All-Pro offensive tackle Ryan Clady had to miss the NFL Pro Bowl this year due to a shoulder injury. It turns out that the shoulder will in fact require surgery. He injured the shoulder in the Denver Broncos’ final regular season game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was able to play in the Broncos playoff game after sitting out of practices during the bye week.
The surgery will force Clady to miss OTA’s and most of training camp, but he is expected to be ready for the season opener.
Clady is a free agent this off season, and the Broncos are looking for him to come back. The team could slap the franchise tag on him which would pay him about $9.66 million for next season, or they cold offer him a multi-year contract that would pay him at least $10 miller per year.
Clady has never missed a regular season game in his five-year career.
