Denver Broncos: Team Should Extend Matt Paradis
By Tylor Walden
Matt Paradis has become the center piece of the Broncos offensive line. Despite injuries, he provides consistency. It is time to give him an extension.
Matt Paradis has gone from a member of the practice squad to the most consistent members of the offensive line. Broncos Country has seen how bad the offensive line can get. With the multiple changes and players that have been on the line, only the center has remained consistent.
Despite all of the injuries Paradis has dealt with the last two seasons, he finds a way to suit up and perform his job at a high level. It almost appears that the Broncos have tried to build the offensive line around him.
A strong center to protect the quarterback is something every quarterback dreams about. The other four positions could help too. There is no doubt Denver wants to have an offensive line that can protect for years.

This is why it is important to sign Matt Paradis to an extension. According to Troy Renck, that could very well be a possibility. However, he believes those talks will not happen until the end of training camp.
There is not a doubt in my mind that Paradis deserves to be extended by the Denver Broncos. He brings tremendous value to the offensive line and has remained consistent on the field despite his bad hips. He has stated that his hips are doing well.
It would be interesting to see what he could make when they discuss the extension. We have seen offensive linemen get paid this offseason alone. Ryan Jensen is the current highest paid center in the NFL, making $42 million dollars over four years with $22 million guaranteed.
It is unknown if Matt Paradis will get that much from the Denver Broncos. But there is no doubt he should stick with the Broncos for a long time.
