Despite rejecting a reported five-year, $50 million contract extension over the summer, Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady is optimistic that he’ll stay in orange and blue after the season, as he told Mile High Sports Radio’s Peter Burns, Wesley Woodyard and Lindsay Jones on Wednesday morning.
“I’m very confident,” the 2008 first-round pick said as a guest on The Wesley Woodyard Show on AM 1510 & FM 93.7. “The organization wants me here and I want to be here.”
Clady can be a free agent after this season, but the two-time Pro Bowler could also be franchised by the team after the year. However, Clady indicated that he’s looking to sign a long-term deal with the Broncos, and he’s holding out for what he perceives to be a fair price.
“It’s definitely faith in your agent and offensive abilities,” Clady said I’m confident in my abilities and I should be able to get market value.”
