadline to sign franchise players to long-term deals.
