The Denver Broncos have locked down their left tackle position for the next five years. Ryan Clady and the Broncos have agreed on a 5-year $57.5 million contract. $33 million of that deal is guaranteed.

The left tackle position is one of the most important positions in the game and the Broncos have one of the best of them. Locking up that position will be important for Peyton Manning and for whoever takes that role after Manning decides to hang the cleats up.

In Clady’s 5 seasons in the league, he has been selected to the Pro Bowl for 3 of those seasons and has been an All-Pro for 2 of those seasons.

The Broncos won’t have to deal with the distraction of Clady not having a contract throughout the season and can now have all focus on the Super Bowl. The Broncos will be one of the favorites to go all the way to the big game. Let’s see if  they can pull it through in the playoffs this time around. They will need that secondary to step it up.
