The Denver Broncos will put a franchise tag on LT Ryan Clady. They have to protect their chances at a Super Bowl run and that means protecting Peyton Manning. If only the San Diego Chargers had put a priority in protecting Philip Rivers, we wouldn’t be in the mess that we are in right now.

Franchising Clady will take the best left tackle off of the free agency market. The Chargers weren’t going to get a shot at him anyway. He would have come at a hefty price tag and we are strapped for cash at the moment. We have some players that didn’t live up to their pay check that we are stuck with it for a bit.

It would have been awesome if Clady left Denver. Anything to take weapons away from Peyton Manning and that offense. I am sure that is how fans from other teams felt when Vincent Jackson, Marcus McNeill and Kris Dielman all left town. We have at least one more season where we have to face off against the big left tackle.

    Why are ppl surprised everyone knew clady wasn’t leaving. Even Dwayne bowe could stay with the chiefs long term and he should the chiefs would be foolish to let him leave cause unlike a ex GM that we know They don’t let talent go hint hint Vincent Jackson

    Clady wasn’t going anywhere. If he did, someone might get a clean shot on Manning and that could be all bad in a hurry.
